Foothills "Peoples Porter" (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
Foothills Brewing - Winston-Salem, North Carolina USA
Porter (ABV 6%) (IBU 42)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a very dark thick brown, almost black in color with a huge (3-4 finger) light brown fluffy head that lasted throughout with awesome thick pillowy sheets of lacing.

The aroma was bold and enticing of a dark roasted bread malt and a moderate dose of a leathery yeast with notes of molasses, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak cask, a mild hint of dark fruit and a light bourbon scent.

The taste was bitter sweet and a tad malty with a touch of chocolate, molasses and a light fruitiness early on, becoming slightly bitterer and very smooth with a large dose of coffee creeping in with a mild cask presence and a slight alcohol presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted a nice long time after the swallow with a Chocó-coffee maltiness giving way to a soothing bourbon alcohol warming sensation.

Mouthfeel was well past medium in body with a dry, creamy texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this is one fine tasting brew. It has everything working in unison together allowing for an incredible drinking experience...
