Tasted 2009-12-26. 2009 bottle. Pours pitch black with no head. Smokey port wine aroma. Tastes like a mix of a 30 year old tawny port and a smoked porter. It works big time. Drink it not like a beer but like a dessert wine. Treat it properly, and it’s a great drink.

Plums, vanilla, chocolate, no carbonation. This was aged for over 2 years. Absolutely the best beer I have had from Port.

Black, thin head, light but complex aroma of barrel, dark chocolate, vanilla, alcohol; nice. Flavor is somewhat lighter than expected, but complex with dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, wood, and alcohol. Alcohol is just a bit harsh here, and makes it a little bit unrefined. Overall the flavor is complex and very balanced. This is an interesting and easy to sip beer. Moderate carbonation, finish stays interesting. Nice but very pricey.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Bottle at isaac newtons. Black pour with no head. Delicious thick aroma with caramel, malt and vanilla. Taste is creamy and thick with little hoppiness but a complex malt taste. Vanilla and toffee are forefront with slight Bourbon sweet booze flavor. Mouthfeel if full and inviting. I suspect this is a very similar recipe to the angels share. Superb.

Thanks to KP for this one. Black bodied. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, and whiskey. Boozy mouth, vanilla and whiskey flavors. Quite alcoholic. A little too much booze.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Exactly what it says. Bourbon is not over powering. But it does bite going down a Little. Rich deep color and beautiful head coloring. Would have again. Tap

Poured from a 375 ml bottle at Lost Abbey. Pours a dark as night black with a nice tan head. Smell is bourbon, chocolate and toasted malts. Tastes of chocolate and bourbon. Smooth. The alcohol is hidden well on this one.

on tap at the Iron abbey. Black as night and thick as molasses. Rich, deep, oily, like drinking a glass of velvet mud. Chocolate and oak are predominant, but the complexity is overwhelming. A real treat.
