RussianDragon (280) - - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle, unknown vintage. Pours an oily black with a thin beige head. Aroma is bourbon upfront, with roasted malt, bitter chocolate, a slight booziness. Flavor is massive, with emphasis on malt and bourbon. Alcohol is well hidden. Awesome. From notes 2/15/10.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2014
My first Port Brewing beer and what a way to start. Plenty of layers - cola, coffee, alcohol warm, aniseed, rich chocolate. The 10% is not particularly noticeable, partly due to the fizz keeping the palate light(ish). ($8 650ml, Best Damn Beer Store San Diego).

78samh (113) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2014
22 oz bottle poured dark and thick with lots of head. Aroma of roasty and sweet malts. Taste is awesome! Coffee, oak, vanilla, bourbon flavors dominate. Great smooth finish for being 10%.

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a fairly thick dark brown color with a large tan head on there. Nose is dangerously close to a stout; I get a fair amount of roasting in here with a tad bit of caramel to sweeten it up. Taste is somewhat thick, with a very light roasting to it that makes it a really easy drink thatís slightly bitter and extremely palatable. Really pleasant.

ZombieDuster (4) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2014 does not count
A special experience. Pours literally like used motor oil. Mouth feel is like wet silk, flavor.....well there's so much going on here it's hard to put into words. A unique beer to say the least. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aenima (234) - Askim, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2014
A complex aroma of wood, bourbon, vanilla, caramel and oak. The taste is similar. Very balanced. Maybe a little to balanced and boring?

JefVerstraete (1139) - BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from De Hopduvel, vintage 2011. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Some hints of coffee. Bitter hoppy finish. Decent beer.

Concealer (728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bomber. Clear dark reddish brown with a foamy brown head that lasts and laces. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, oak, dark fruit, plum and raisin and light vanilla notes. Flavor is the same. Full bodied, smooth with a slightly dry and bitter finish. Lingering roasted malt.
