look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Smell: sweet orange zest with sugary notes and molasses inside of oak barrels
Taste: intense brown sugar/ molasses, sweet cream, orange zest and a somewhat sweet scotch-like taste throughout the entirety of this drink
This beer is highly recommended for those who are trying to explore the quadruple world of beer and, more specifically, people who want to venture into Belgium.
Pairings: extra sharp cheddar, hamburgers, tri-tip, and smoked fish are very good with this beer; don't forget the black grapes

750 ml bottle purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper, $11.99
Another powerful pop when I removed the cage and cork. No spillage.
Lots of foam so I'm waiting for that to settle down. Okay, it has a deep brown kind of mahogany colour to it, looks to be clear. The foam is off white bordering on tan. I see nice lacing.
I smell some sweet goodness. Caramel malt that fades into a port like nose that also has some fruity aromas going on. That's not all; I get some notes of chocolate and some cherries. Some alcohol as well but it's pretty well masked.
The taste is less sweet than I would have guessed. A port like flavour greets me at the door followed by toffee, figs, some cherries that add a mere hint of tartness. I also get more than a hint of the abv...lots of warming ensues. I wish more of the Port stood out but this is certainly tasty enough without that happening.
Despite the big pop on opening and the great looking foam I see after every pour, I'd call the carbonation on the near delicate side.
This is a beer and brewery that I've never even heard about, probably saw it on the shelves in FT Collins but never noticed, but I really like this one a lot. It has a comforting feel to it.
