look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

375ml? bottle into a CS snifter

A- Deep mocha brown, thin lacing around the glass with minimal head.

S- Where do I start with this. I am getting a mash of fig, dark fruit, chocolate, toffee. So decadent. Love the smell. I like it in the same way that I like Zhukov.

T- I am getting roasted plum, dark fruits, cream, chocolate, definitive fig in this one. Normally I hate fig, but I like it in this one.

M- Rich, creamy, maybe the best attribute toward this brew. Incredibly well put together.

O- This is my first Portsmouth brew, and I am very impressed. I would not be surprised if my rating is higher than average. Very well put together brew. Tastes like a Westy 12 mixed perfectly with a top tier RIS. Cheers Mike!
