Sampled at the Bistro 7th Annual Barrel Aged Festival on 11/10/2012. This stout pours a dark brown color from the tap. Small sized off white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, red wine and wood, with some tartness. A medium to full bodied stout. The malts are roasty, chocolate and coffee. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice carbonation. Lots of wood, wine and cherry flavors. The tartness seems more from the merlot than any funky stuff. Very nice beer/wine flavor mix. Excellent sipping beer. Nice tasting back to back with the Pinot She Didnt. Totally different tasting beer yet, strangely somewhat the same. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch tart.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Black in color with a thin khaki head. Definite tartness on the nose. Nice red wine, some roast, balsamic vinegar, and lots of wood. Mild coffee, a bit of alcohol, and some dark fruits. Good roast and subtle chocolate to the flavor. A bit of grass, lots of grape and red wine, some oak, and a bit of berries. Nice molasses, hints of lemon zest, and some balsamic and red wine vinegars.
