2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A slight haze to an otherwise clear amber/red colored pour. Small off-white head. Some minimal lacing. Big boozy aroma. Same booze in the mouth. A slight off-ness in the nose, but otherwise drowned out by the booze. Sweet taste. Boozy in the back as well. An all around boozy beer that doesn’t offer much else. Oh well.

Moderately sweet flavour, full bodied with a smooth carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL red and yellow label. Hazy blood orange pour. Medium white foam. Okay lace. Nose is tomato, fresh sugary fruits. Taste is spicy, soft, minerally, pie, dense sugary body. Palate is very silky and soft, thick mouthfeel, lots of sugar driven density. Nice dessert beer. Our group liked the Port BA a bit better than the Bourbon BA, though score wise they were so similar to me that I would rate them the same.
