This is one amazingly complex and balanced imperial porter. With 50% of this aged in bourbon and scotch barrels, the flavors pulled through are almost unbelievable. The blend Deschutes created brings a near perfect blend with the alcohol not over powering the malt or flavors but complementing them perfectly. The carbonation is a bit higher than we see in many barrel aged beers, but it really allows for the flavors to come through at every point. This imperial porter is one experience you don’t want to miss.
