COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber 2 years in a port barrel. We blended for Port of Call,but this one sort of grew on us, so we wanted to include it as well to show one side of the story.

marcus (6497) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at the Bistro BA Fest. Pours copper with a nice beige head and vinous aroma. There is a winey sour malt flavor with a very dry finish. Worked better as a blend.

nickd717 (3483) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at the Bistro -Bal Aged Fest. Nice bright reddish color with a very small tan head. Lots of port on the aroma with berries and caramel. The flavor is also port/wine heavy with oak, caramel, and dark fruits. Some vinegar. Tart with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied and a bit lacking in carbonation. Solid brew (well technically liquid, but you know).
