ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
A - Dark black with a thin finger of chocolate colored frothy head with a bit of red. Fades slowly with some nice lacing. S - Big roasted and burnt chocolate malts with some sour notes and some dark grape. Bit of booze comes through. T - Big red grape and sour notes with some roasted chocolate malt in the background. Through the middle, some stronger malt character comes through when some more sourness and some oak. The finish is a mix of sour flavor, some dark grape, and some roasted chocolate that lingers. M - Full bodied moderate carbonation. Nice and sour with some warming as it finishes. D - Very drinkable. The port flavor is nicely balanced with the stout base beer.

joeneugs (3244) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 3, 2011
On draft at the Barrel House. It pours black with a brown head. The aroma is strong with sour wine and acetic acid vinegar. Not much roasted malt except for hints of cocoa and wood. The flavor has sweeter notes of caramel that balance the potent hit of vinegar. The finish is rather harsh.
