look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: bottle

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.

First had: on tap at City Tap House

Listed as a "stout aged in port barrels for 18 months."

Served in a tulip glass, a dark cola brown, ruby tints around the edges, with a small cap of off-white head that receded to a wispy ringlet and left some nice stratifying lacing on the glass. I can't lie: I loved the aroma of this beer...dark malts, more sweet than roasty, thick with vanilla and dark fruits, widlflowers, candyish and spell-binding. None of the off-notes other people mentioned. I took a good whiff before every sip. Nice complexity in the taste; usually stouts and fruits are hard to successfully mix, but I think they nailed it with this beer. Slight tartness up front, cherries, plums, red wine, slight acetic twinges are countered by the smooth maltiness and big hit of vanilla and butterscotch. Like the aroma, it's a bit candyish (kind of reminds me of the effect obtained in ST Oak-Aged Pumking), which may turn some people off, but I think it works well here. Smooth, creamy, medium-bodied, and quite enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap
