COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Outskirts is an Imperial Porter aged in Bourbon Barrels. Outskirts presents itself on the nose with aromas of star anise and the unmistakable vanilla-wood-alcohol punch of the bourbon barrels in which it was aged. Semi-sweet chocolate, treacle and a trace of dried blackberry flavors combine with vanilla and leather on the palate to deftly hide it’s 14.5% alcohol content. Viscous but never cloying, soft wood tannins and alcohol spiciness balance Outskirts’ formidable body.

dnstone (4034) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 25, 2018
Pours black with a tan head, like dirty motor oil. Has a rich coconuty, caramel, and chocolate aroma and taste. Quite sticky. Notes: on tap

Pour from a bottle shared. Cheers Dylan. Pours a pitch black with a small bit of head. Big rich, bourbon-forward nose with cacao nib, coffee and caramel toffee chews. Definitely boozy on the palate, but more cacao, chocolate, tobacco and faint roasted malt smoke. As it warms up lots of fig, plum and prune notes start to rear their head. Surprisingly drinkable with the heat from the 14.5%. Lingering cacao nib, coffee, oak, fig and bourbon. A big, bold beer.

Imperialny porter leżakowany w beczkach po bourbonie. Uwarzony w ramach 4 edycji El Catador Club. W aromacie mnóstwo mlecznej czekolady z wyraźnymi nutami przyprawowymi, piękne akcenty waniliowe. Wyraźnie wyczuwalna melasa, ponadto stawiam na słody żytnie, co czyni piwo lekko pikantnymi. Po ogrzaniu wychodzą piękne ciemne owoce oraz nieco beczkowate-drzewne nuty. Pije się jak imperialnego stouta. Profil piwa bardzo zbliżony do Darkstar November z Bottle Logic, choć to inne style. Ciało pełne, aksamitne, gładkie, mega wyklejające, takie lekko likierowate. 14 ABV zupełnie niewyczuwalne. Z dodatkowych rzeczy umilających degustację, niezwykle zbita, beżowa piana dosyć długo utrzymująca się. Jedne z lepszych imperialnych porterów jakie piłem. Ma swój charakter i klasę. Nie jest jakoś przeładowany "dodatkami", ale za to dopracowany do perfekcji. WIelkie WOW i ciesze się, że mam jeszcze jedną butelkę.

750ml bottle pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is big sweetness bourbon barrel vanilla molasses and brown sugar. Taste is more of the booze malts bourbon barrel vanilla and lots of sugar.

phaleslu (11002) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2017
750 ml bottle shared by seeswo - thanks again, Chris! Pours an opaque brown, deep and dark, with a tan head that settles into a good-sized ring with a filmy inner ring. Loads of chocolate and dark fruits here. Cocoa, dark chocolate, fudge, raisins, dates, oak, vanilla, and residual sugars. Tannins, molasses, brown sugar. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, rich, coating, slightly warming mouthfeel. Decadent. I’d have guessed the brewery blindfolded.

Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2017
Thanks to seeswo. Deep dark pour like syrup. Ring of brown bubbles. Loads of chocolate, light oxidation, raisins, a little soy. Alcohol is not hidden - viscous but not thick if that makes sense. As it warms there are hints of coconut and graham cracker. Exceptionally sweet, nice and warming. Slick oily texture. Long brown sugar and caramel in the finish. Nice beer!

JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2017
Bottle shared by a friend. Black pour with a medium light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, bourbon and vanilla. Smells like boozy brownies. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a bourbon flavor that has a slight oxidation.
