perfect beer! lots of bourbon barrel smell and taste. maintains a strong chocolate smoothness and a strong bitter bite of bourbon. pretty good lacing for a stout of this age. absolutely delicious beer. 9.5 now and 10 with a couple more years of aging on top of this.

0.375l - 2011 Bottling, pours viscous black, nose is coconut, yeast, plum & booze. Palate is similarly layered, no burn or dominant note. Unbelievably good.

This has been one of my white whales for a long time, really glad it finally made it out to chicago. Has a strange astringent red vinegar smell, but looks great. Wow, amazingly pleasant smooth complex taste. Butterscotch, plum, nutmeg, sherry, and fig. So smooth...almost too smooth, the mouthfeel could be creamier and slightly more bourbon bite. Overall, its still amazing and worth the price if you see it.

I have been a fan of Old Viscosity for some time but had not had the chance to try the older variety. All I can say is that it was worth the wait in more ways than one. This is a very dark and strong beer that has sweet, malty flavor that is supported by the oak aging. The hops serve to mellow out the sweetness and the aroma is great. A must have!

So good! Like Bourbon County crossed with KBS. Bourbon forward with coffee and some chocolate. Nearly if not perfection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a corked pint bottle purchased at Port Brewery/Lost Abbey deep brown black with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon. Taste is roasted malted cocoa with strong alcohol burn that is totally warming while wonderful. This is one thick delicious mouth feel. Sweetness is strong but the bourbon finish makes pretty much perfect. Overall this will be in my top 10 of great brews consumed in 2013. Wished Port had not limited our buy to only one.

Pours a nice and black color. Aroma is of sweeter malts, oak, vanilla, coconut, and some bourbon. Flavor is of chocolate, oak, vanilla, malts, and some bourbon. Full bodied with a great palate. Leaves a sweeter malt and chocolate finish. Great! Just great!

On draft at Local Option in Chicago. This has to be one of the best beers I’ve ever had on draft. The aroma was intense. Full of maple, rolled oats,bourbon, brown sugar and malts. Flavor wasn’t over boozy and pretty easy to drink. ABV masked very well on this one. A real treat of a beer.
