4.65/5  rDev +20.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

1 pint 6 oz bottle:

The beer poured an excellent deep dark opaque red, almost a brown color. It had a thick and dense off, but foamy white head, which was probably 3+fingers, that had excellent retention and ultimately led to a thin cap and with a swirl you could easily get a large head back. Also some very nice lacing.

Excellent aroma, nicely balanced with perhaps a slightly more boozy sweetness aroma than anything else.

The taste...love it. Very nice, very big malt flavor with citrus and pine hops noted. Also, the beer had a breadyness taste along with some booze.

The beer had a medium to full feel to it with the exact right carbonation. The beer was smooth, very creamy and very easy to drink especially given the elevated ABV. Overall, this is an excellent beer and one that I will be heading back to the beer store for very soon. So glad that Port Brewing made it to Georgia.

4.48/5  rDev +16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy red, dark brown, with a three finger high, beige-yellow, creamy head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: A rich, full nose of butter, caramel malt, fudge, grass, raisin, plum, hoppy, resin and grape. I just love that smell!

Taste: Oily with citrus, toffee, caramel malt, creamy taste, raisin, plum, orange marmelade and dried fruit.

A full body with a good, full texture. A great carbonation and a well balanced bitterness.

Just a GREAT beer!
