Brewed in January 2013 and aged in Maryhill Winery Port barrels for 6 months. It has a dark crimson color, fruity aroma & a touch of oak.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Uber. Pours a crystal clear medium rubied amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Brown bread and young jammy wine grapes on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Weird confluence of jammy young wine grapes and crusty bread on the mid palate. These are a couple of tastes that don’t taste great together, and the port doesn’t taste like it was probably all that great on its own, either--too sugary and sharp. Weird tangy sharp finish. Not the usual Lompoc standard, but a cool experiment that certainly sounds irresistible on paper. Probably push the port idea over to a sweeter base beer next time.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber. Funny nose with an earthy herbalness with boozy red fruits. Flavor has a boozy woody red wine note with a dry earthy finish. Not my cup of tea, but it tasted unique, thats for sure.
