14oz tulip on tap at Final Gravity.

A: Pours near black with a dense and soft light tan head that faded into a well retained collar. Sheets of lace where left down the glass.
S: Nutty, butterscotch, light red vinous quality, smooth chocolate milkshake and flaked oatmeal creamy richness. Smells a lot like the base oatmeal stout but with more buttery oak and a hint of red wine.
T: Follows the nose but not as buttery. Base stout is creamy with oatmeal and mild chocolate. Red wine barrel is light with a candy tartness in the finish. The tartness is definitely vinous as opposed to berry. Smooth and mild flavors. Could be more sour but as it it’s a nice little twist on an already delicious oatmeal stout. The aftertaste is light and easy with flavors of mild roast.
M: Medium-full body, fluffy and non-distracting carbonation, very soft mouthfeel with hardly any tartness. The finish is drying with a touch of gritty tannins.
O: Enjoyable but needs more oomph. Pretty much their base beer with a hint of sour red wine. Good but could be much better.

Poured a really nice dark color. About a quarter inch of head.

Smell was definitely good and appropriate for a stout aged in port.

I was expecting something sour (it was listed as a sour stout on the tap list) but this was almost a bit too vinegary. I have had port aged beers before (Track 7 had a port aged beer on tap that was delicious) but this one seemed to be almost too much.

Because of the puckering taste, the mouthfeel was a bit astringent as well.
