COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled 05/2013: "Imperial Stout aged in Port & Bourbon barrels Damon (1993-2004). The time spent with loved ones, no lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears and fond remembrance. Damon was our brother - devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in both Bourbon and Port Barrels for more than 2 years. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey - of his loyalty and his love. Share. Consider. Enjoy.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
375 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a minimal beige head. Aroma of burnt malts, caramel, wood and berries. Flavour is extreme with roastiness, strong port wine notes, tart wood, chocolate, some mild espresso notes and strong bourbon sweetness. Full bodied. Oily mouthfeel. Finishes long, warming, dry, vinous and strong on bourbon. The port wine notes are rather interesting here with bourbon. I haven’t tasted a combination such as this before. Beautiful.

37,5 cl bottle @ lusikka, bottled 05/2013. Thanks Jason!
Aroma is rather mellow with bourbon tones, vanilla and some porto. Flavour is strong on porto, alcohol, licorice and mellow but odd blue cheese aromas. Warming alcohol and woody tones in the finish. The alcohol tones are quite strong and at the limit – they disturb me on some sips. But when they don’t, this feels like a nice slow sipper, porto is strong with this one.

Damon trio. Thanks to ygtbsm94 for providing this awesome bottle. The beer is dark brown with a faint hint of a brown collar. The aroma offers port, chocolate, red wine, oak. Delicious flavor. Complex and refined. Fantastic beer. Nearly absent carbonation, soft on the palate. A delightful beer to sip. What a treat.
