Very tasty. Had the vintage 2012. Complex flavor with burned malts dark fruit and a nice mildly bitter hop finish. A bit boozy but in a nice way. Prickly soft carbonation. Do not get the port so much but that doesn?t matter. Highly recommend!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a milk chocolate brown. The aroma is a raisin and plum bomb. An absolute punch in the face with dark Christmas fruits. A fainter smell of rum and port. The flavour has a heavier rim and port presence than the aroma, and loses some of the fruit. All in all, spectacular beer. If I could drink this every day I'd be living a pretty sweet life

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Rose Red, Brugge. Pours hazy dark reddish amber with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and yeast. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of fruit and yeast and some bitter, hoppy notes and touches of barrel. Estery and bitterish aftertaste with notes of caramel. Warming alcohol presence. Well-blanced and wee heavy. Decent.

Vintage 2013. Aroma is caramel, spices, wonderful port barrel, dark fruit, booze, cherries maybe, smells great. Appearance is dark rust brown, light tan head, mostly clear. Taste is really really good. Port, spice, wood, dark fruit, booze, caramel, yowza. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, dry boozy port barrel aftertaste. Overall, I’m a big fan of this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bruges somewhere. Tawny amber colour. Looks a bit see through. Not sure what Port tastes like, so no comment. Smells richly fruitcakey, with some wine (A-ha!). Slight biscuit in the cake. Finish peters out a bit, but it’s very good.
