We let our silky smooth Oatmeal Porter undergo 10 months of barrel aging in Silver Oak Cabernet wine barrels. The Porter’s dark chocolate and coffee undertones pair perfectly with the layers of rich oak tannin and red wine complexity. This bottle is not recommended for cellaring and is ready to drink now. 2014 Bottles Released: 660

Extra from zach. Thanks man. Has a unique sweetness and some grap must flavor, works pretty well with the stout. Surprised this is only listed at 6%, body is much close to 10%.

On Draught
Pours a very dark brown with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is defiantly woody and winey with some chocolate and a nice touch of roastiness.

The flavor is fairly dry, roasty, and really heavy on read wine and oak. It’s defiantly got some chocolate character and that mingles well with the wine flavors for sure. But yeah, it’s got a really barrel forward flavor no doubt.

kind of cool.

Poured from 22oz bottle courtesy of sloth. Very creamy oatmeal stout. Vanilla notes. Choclate and thick pallete. Really like this one.

Bottle # 617 of 660. Poured into snifter. Pours a deep hazel with honey hues. Foamy and khaki colored head. Thick lacing. Aroma: sweet tarts, warmed grape juice, burnt sugar. Taste: truly complex here. a medium sour lemon-candy up front that quickly fades into cocoa dust, lightly charred oak, and finishes with a bit of sweet brown sugar. Palate: light body and very thin; lively carbo with a bitter but eventually soothing finish. Interesting beer. The porter barely comes through, but I like the depth of tarty flavor it picked up from the wine barrel. Zipline ought to do an imperial version so I can age it and see what happens.
