5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Red mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of red wine, dark fruits, caramel, wood, vanilla, and faint alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, caramel, light nuts, vanilla, red wine, and finishing with resiny wood and light alcohol. This expression is head and shoulders above the regular Little Korkey I had bottled years before this.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
0.6l bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours an opaque black with a tiny, frothy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Very sweet, notes of honey, vanilla, strong hints of grape, cherries, other fruits. Smells fantastic. Palate: thick (but not too thick), creamy, incredibly rich, more carbonation than expected. Very pleasant. Taste: very sweet, slightly bitter, medium saltiness, not sour at all. Very complex taste, lots of fruity notes, but also a fantastic aftertaste that is a strange mixed of roasted nuts, oatmeal and caramel, with a slight hint of chocolate. Incredible ale.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(on bottle) This might be one of the best BWs I´ve had. Very complex and smooth, the mix of heavy beer and the port is present in such a fine aroma; I could snif the whole bottle dry, did I not have such a weak personality. Tart woody notes, soft with vanilla, wet leather, and fresh figs, combined with he rich maly and robust alcohol is great. Just a slight carbonation to swrl all the goodiness up. Draw a thick curtain of lacing on the glass, the taste is also hols liqouríce, some dried fruits; over al, a more heavy profile, wich the alcoholwarmth really compliments beautifully. Long and warm finish, some tobaco and more leather/port It´s simply a gem of a beer.

Tried at Woodshop 5.0. Very nice. Very sweet. Sherry oxidation is wonderful. Light booziness is well hidden. Very good.

Fantastic port barrel beer. Great to have something else than bourbon barrel. This is so much more enjoyable.
