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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

rdixon77 (3020) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Holy moly...tasty. Big ashy CC roastiness with a good cut of sweet chocolate and bourbon and vanilla cream oak. The booze heat is mild but present. Definitely a sipper, but just about perfectly balanced. Delicious.

1/3/17. 750mL bottle from Catador club shared with rdixon77 and a few other friends and family. Black pour with a nice tan head. Great aroma, that patented ashy CCB roasted malt kick, dark chocolates, vanilla, oak, some smooth chocolates as well, coffee, caramel, dark fruits, whiskey. Great flavor, nice barrel character, vanilla, fudge, decadent fudge, but cut nicely with roasted malts, ashy, char, leather, more chocolate, hints of coffee and caramel, dark fruits. Tasty!
