Nebraska Toasted Barn

CIMG5109

Thanks to Frank again for this beer. This one kicks of the Inception Series from Nebraska Brewing. The series is designed as an experiment in their barrel aging program with small batch, limited releases. The Toasted Barn is a smoked porter aged in Colorado whiskey barrels. I don’t recall ever having a smoked, and oaked beer, so this should be interesting.

Stats:
American Porter. 5.6% ABV. Nebraska. Limited Release.

Dark brown to black color. Nice tan head.

Nice nose. Definitely has that whiskey component mixed with chocolate and vanilla. There is a hint of smoke, but I wouldn’t assume it was a smoked beer. The whiskey comes through the most here.

Mouthfeel is very nice medium body with a medium carbonation.

Whiskey and vanilla up front, then turns into the smoked porter characteristics. Chocolate, roast, and coffee mix. The finish is long with a vanilla and smoke flavor.

This is pretty tasty. They did a good job with the balance on this one, and the flavors definitely compliment one another. 90 points.
