3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Craig. Cloudy Britten, no head. Woody, nutty, oaky aromas. Vinous, but not port as such. Chewy and a bit of cardboard there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lighter, glint of odd carbonation but no head. Rich sultana, light spice. Similar cloying vibe throughout, again rich and telling but satisfying burn. A bit more green and clinical but still thick on the roasted peanuts.
Bottle, Cheers CAGarvieUK, 2010 bottle.

The aroma is complex with great notes of malt and a little bit of roasted barley. The texture is the best part of the beer. Somewhat like really delicious syrup. The taste is complex with the port flavors contributing significantly to the usual malt. The hops is suppressed but that’s what I expect and it cuts the sweetness just enough.

Sweet malt aroma, slightly cloudy, dark amber color; I can taste the port, but not convinced that is a good thing - March Madness 2014

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 bottle from my visit to Jersey. Poured to a generic tulip glass. Pour is murky amber orange colored with a small ring of yellowish khaki head. Sweet caramel brown sugar, oak, vanilla, toffee, brandy, nuts, but of a vinous note but more of the brandy fortification here. Flavor follows with a malty caramel vanilla port wine, a bit of marshmallow, brandy, some pecans. Sone alcohol heat with a nutty vanilla finish. Yum. Mouthfeel is full bodied with low carbonation.
