According to the bartender, Town Hall has teamed up with the WineHaven Winery and Vineyard in Chisago City, MN. For this beer, WineHaven handed over some of the leftover mash from their merlot. Town Hall steeped their H2O Stout in this for about 6 months and is served out of the cask. Pours black with a thick, foamy, tan head. Aroma is very sweet for a stout. Not necessarily of any particular flavor, but just... sweet. The taste unloads a plethora of grapes and malt. The wine certainly comes out, but does not over power. Slight coffee and wood notes. Very smooth with a medium mouthfeel. Tasty, very tasty.
