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.

SinH4 (1065) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 4, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Black color with nice and stable tan ring. Dark malts, motor oil, sweet and not sweet at the same time, crazy viscosity. Vanilla, bourbon, etc. Just like the Old Viscosity on steroids. Hard to imagine that one can take this so far. Amazing intensity!
