Product details

Our Bourbon Barrel Porter is so good, we just had to scale it down to share with all the small batch brewers out there.

This black beauty is quite possibly perfection in a pint. It combines the elements of beer, bourbon, and oak to create an amazing array of compelling flavors. The smokiness of the toasted American oak cubes mingle with the dark flavors of the porter, while the sweet grainy and vanilla flavors of the bourbon reinforce the oak to tie everything together.

We recommend just a wee dram of fine aged bourbon to complement and enhance the flavors of oak and porter. The hardest part about making this beer as a small batch? It a small batch. The solution: make 2 batches today and stash one away because it'll just get better with age.

Bourbon Barrel Porter

Why is it so flat? Taste is fine but it's like an old soft drink in a 2 litre bottle that's 2 weeks old. Can I expect this if I do a 1 gallon Stout also? The citrus IPA was excellent. What happened and how can I fix next time? Thanks!

Good but not great

My husband loved making this and had really high hopes but once the bottle conditioning was complete, the beer was flat. He could barely hear any sign of carbonation when popping the tops off the bottles and refused to even try it

A great and delicious porter!

This Porter is packed with so much flavor I kept finding myself double-checking to make sure the package says Porter and not Stout. I used some Angel's Envy with my oak cubes, adding some great depth of flavor to the beer itself. I love that I can also taste some of that smokiness from the oak cubes themselves; makes this a fun drinking beer.

1st try with Bourbon Barrel Porter, extract Beer

I’ll start by saying the beer turned out quite tasty!
I was worried at first because it took a day or so to start fermenting. But I was impatient (as usual)
I was not sure when ai was supposed to add the oak and bourbon and I did when there were no more bubbles coming up. I like the fizz drops at bottling time. The only thing I found wanting was the beer was thin, not the thick mouthfeel I like. Will keep tweaking the recipe to my taste! Any suggestions on getting this extract beer a bit thicker?
