Growler, courtesy GoT. Pours virtually black with a glint of dark mahogany. A small, bubbly head of dark brown foam coats the surface, sticking around for a good while. Thin, feathered bands and spots of brown lacing coat the glass well. The nose is quite vinous, showing notes of semi-sweet grapes, tawny port, and young oak, all atop a massively roasted, dark chocolate and coffee malt base. The port influence takes away some of the sharp anise edge and eases the hop bite, imparting a fruity depth that changes the character of the brew considerably. The flavor is again massively chocolatey and caramely, with sweet fig, cherries, and various dark fruits. Itís considerably sweeter than the base beer. Thick and smooth on the palate, it finishes just a bit on the sticky side. The port wood really changes everything, sweetening it up, thinning it ever so slightly, and lending incredibly fruity depth. Mighty fine stuff. †
