330ml bottle. 'He doesn't look a thing like Jesus', especially sporting that port barrel there. Another coup by the Alberta import agent here, it would seem.

This beer pours a solid, light-destroying black hole, full-stop, with a skimpy thin cap of equally fizzy and creamy dark beige head, which wisps away, to its credit, in slightly more than a mere moment, leaving a bit of big buck antler lace in spots around the glass as things duly drop away.

It smells of bittersweet chocolate, treacle, well-roasted coffee beans, fleshy black fruit - cherry, plum, and fig - woody and musty red wine, a further earthy dustiness, and subtle booze twinges. The taste is more concentrated cocoa nibs, dark baking sugar, molasses, licorice, bitter espresso, dark, gritty fruit, pleasantly softened caramel, vanilla, and hot red wine barrel notes, all well integrated and making nice with each other.

The bubbles are quite understated, and even AWOL at times, the body a sticky medium-heavy weight, surprisingly smooth, and creamy by the same metric. It finishes on the sweet side, the big chocolate malt, dark sugar, licorice, and extracted barrel notes seeing little counterpoint, only in the bristling alcohol.

Like the label marketing babble essentially says, take a great thing, mess with it, and hopefully make it even better (I'm not going for their 'godlier' angle). Well, at least they haven't screwed up an already heady and deadly tasty beer, they've only added a bit of red wine barrel essence, which actually dials things back a tad, to a degree not noticeable unless you are inclined to put the two offerings side by side. And then, mi amigo, even El Jebus can't help you.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle poured into tulip 13/10/13, Torst exclusive? you can buy bottles in Alberta

A black as night with just a thumbnail of cola at the edge when tilted, the foams about as dark as I've seen and hangs around long enough to leave a couple partial rings followed by some random patches

S smells of sweet chocolate, molasses, dark coffee, sweet red vinous notes, smoke, dark chocolate covered candied cherries, prunes, faint booze but considering its 12%+ I'd say its very well concealed

T you get more port barrel then the nose, the coffee I could smell turned into burnt espresso, very dark chocolate, burnt brown sugar, raisins soaked in something I can't place, charred wood, tastes rich and complex

M silky and very thick, enough bubbles to keep it from feeling flat, just a little oily while its in your mouth and just a little grit after you swallow, not much heat and my lips are stuck together

O great stuff, rich and the port barrel adds a great deal of complexity and works well with such a big thick stout, almost like a shot of port was dumped in my glass its hard to miss the barrels influence

Drinking great today I'm not even sure if I'd want to age one but I suppose I should buy at least one more to throw under the stairs even with its massive price tag.

3.83/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Draft at Tørst in Brooklyn, NY.

Pitch black and opaque with a 1.5 finger dark mocha head that has very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Impressive for the style and high ABV.

Very vinous with a strong port barrel character along with dark fruit sweetness and dry oak that slightly overpowers the complex malt character of the base beer.  There's still a sweet and roasted malt presence with hints of burnt toast, dark cocoa and robust coffee followed by dessert-like chocolate malt sweetness.  Nice port barrel presence but I prefer the malt crush of the regular version.

Full bodied with a strong port barrel presence.  Dry and vinous with lots of toasted oak and sweet, vinous dark fruit flavor.  Lots of grape, dark cherry, currant and other dark berries along with a prominent toast oak flavor.  Underneath, there is a nice balance of roast and silky malt sweetness.  Some smoke along with burnt malt, coffee grinds, oatmeal and bitter cacoa along with sweet chocolate and lactic creaminess.  Pretty complex and the port character gives this beer another dimension but the barrel aging takes away what I like most from the base beer.  Good but not as interesting or flavorful as the regular version.

Serving type: on-tap
