Notes:

Bourbon on the nose , perfectly balanced with the porter super nice ,knowing it’s unrepeatable is frustrating super smooth , no hint of alcohol creamy head nice lacing on glass just special , sometimes you get lucky this time I did

    Not unrepeatable. Check out my brewing notes on my Big Wood Porter recipe. I repeat my recipe every year for Super Bowl party. Soak oak cubes in bourbon
