look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a very deep and hazy brown with a big off white head. Big dark cherry nose with other dark fruits, grassy hops and bready malts. Big and boozey smelling.

Taste has a big dark fruit presence up front with an alcohol soaked cherry presence somewhere in the middle. Finishes with a mild tartness that like the bottle says, does finish like a port. Aftertaste lingers but in a very nice way.

Alcohol presence becomes more apparent as the beer warms as well as some phenolic spice on the back end. Surprisingly crisp carbonation for such a strong beer.

In comparison to maudite id have to prefer maudite. Not that this beers bad in anyway at all, I just prefer maudite, the flavors in this are more all over the place and layered then they are in maudite.

Both great beers though
