Hazy amber brown beer. Little pale tan head. Light toffee nose with a trace of tawny Port and oak barrel. Palate is light, semi dry and a little minerally. Light creamy malt with a little oak sweetness. Mild Tawny Port and toffee. Minerally crisp finish. Decent flavour but I wish it didn’t have thsi slightly tired feel.

bhensonb (13980) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. BA. WhooHa! Pours very hazy amber wth a transient head. Aroma is fruit, malt, and a light vinosity. Med body. Flavor is quite vinous, but it’s like wine diluted wth water so far as the vinosity goes. A bit of oak lurks in the back sides of the tongue. And the finish is malt and port. Weird. It fiishes dry and oaky.Quite the unusual ale.

crossovert (11106) - Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2011
500ml bottle. It pours a clear copper color with a soapy white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing. The smell is nice. It has notes of port, cocoa, dark malts, and some earthiness. The flavor is a bit bigger. The port comes through a bit more with a vinous taste along with some other fruits. There is also some vanilla and a brown ale-like base. The bitterness is low. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but it is nice and drinkable.
