A - Served a dark black color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some great lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lots of port with some roasted chocolate malts, some oak, and a bit of booze. T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some oak and some strong port flavor. Through the middle, a bit more roasted flavor comes through with some more oak flavor and a bit of booze and sourness. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some port and some booze. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. I like how strong the port character is and it balances with the stout base nicely.

On tap at Drakes, pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Chocolate, coffee with wood and vinous tartness in the nose and flavor. Medium full mouthfeel.

Brown dark pour with tan head. Aroma is funky sour and chocolate. Didn’t expect sour from this but pretty good

On draft at the Barrel House. It pours dark brown with an orangy tan head of foam. The aroma is pleasantly sour with some stone fruit, cocoa and caramel. The flavor is full, rich and smooth on the palate with nice sour notes of lemony lactic acid and sweet cocoa and caramel. It finishes with some mild vinegar, funk and ash. Drakes makes a lot of these sour barrel aged stouts, but this is one of the better ones. Good stuff.
