4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is the only beer in my experience that comes close to the fullness and intensely luscious aroma of G.I. Bourbon County Stout. Aroma is rounded out green oak with rum and bourbon depth and sweetness, along with a backdrop of soy sauce and yeasty sweet chili sauce. The flavor is more subdued most of the way with the malts dominating in a melange of balanced earthy, sweet, smokey goodness. The finish is purely of the barrel with a singed distilled spirit, alcoholic note drying out the experience but leaving a beautiful lip smacking residue. The body is the lightest thing about the beer and may make it more approachable for some. There is a slickness to the mouthfeel that reinforces the richness of the experience. Excellent. Thank you Port Brewing. 2012 small bottle.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big woody boozy aroma with chocolate mixed in. Black with thin head. Warming, whisky, peat, bitter dark chocolate. Heavy as shit. I guess sludge was the goal right? It really does look like motor oil. Palate is fine rosey whisky. Pixies blasting on the tv, sippin this, nice sometimes to drink a long baby like this instead of a session brew. Even if it is summer this one can be enjoyed anytime. It’s been so long since I’ve had plain "Old" but I’d say this is just as good with a twist nevertheless. Bomb.

Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Nice bourbon and roasted malt on the nose. Big bourbon on the tongue along with sweet malt. Pairs nicely together. Hides the booze well. Nice finish. Excellent imperial stout.

T.J. Thanks for the share of this 375 ml bottle with no bottling date. The color is a opaque black, thin lasting head. Aroma is okay bourbon, chocolate, and earthy hints.
Flavor is really damn nice. The bourbon is SO nicely integrated into the rich malty backbone. Body is full and the bourbon is smooth with a very minor alcohol burn after the sip. Holy hell, why did I wait this long to try this?? This is amazing. Nobody knows how long this sat around but no matter, totally pimping.
