Bottle courtesy of DarkElf. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of soy sauce, oak, some bourbon. Tastes of caramel, toffee, vanilla, spicy. Mouthfeel is slick with a chocolatey finish. Strange brew.

Thanks to Drewbeerme for sharing this at Pre-DLD celebration at Flossmoor. Black wih tan head. Aroma is sweet bourbon with strong malty fruit notes, dark fruit amd cherry barrelness. Bourbon fruit flavor with sweet plum, very barrel forward. Medium, syrupy body. I can dig it, but its a little unbalanced. Thanks Andrew.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2010 Sampled from bottle at Pre-DLD! April 2008. Oh, yes. Very black and oily. Nose shows some nice fruits that in the wrong hands could make it taste like cough syrup, but not here. Instead, some nice plums and currants. A little roastiness that tends it toward a stout. A great warmer of a beer. Additional sample, Sept. 2010. With a few more non-beer geeks around trying this evil looking black tar, I got more interesting comments. Godiva Chocolate of Liqueur. Red Wine. Even Jaegermeister. Prunes. Just goes to show, itís very complex, eh?

Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 27, 2008
Thank you After4ever/Tom for this fantastic beer! itís pitch black with a delicious, creamy and lasting head. The aroma is vinous with notes of oak, vanilla, licorice and coffee. The mouthfeel is oily. The flavour is complex with notes of bourbon cask, vanilla, roasted malt, dark fruit, licorice, coffee, a bit of chocolate, preserved figs, and even if itís incredibly full-bodied itís also very smooth and harmonic. Itís really nice indeed!

desurfer (1211) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottle at Oldsmar Tap House. The flavor is loaded with sweetness and bitter hops, as well as a mild oakiness. The high alcohol content is not very noticeable. Good stuff.

Taste in a snifter at Oldsmar Tap House. Dark dark brown with flat head. Port chocolate tar and mild alcohol aroma. Port chocolate coffee brown sugar and fruityness with medium finishing bitterness. Medium-full body and low carbo. Mild alcohol finish. Extremely complex and enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 400th rating. Bottle, courtesy Tony at Oldsmar Tap House. Yikes, thanks for this treat, Tony. Pours pitch black as expected. Good head on this one. Lots and lots of lacing. Aroma is big, and port-like. Fitting that itís from Port Brewing. Caramel and bourbon work together like a dynamic duo. Raisin and licorice thrown in for good measure. Flavor is big and roasted. Caramel, and some slippery vanilla. Some hefty chocolate notes in there, too. Not sure how to classify this exactly...but itís delicious. Very soft body, making this incredibly drinkable. Very bright, too. Really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Thanks to Thaddeus for this gift. A brown to black color with a rich dark brown head. A wonderfully rich aroma with dark fruits, vanilla, and cherry. Full bodied and creamy with a warming alcohol presence. The bourbon barrels donít overwhelm the flavor. A nice bite at the finish.
