2012 bottle. Pours dark with a tan head that fades to a ring. Aroma is rich chocolate and bourbon with notes of wood and earth. Taste is rich velvety chocolate and bourbony goodness. Chocolate, wood, soy sauce, and bourbon frame the taste with a medium body and a nice smooth finish.

Black with brown hues and no head. Heavy fruity and whisky aroma wih raisins, light chocolate and light roastiness. Nice balance between the base beer and barrell flavours. Big body with almost no carbonation.

12.7 bottle was purchased by Dreadnaught33 in Costa Mesa, CA in February, 2013. Pours black with a decent head and great lacing. Aroma is bourbon, rich creamy stout, buttery and sweet. Flavor is creamy, buttery stout with a very prominent bourbon component. Alcohol is present, but the beer is not overly boozy. Chocolate finish.

On tap (Sept 26th). Pours dark brown with a medium tan head, some lacing. Strong sweet bourbon aroma and molasses. Full body, rich, hot and velvety. Bourbon, chocolate, and coffee flavors, almost cloyingly sweet, with a mild earthy dry finish.

Pretty damn spiffy, if I do say so myself. Delicious. Pours as dark as the week is long. Definitely reminds me of Angel’s Share. Glad I bought 6 of these! Another winner from Port.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Pours a deep, deep brown, moderate carbonation. Aroma is a smokey, roasted, vanilla influenced orgy. The flavor is a touch more intense, with an aggressive roasted/bitter finish that rounds everything out.

I most recently sampled this on tap at the patron saints party, side by sid with older vis. Both looked the same thick almost black and the older smelled less alcoholy and more coffee. The flavor was much smoother than the old v. lots of coffee, hints of vanilla molasess and bourbon, perfect palate. remind me to pick up a case next time is avaiable.

Duane shared a bottle of this with me, thanks dad! Very dark pour. Vanilla, oak, bourbon and a hint of booze in the aroma. Chocolate, bourbon, and sun-dried fruits all in the flavor. Nice warming finish. I don’t think I’ve ever had an oak aged strong ale before, but this was good!

wow probably one of the darkest poors i have ever experienced, very syrupy, excellent roasted aroma, packed with flavors that hide the 12% ABV very well, only downsides to the beer very little head, basically no carbonation, hard to come by and expensive.
