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.

Bottle. An exploding bottle that got over everything to the point I am so pissed off I shouldn’t rate this. Unfortunately, I have no pity. A: Pitch black body, thin cappuccino head (most burned off in the explosion after all), and lacing. N: Wine, cocoa, basalmic vinegar, oak, lemon rind. T: Quite sour. Not metallic but sour like a dark saison. M: Light body, fizzy carbonation, some alcohol. O: A beer jealous of 2009 Abyss. Sour and boring. It owes me.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Bill. Thanks man! Pour is slightly hazy brown with a small tan head and decent lacing. Big coffee, cocoa, nutty, light green peppers, doughy, vanilla, and earthy aroma. Taste is tangy, chocolate, vanilla, bready, light roast, and tangy with a lightly roasty finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty cool.

Pour out of 750 ml bottle, thanks to Bill! Dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of wine, whiskey, slight grass, hints of oak, sight dark fruit, grain, hints of slight coffee. Taste is a mix of oak, vanilla, grass, bourbon, wine and grape note, hints of toffee, finishing fairly bitter, slightly oaky.

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.
