330ml bottle. 'He doesn't look a thing like Jesus', especially sporting that port barrel there. Another coup by the Alberta import agent here, it would seem.

This beer pours a solid, light-destroying black hole, full-stop, with a skimpy thin cap of equally fizzy and creamy dark beige head, which wisps away, to its credit, in slightly more than a mere moment, leaving a bit of big buck antler lace in spots around the glass as things duly drop away.

It smells of bittersweet chocolate, treacle, well-roasted coffee beans, fleshy black fruit - cherry, plum, and fig - woody and musty red wine, a further earthy dustiness, and subtle booze twinges. The taste is more concentrated cocoa nibs, dark baking sugar, molasses, licorice, bitter espresso, dark, gritty fruit, pleasantly softened caramel, vanilla, and hot red wine barrel notes, all well integrated and making nice with each other.

The bubbles are quite understated, and even AWOL at times, the body a sticky medium-heavy weight, surprisingly smooth, and creamy by the same metric. It finishes on the sweet side, the big chocolate malt, dark sugar, licorice, and extracted barrel notes seeing little counterpoint, only in the bristling alcohol.

Like the label marketing babble essentially says, take a great thing, mess with it, and hopefully make it even better (I'm not going for their 'godlier' angle). Well, at least they haven't screwed up an already heady and deadly tasty beer, they've only added a bit of red wine barrel essence, which actually dials things back a tad, to a degree not noticeable unless you are inclined to put the two offerings side by side. And then, mi amigo, even El Jebus can't help you.

Even more enjoyed at Torst on-tap. Just the right almost room temperature on a warm Spring day. Dark with spider lace. Roasty, a little woodiness, and complex. Smooth drinker, a serious supper. Port in the finish, even more so towards the sediment. Cocoa and coffee.

On-tap at Tørst in NYC, served in a wine glass.

A- Pours black with a thin mocha head, leaves little lacing.

S- Lots of chocolate, molasses and dark fruit, that combine nicely with the sweet and oaky port aromas, also some roast and char. Definitely smells a bit sweeter than the regular version, although this is really nice.

T- Pretty similar to the aroma, nice flavors of chocolate, fruit, roast and molasses. The port and oak become especially noticeable towards the finish, where they provide some tasty and rich flavors.

M- Full-bodied, low-ish carbonation, has a smooth, thick feel.

O- A very tasty beer, I'm not sure I necessarily prefer this to the regular version, but I would definitely try this again, it's tasty stuff.
