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.

Perfect!

Your kit came out great. I’m new at this & made some mistakes the 1st couple brews (different brewers). I was very careful with yours, watched the video & can really taste the results. Yours was easy to understand & taste great!

Very nice, very smooth

I appreciated all the other reviews on this recipe. I took much of that advice and waited a little extra longer before I finally couldn’t resist trying my first bottle. After 3 weeks of conditioning I cracked one and was not disappointed! It came out very nice. Like others said, it was a little low on carbonation but certainly not too flat. It just seemed less fizzy like a lot of darker beers are. I used 3oz of angels envy bourbon and that added a nice amount of flavor. I don’t have a hydrometer but based on the buzz, I’m guessing it came out in the 6-7% range. I had a second one after 4 weeks and didn’t notice much difference. I’ll definitely take my time with this batch because I’d like to see how it plays out over time. Great recipe!
