Definitely not your Dad’s Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale that’s as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils.

Very interesting. When first released very over the top maltiness and alcohol. Coating like a stout lingering like a barleywine. Made an apearance 6 months later after being spiked with a bit of rum at the Real ale festival and was all of the above only more mature with a dark sweetness akin to WWS. and now a year from its premire still exibits vinious malts and alcohol in the nose. Mouthfeel has thinned out a touch. Strang but interesting dust/ new snow charactor is starting to move in with a raison tartness and a certain dryness in the finish. I think this one is just getting past its prime.

I bought this bottle from South Bay Drugs & Liquors. Thanks Joey!

Another adventurous dive into the world of Port Brewing. Here goes:

A very nice pour with about an inch of foam and apitch black colour. The foam quickly recedes and there's not much lacing going on.

Lots of dark fruit in the smell with good side notes of toffee and burnt malt.

Taste wise, the first thing I notice is the fruit... Plum and dark cherries, followed by raisins, toffee, a touch of chocolate, vanilla, and there's that bourbon, though I don't think it's going to take center stage after more sips but I could be wrong.

Further sips in and the bourbon just hangs around in the background and that's fine by me as the fruitiness of this Strong Ale has all my attention and deservedly so. I notice the cherries the most when I swish the beer in my mouth and dog gone it, I'm doing that more often than I normally do with a beer. Stop it, Bill! ;^)

I'd say it has a medium mouthfeel and the carbonation is lightly done and it finishes with a slight tartness(from the hops?) This is a high quality and very complex brew and is pretty darned drinkable despite the 10%abv(read: hidden very well) I'd gladly drink it again. The only thing I'm wondering is...how is the Older Viscosity going to stack up against this? I think it will be a tough act to follow..

Looks great with two fingers of tan head on a black body.
Aroma leads with milk and dark chocolate, then licorice and coffee round it out.
Taste is surprisingly mellow. Good flavors of chocolate sweetness and mild coffee bitter, hint of licorice. This bottle has been resting for couple years now.
Texture is smooth and soft.
Outstanding brew.

September 2017 - Dusty 1 (American) pint bottle at home in Richmond as 'Port Brewing Old Viscosity', 10%, a few years old - not sure how old exactly but could be as old as 2010. Watching Ulster v Scarlets. Opaque black with a huge dense foamy brown head. Aroma is creamy plain chocolate, deeply chocolatey, chocolate hobnobs. Body is rounded with tingly carbonation. Taste is dark chocolate, spicy, earthy, burnt biscuits, nice floral hop. Very drinkable for the ABV, and has held up well with age (probably due to the level of hops). Dangerous. I liked it more and more the more drunk it made me. (8-4-8-4-16=4.0)

Black color, large brown head. Light roasted aromas with dark fruit, iron, syrup, oak, malt and smoked meat. Roasted and bitter taste with alcohol, smoke, wood, earth, smoked meat and hops. Medium bitter finish. Aftertaste reminds me of a black IPA.

Kiezmar (845) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Butelka. Pusto w aromacie, nieco karmelu i klepki. W smaku trochę dębiny, nieco torfowe (?!).

Fules (1394) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2017
(542 nap) Hatalmas, szivacsos, sokáig kitartó barna hab, egészen sötétbarna szín. Csokis, kakaós, aszalt gyümölcsös illatok. Fekete csokis, kakaóporos, kávés ízvilág, enyhe aszaltszilvás aromával és markáns fűszeres vonással. Nehézsúlyú versenyző, enyhe szénsavtartalommal és erős keserűvel. Finom, de nekem túl erős a pörkölésből eredő keserűje.

Pours a dark body with a beige head. Aroma of syrup and plums. Malty taste with tones of bread. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Najpierw zacznę od wad. Metalicznosc wyraźna, dosyć wkurzająca. Alkohol dosyć wyczuwalny ale nie spirytusowy. Teraz plusy. Wali w czerep! W taki pozytywny sposób. Ostre, karmelowe, słodowe. Rozgrzewa. Sporo dojrzałych owoców.Charakterne. Ciekawe piwo, albo polubisz albo odrzuci.
