he doesn’t know me, i could have a trunk full of chainsaws! .. . i get sweet tar and a really good dose of coconut, like lots of coconut, with very very light oak and light vanilla bean .. .
shit, this stuff is smooth as worm butt silk .. . this is absolute quality and easily the best Bridgeport item, even better than their door to door handjob service! .. . .
Now just how well do you know that freak with the basketball?
Strong, smoky aroma has a decided overtone of whisky barrel and subtle coffee and chocolate notes. It pours a rich, deep, opaque sable with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Flavor is - where to begin? Whisky and woody overtone; earthy, chocolate, coffee, molasses, licorice and nutty notes - each sip seems different. Texture has about average body and a decent amount of fizz. Lip-smacking finish has woody and smoky notes and a hint of sweetness. This one will have you "raven"! :D cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Not up to the standard of its regular Porter, it’s still a solid outing. Musty and fumey throughout, from nose to throat and beyond. Much like an Imperial Stout but with a lighter, cleaner body. dukefan (215) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Tasted on tap at Bridgeport Brewing. First, a cheat on this one. Our bartender insisted on throwing a shot of espresso into the beer. Gave a huge "pop" to this beer, and made it as aggressive a "coffee" porter as I have ever had. While not into gimmicks, I would recommend trying this one.

Bottle thanks to Mar via hannont. Black brown pour with a small tan head. NOse is boozy, port, raisins, and the wine notes come across like late harvest desert wine. Taste is pepper, dark malty, bitter, chocolate, a bit spicy. Pretty good. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2008

Velvety brown pour, huge tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of bourbon, grapes and a little oak. Cold it tastes heavily of vanilla, warmer it fades to heavy bourbon notes and milder vanilla and coffee flavors. Slightest hint of grape. One of the best aftertastes of any beer I’ve ever had, creamy and vanilla laden. Awesome label with the 3d glasses and all. BeerBunker (965) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Bottle thanks to riversideAK. Pours black with a tan head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is of smoke, chocolate, caramel, malt, oak, cherries, and booze. Taste is of malt, chocolate, oak, vanilla, and dark fruit. Has many wine characteristics. Has a lot of dark fruit to it and the finish is very dry. Thick mouthfeel. This is not much of a porter, but it is damned good. Lingering booze bite. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 1, 2008
208 Bottle - Pours an opaque brown black with a sizeable tan head...aroma is roasted wood, grain and coffee...smokey in the mouth, I didn’t get too much of either barrell, but this was a sweet, sweet Imperial Porter... hellbilly (3247) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2009
bottle by way of riversideak...
it pours with a dark brownish black body yet it is still dark orange at the edges. a soft hot cocoa colored head sits atop and leaves behind slug-like trails of lacing.
the aroma is barrel forward with the porter playing a secondary role... smoke, vinous/grapes/raisins, chocolate, scalded cream, coffee, spice, flowers and cotton candy/vanilla.
nice cuvee of flavors and balance of barrels... the palate is so soft while the finish is prickly and acidic. flavors in between of smoky wood, vanilla, dried fruit, vinous/red wine, bittersweet chocolate, barrel spice, roasted malt, coffee and a dry woody finish.
the body is on the thin side of medium but creamy carbonation and an acidic feeling more than make up for it. nice! 8/4/8/4/17/4.1
