A - Served a dark black color with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some good lace. S - Aroma is a mix of lots of port and blackberries with some roasted chocolate malts, some oak, and a bit of booze. T - Starts off with some blackberries and port with some roasted chocolate malts and some oak. Through the middle some more rich port comes through with some more roasted flavors and a touch of booze. The finish is a mix of lots of blackberry sweetness with some port, oak, and booze. M - Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and warming finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nicely balance of port and blackberry flavors with the Imperial Stout base.

8 ounce sample on tap at Toronado. The aroma on this has some stale rubber and dusty notes present. Not really enjoyable, with some chalkiness. Opaque black body with a medium light tan head, and decent lacing. Starts tart, with some Bretty and Pedio character. Becomes lightly chocolatey in the middle. Lots of dry, oaky woodiness follows. More tartness late, and scant roastiness to finish. Blegh.

Pours almost black with a dark tan head. Tartness and chocolate in the nose and flavor. Considerable vinegar adding to the tartness. Medium full mouthfeel.

On draft at the barrel house. It pours black with a tan head. I struggled with whether or not to call this a sour or an imperial stout, but the acidic character takes center stage IMO. The aroma is port, burnt wood, roasted malt and light hints of butter and stronger notes of acetic acid. The flavor is tart berries with some vinegar and caramel. Roasted malt and wood in the finish. Not bad.
