Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

It is hard for me to believe that I have had Older Viscosity by Port Brewing Company twice now, out of my own cellar, and I have neglected to rate. Yesterday, Rich was over watching me brew and the Bears unfortunate loss to the Packers, and I thought nothing like the present to bring out a fine American craft beer. I had had Older Viscosity before, knew it was good, so I thought this was the perfect moment to share a bottle.
With brewing beer and watching the game myself, I really didn’t have the facilities to rate this beer. In the back of my head I thought I rated it the first time I had it but much to my dismay, I was wrong.
The only thing holding me back from really being pissed at this time is the fact that I have more left in the cellar. That doesn’t help me in terms of today’s write up nor the fact that I really wanted to let that one sit a while. Although, based on yesterdays tasting, the beer is drinking mighty fine right now.
Bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, molasses, dank earth, etc are all in the taste and nose. The dark fruit are prominent, adding quite a nice layer to the beer. Those were just some quick mental notes. Enjoy!
Useless Fact: The world’s shortest river is the “D” river in Oregon. It’s only 120 feet (37 m). It connects Devil’s lake to the nearby Pacific Ocean.
