Flaska från Beergium, vintage 2015(?). Näst intill kolsvart med en liten brunaktig ton, med liten krämbeige krona. Doft och smak av kola, bourbon, toffee, kandisocker, mörk malt och fatkaraktär. Fortfarande efter två år ligger bourbonen fortfarande i framkant, och fortfarande med tydlig fatkaraktär. Hur som väldigt smarrigt.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2017
(bottle, 35.5cl) Dark brown colour with a beige and short creamy layer. Moderately roasted malty and slightly nutty aroma with oaky notes of vanilla, vinous accents of dried fruits, chocolate, leather, backed by a massive amount of herbal and resiny hops. Moderately sweet and roasty bitter flavour, full bodied with a well-carbonated mf. Mildly roasted malty, nutty and boozey taste with vinous fruit character, chocolate and oaky notes; l asting sweet-bitter and slightly alcohol-burning finish. Wonderful. 25.XII.17

Little bottle: Literally black, small tanned foamy layer; very complex aroma of dried cruits, wood&vanilla, leather and port-wine; solid bitter and also sweet flavour, full, astonishingly soft; lingering dry leathery-fruity finish, vinous and chocolatey traces included. Great experience..._

pjotrapostou (411) - POLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Lekko kawowe, sporo słodyczy. Stylowo typowy mocny stout. Nieco wodniste - mogłoby być gęstsze. Słodko-beczkowe nuty na finiszu.

Beautiful barrel - vanilla aroma. Kind of toffee to dried red fruit mouth feel. Alcohol balance on spot. Average rating IMO fully justified.

Fajny profil beczkowy - typowy dla LA/PB. Słodkia, ale nie zamulające, alko niewyczuwalne, ekstremalnie pijalne. Poza tym kawa, czekolada, wanilia, trochę kokosa, suszone owoce. Solidan pozycja.

From Mar 2008 I bought this from South Bay D&L. Thanks Joey! To preface this review, I thought the Old Viscosity was damn good and a really hard act to follow. We shall see. It pours from caged and corked 12.7oz bottle... I want to say a pitch black but it's not quite there so I'll say a *very* dark brown with a very small head of foam after the pour that shrank almost immediately to a fine broken layer. Still, it has some good lacing. The smell had me grinning. Lots of bourbon in the nose(hence, some alcohol) along with fruit, chocolate, toffee, fig...I hope I'm getting it right as it may be too complex to my nose buds and I may be not able to identify everything that is going on here. Bottom line here: wonderful nose. The taste....mmmm...pretty darned amazing. Wonderful notes of bourbon, toffee, fig, more dark fruit, caramel, vanilla, roasted malt that shows up mostly in the finish, coffee, umm...wow. I'm thinking, too tasty for my glass, too tasty for my glass.(get the reference? ;^) The mouthfeel is medium, which surprised me, and the carbonation is very lightly done which fits this brew to a T. I have to shake my head about how drinkable this +12%abv brew is. The alcohol is certainly there judging by the warming I get after the swallow but that's pretty much it. No sign of it in the taste for me at all. Well done Port Brewing. You took an incredible brew in Old Viscosity and took it to new levels and still made it a very drinkable brew. F'n amazing. Get some any way you can, I say. Edit: This is the 2008 edition.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación mínima. Textura entre oleosa y cremosa. Aroma a bourbon por un tubo, chocolate y vainilla (algo de oxidación presente, también, pero se disipa, o la nariz se acostumbra, a medida que uno va bebiendo). No tan alcohólica como esperaba y, desde luego, el aroma a bourbon es una locura deliciosa. En boca hay chocolate, vainilla, caramelo, madera, bourbon. Final licoroso, con mucho bourbon, de nuevo, pero sin ser alcohólico. No se notan esos 12%, no quema lo más mínimo, no se hace difícil en ningún momento. Postgusto licoroso y a chocolate. ¿6 meses en barrica de Bourbon? Cualquiera diría más... De primeras no me sorprendió como esperaba, pero a partir del tercer o cuarto trago empecé a entender. ¡Y no es por el alcohol, eh! También me sirve para darme cuenta de que, en casos como este, no sabría diferenciar una Strong Ale de una Imperial Stout.

Fules (1424) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 23, 2017
Kicsi, tömör, tartós, barna hab, vöröses árnyalatú, fekete szín. Csokis, kávés, kakaós, aszalt gyümölcsös illatok, markáns vaníliás, whiskey hordós felhangokkal. Whiskeys, kávés, kakaóporos, csokis, vaníliás ízvilág, némi fűszeres felhanggal. Kissé száraz, testes, közepesen szénsavas, erősen keserű. Nagyon finom, intenzív ízvilágú sör.

maledictum (810) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - AUG 13, 2017
Dark brown body with tan head. Nice malty nose with caramel and plenty of bourbon. Taste of caramel, whisky, malts and bourbon. Really nice and thick. Syrupy. Nice one.
