Aged on Bourbon-soaked American oak, flavors of coffee, vanilla and caramel intensify into a blizzard of dark fruit, toasted oak and whiskey.
The jet-black body is blanketed in a dirty coffee-cream colored head that offers aromas of smoky, burnt biscuit and a touch of wood on the nose. Robust roasted malt character accumulates alongside caramel sweetness and hops for an intense yet refined flavor profile.
Wonderfully balanced, Bourbon Barrel Porter is smooth and full-bodied, cellaring well for an increasingly complex and satisfying brew.
If you enjoyed Snow Plow Porter, or Bourbon Barrel Old Ale, you'll love this kit!

I poll "our people" (i.e., our grown children) every summer on what they'd like for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers and this has been also the "fan favorite" the past 4-5 years.
FYI, the muslin sack that came with this last kit was also a tad small.
Love this beer, make it a few times each year

Very good beer. I used 1792 bourbon (my favorite) and it was excellent. You want a smooth flavorful bourbon with this, not a harsh one.
My bourbon barrel has been bottled but won’t be ready to drink until next weekend. The uncarberated Beer was delicious with a fabulous bourbon taste.
