Grabbed myself a Snifter on tap release day at the Brewery, so about as new and fresh as it gets. Wonder how this would do with some time?
Apprearance - Dark, oily, brown 1.5 finger tan head. Receded somewhat quickly but some nice lacing on the glass
Smell - Caramel, dark fruits, Toffee, raisins, Chocolate
Taste - Hard to tell served cold, First was some sweetness of the caramel and chocolate then the dark fruits, raisin, toffee and molasses blends all together with a faint hit of alcahol but damn does she OR he hide it well. Easy to drink but enjoyable and still a social sipper. That should be a class of beer???
Mouthfeel - I find it to be quite nice, a bit oily and chewy and coated the mouth nicely. It invited me for another sip right away. I hadn't felt that in quite some time from a beer. Warming but not boozy. Again she OR HE hides "their" strength well.
Overall - Be aware...and respect the new Brewers Beer. He made a New beer people SHOULD hype and COULD hype as in years past. Excellent beer for the style. Well done...

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!
