Dirty Old Man Imperial Rye Porter

12 oz stubbie twist top from unclejedi as part of the Good, Bad and Ugly BIF from sometime ago.
Pours with deep brownish/black with some nice ruby red highlights. Head is mocha and very well formed. Fairly short-lived, but there is a little lace and some spotty residue and collar left on the surface.
The nose has quite reserved for a barrel aged beer. I like that fact. I think that the Whiskey as opposed to the Bourbon barrels help in that regard.
Overall the beer is very light, smooth, well put together, balanced and easy drinking. My bet is that the few months of age on this are helping the beer a great deal since I often find this type of brew a bit much. Light roasted malts, rye in the very back end and a smooth, simple warm alcohol note all the way through. Not especially rich but that adds to the drinkability.
