Picked this up from a great trade with Evan! Pitch black pour with a huge two finger caramel-colored head with crazy retention and great lacing. Big roasty nose with the port coming through nicely along with hints of cocoa, dark chocolate, and booze. The taste is rich and roasty with the port front and center again. Lots of espresso and dark chocolate along with hints of vanilla, oak, booze, and some interesting vinous notes. The mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and mouth coating with medium carbonation and a warming, bitter, boozey finish. Overall, didn't enjoy this as much as the bourbon version, but still very tasty, albeit a bit hot.
