COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Damon (1993-2004). The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother - devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this imperial stout in port barrels for more than 16 months. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey - of his loyalty and his love. Share. Consider. Enjoy... Bottled 10/2013, no ABV indicated

skrip (228) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
*12/23/2013 375ml bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. A~ pitch black with some dark red around the edges and a nice thick chocolate moose like head. hardly any lacing. S~ dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, a little burnt coffee, and some really nice wine barrel funk. T~ this is surprisingly very tart but in the best possible way. sour RIS! yes! stars with fudge like milk chocolate and tons of roasted malts. coffee and oak mid pallet followed by tons of wine barrel tartness. more roasted malts linger on the after taste. M~ thick, yet very drinkable. nice carbonation as well! O~ this is a lot like the first batch of Genealogy of Morals. the wine barrel tartness is just insane! might be one of the most complex brews that has ever came out of Greensboro. its hard to say what Damon of the series is superior but that definitely comes down to personal preference with Double Barrel always ending up on top hahahaha! Port or Bourbon will definitely depend on your mood of course. great brew all around!

Poured from a bottle into a sample tulip: Pours dark brown almost black with very little tan head. Aroma of chocolate, cherries, dark fruit, roasted malt. Taste is more of the same, lots of chocolate and dark fruit coming through from the port barrel, pleasant but not cloying sweetness. Heavy body, really nice barrel aged stout.

Guruhso (817) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle on the morning after Solarium Eclipse part 3. Aroma of roasty, melasses, overriped fruits with notes of wood and alcohol. Complex. Starts heavy sweet but finish bitter with lingering alcoholic port-notes. Balanced. Fuld and creamy. A great one.

Stoned99 (1649) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
2016 vintage. 375ml bottle from brewery shared with no one. Happy first Valentines day alone to me being alone for more than a decade! Not really something to celebrate but anyway, needed a reason to pop this bottle. Since we’re talking about popping, huge pop at opening (no gushing... Phew). Aroma: big cherry port aroma, fig, spices, chocolate, woody, licorice. Huge frothy brown head leaving thick brown lacing covering all my glass. Taste and palate: medium to full body, lots of cherries and licorice again in mouth, creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation, medium high sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: this beer feels really rich. Maybe a bit too sweet for me but I really like this aroma. It’s really complex and so enjoyable. The port barrel aging really gave to this beer a new dimension with lots of cherries. Easy to drink even though it’s quite sweet.

JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2016
Huge rusty-beige head over black beer. Fruity and vegetable (if delicate) on typical, even lightly vinous acidic stout hints. Sweet-liquorice. In the finish definitely portwine. Banana, chocolate. Very well-bodied, alcoholwarming. Quite nice, even if I had preferred less liquorice in the flavour. Thanks to M & L V!
