Pours very dark brown near black oil, very minimal heavily burnt over-roasted head. Oily consistency in the glass.

Smooth sweet aroma of port, umami-soy sauce, vanilla, dark chocolate, sweet oak, dark fruits and a touch of bourbon. Tastes follows the nose well - a lot of port, umami, dark fruit and chocolate. Very nice sweet vanilla and booze on the finish. Very vanilla forwards as it warms.

Beast of a beer, drinks like a port - kind of strange liquor. Do not pick up on nearly as much bourbon as I anticipated and hoped for, but it still works well. I anticipated this being much richer in espresso and dark chocolate considering the 2011 is the base. The PVW was significantly better

2012 was good.

2013 tasted like soy sauce!
