Poured from the bottle into a Bruery tulip glass.

Very dark glowing garnet red, with touches of mahogany brown like body color. Faint two finger tan head, a little fizzy, but manages a real good bubbly thick collar. Creamy sense of looking body, and a touch of wine like lightness.

Whipping nose on first sniff. Large amounts of port like fruit, touches ruby character sweetness and light oaky warmth. A few touches of caramel also in the mix which makes for a nice port like tawny touch also. Hints cherry and raspberry all over, with a black forrest cake like quality but far denser and rich.

Palate is a big wonderful whopper. Large amounts of ruby like fruited port, mixing with a hint of roast and dark chocolate. Dense bodied but with a little bit of light touches in mouthfeel that slightly wash a little. German chocolate cake, but with richer darker fruit and chocolate tones, thick cocoa and blacker raspberry sensations abound. Round and full with hints of light barrel notes of wood even a touch of faint cinnamon.

Great use of a port barrel for this brew, even tastes much more drinkable than the high abv indicates. Awesome stuff.

This is a beautiful beer. Doesn't pretend not to be a big boy. Swinging redwood. It's bold. Smooth as a snail's piss flaps.
