I was very excited to try this one and got lucky at the Great American Beer Festival this year in Denver. The last Port beer I tried was Cuvee de Tomme at Michael Jackson's University of Pennsylvania Dinner a couple of years ago.
This American Strong Ale pours a dark brown with a slight ruby colored highlight. A thin, one finger tan head.
Aromas of sweet malt and alcohol dominate. Followed by some oakey, woody notes. Also some chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Also some dark fruit.
Taste is oak/wood and alcohol upfront. Melded nicely and not overwhelming. Followed by some chocolate, vanilla and dark fruit flavors. Maybe even a hint of rum.
Mouthfeel is very full and creamy with a wonderfully strong alcohol warmth.
Overall an amazing beer! This is one you would consider as a brewing achievement. Pushing the envelope of style while still incredibly tasty.
