Jack's Abby Bourbon Barrel-Aged Framinghammer

Return to List

This is an outstanding barrel-aged porter, with everything playing well together and in perfect harmony. It's big and bold right from the start, but pleasingly so, with robust, decadent aromas and flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla bean all hit by a warm overlay of baking spice and sweet oak. The palate is silky smooth, with a round, creamy texture that's complemented by mild, yet ample, carbonation and a hint of bittersweet cocoa. The finish is long and warming, with lingering tones of burnt brown sugar, sweet spice and molasses-soaked oak. Enjoy this now and over the next few years. Lauren Buzzeo
