COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every year, we celebrate our anniversary with an imperial, barrel-aged version of our flagship Black Butte Porter. Our brewers love to experiment and they always add some fun new ingredients to this beer like chilies, cranberries, figs and other such treats. This year, to celebrate 28 years of brewing, they’ve added the interesting mix of ingredients above for another multi-layered flavor experience.

DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2018
11/9/2016 -- from notes: Tap sample at Brass Tap. Nice fig fruitiness, dark chocolate, touch of light roast. Moderate-plus bittersweet, light heat. Good heavy chewy body. Little vanilla. Delicious. Rich, but great for a small sample.

Dogbrick (14389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Sample at the "Black Friday 03" tasting on 11/24/2017. Black pour with a medium foamy dark beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patches of lace on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of charred malt, cocoa, fruit and vanilla. The finish is roasty and oaky with a malt and dark fruit aftertaste. Good beer overall.

beskid (478) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle share in Lodz. Aroma is dark chocolate, sweet orange. Nicely balanced, orange is strongly present, barrel is there but in the background.

yoxik75 (474) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 21, 2017
Piana kremowa drobna zdobi szkło, kolor czarny. Aromat czekolada, praliny, wanilia, kokos, dębina, bardzo przyjemny złożony choć niezbyt intensywny. Smak o kurcze dużo się dzieje, wchodzą smaki z aromatu do tego karmel, suszone owoce rodzynki śliwka, kakao, kawa gorzka i mleczna czekolada. Świetnie gra beczka wszystkimi swoimi nutami bourbonu, tanin, wanilii, alkohol wyraźnie zaznaczony w szlachetny sznyt komponuje się w całość. Piwo o średniej słodyczy, gładkie, umiarkowanej pełni, zaznaczonym zielonym chmieleniu i goryczce, smaki grają nic nie dominuje można sączyć małymi łyczkami i doszukiwać się niuansów. Dla mnie piwo wyśmienite, perfekcyjne, Brawo WOW.

Another fantastic annual offering. Bomber pulled from the cellar. Dark chocolate pour with mild carbonation that settles out. Aroma of chocolate, booze, vanilla, orange, & peated malt. Taste mimics the aroma identically, extremely smooth, great mouthfeel. Premier barrel aged beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pdubyah (844) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 30, 2017
It is nice, very nice, 650ml bottle. Pour is lovely aroma is bitter chocolate orange. Taste is quite intense with noticeable alcohol, The layers of orange and that cocoa are lovely, giving way to a quite bitter and unfinished finish.

4.6
SebBrews (217) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - NOV 29, 2017
Pours deep brown with medium tan head. Nose is hugely complex: dark roasted malts, charred oak, caramelized orange peel, brown sugar, vanilla and discrete whiskey. And so is the taste: sweet caramels and malts upfront, doubled by scotch/bourbon-soaked oak barrel. Bittery and smokey character in the aftertaste. Low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Full bodied. Wow, just wow.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 22 oz bottle at home. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have big dark chocolate character, molasses, mild orange, dark fruits, scotch barrel, light smoke, wood, vanilla, roast, some spices to the finish, good flavor and I look forward to next year.
