COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Currently the beer formerly known as O.P. is available under the shortened name of its base brew, M & M. A blend of both local whiskey and wine barrel aged Belgian-style stout, the beer has a big oak expression balanced by deep flavors of dark fruit and coconut along with a rich body. It’s a great late night or dessert beer and will age gracefully for quite some time.

So, I’m a little confused, the bottle is Sole Comp, and has M & M on the label, but the beer says "whiskey and wine barrel aged stout" - so maybe wrong label here? Bottle 219 of 250 Pours dark brown with a rim of tan foam. Smells of blackberry, oak, chocolate, some booze, some leather and dark juicy malts. Flavor is coffee, some tart plums and blackberry, some cocoa, dark chocolate syrup, some leather and oak. Medium bodied with moderated carb and a little bit too much tannin for my tastes. Nice beer, I’d drink again, somewhere between a sour stout and a stout - almost like it was lightly infected, but I think that was just the barrel coming through real strong.

Bottle drank with Adam at Apex. Pours a pure black color with a medium brown head. A big vinous red wine nose with some roast. The flavor is coffee, vanilla, light bourbon, big red wine and barrel. Really tasty. Slightly sour cherries at times.

$30 bottle at apex - Pitch black with a creamy brown head. Nose is very tannic with grape skins. There’s a bit of oak. Sweet and bits of chocolate. Taste of toasty sweet and tartness. There’s like this peach tartness with chocolate and red wine. Really interesting.

Bottle graciously shared by Hoppypocket, thanks David! Pours a very dark brown with a thin brown-ish head. Aroma is really roasty, chocolaty. Taste is fruity with a sour twist. An average amount of carbonation render it completely drinkable. Not bad at all!

Bottle (750 ml). As O.P. Shared by hoppypocket, thanks! Black with reddish reflects, medium beige head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, maple, light wine, light whiskey and light smoke. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet and really fruity (both red and dark fruits) for a Stout, roasted malt and winey notes (more than whiskey that is bared discernible). Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Weird mouthfeel that is creamy/winey/oily. Unique stout with a good amount of fruits in the taste. Not nearly as complex as the description suggest though. Interesting.
