Dense, thick mouthfeel, low carobation. Port, vanilla, and chocolate meld for an great desert beer.

sepia with heavy tan ring, light oily top. Nose is chalky chocolate, port noticeable, light plum. Flavor more barrel, more developed, heavy chocolate and port front, mid is chalky and woody, finish is light cherry and more port. Rich, decadent, all the barrels present, fantastic use, blend and preservation of components.

Consumed a growler as "Indignant Imperial Stout - Angelís Envy Port Barrel" thanks to Thorpe429. Thanks! Poured like motor oil with no head to speak of. Port notes, some roasted grains. Slightly sweet. Smooth and very enjoyable.

Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is dark brown with a thin, sparse head. The aroma offers roast, oak, wine, sweet liquor, possibly brandy. Rich and full flavored. Full bodied with very low carbonation. Complex and delicious. Silky smooth on the palate with lingering barrel characteristics in the aftertaste.

Enjoyed on tap at Haymarket. Served in a 12 oz. goblet. A: Pours a pitch black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly leaving behind some splotchy lace. S: Bourbon upfront with some oak characteristics. A little heavier on the oak, but itís complemented with some roasted malts, dark chocolate and a little dark fruit. As it warms up some more port like flavors come out from the second use casks this was aged in. T: Again, bourbon is upfront and in your business upon each sip. It is very smooth though and gives way to some heavier oak, roasted malts and some milk chocolate. Slightly astringent as well as it teeters on the boozy and oaky side. A little warmth on the back end with some light port flavors as it warms up. M: Medium to heavy bodied with a medium carbonation level. Smooth and silky mouthfeel. O: This was served a little too cold and it became much better as it warmed up. The subtle dark fruit and port notes showed themselves a little more as it warmed which toned down the oak. Serving type: on-tap
