callmemickey (4255) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Tap at the now-defunct Boilermaker during Philly beer week 2012. Near black (at least in the dim candlelight at the bar) with a few stray suds forming a faint skim on top. Not much in the way of lacing. Off the bat, the nose is red wine, with dark fruits, cherries, berries, and a little chocolate. Moderate presence of oak. Flavor is similar with a nice sour acidity complementing what essentialy tastes like a blend of merlot and quad. Not sure how many of these I’d really want to drink given the slick, relatively low carbonation mouthfeel and lingering finish. A bit more zip would have done wonders here. Interesting nonetheless.

PhillyCraft (5757) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 On tap at Boilermaker, this is a one off blend of Tired Hands’ Guillemot and Mckenzie Dark and Stormy aged in wine barrels. Pours a deep purple black color with no head or lacing. Aromas are very vinous, oaky, dark fruits, tangy hops, cocoa powder. Taste is very sour with roasted chocolate, and funky grapes, currants. Long lasting flavor in the finish. The best brew of the night from these guys.
