(This beer is a joint project between Drake's & High Water Brewing):

A blend of 50/50 porter and imperial stout, this one comes out a rich brown bordering upon black with mild thin oily tan lace. Aroma was a little rough, not the beers strong suit, but it came through with plenty of roast, but the blackberry funk is something I don't appreciate in almost any beer, and it didn't work here for me either, I guess it all evens out.

Bourbon heat on this one, but close enough to warming, once the vanilla becomes appreciable, the bourbon settles down. Brett and porter half gives it some levity you won't be used to in a beer of this color or magnitude. Interesting placement. Don't care for the port sweetness. I think the aroma, mouthfeel and taste would be 1/2 point higher if the portness of it were gone.
