"Winey Dog" is Fat Dog aged in red wine barrels for 14 months. Served on-tap at Stoudts.

A: Deep dark black body with a thin tan colored head that faded extremely quickly. Only a thin remnant of the head settled to the outside with almost no lacing.

S: Oak, red wine, tannins, red grapes, oatmeal, chocolate, black patent malt.

T: Lots of red wine tannins up front with the distinct oak barrel quality too. The original Fat Dog stout qualities come in afterwards, giving some smooth chocolaty notes along with some dark roasted malts.

M: Fairly smooth and a bit creamy. Bits of carbonation bubbles scrub the palate.

This is certainly red wine forward but I really enjoyed it. I didn't expect that much barrel to come through but I'm glad I did. Fat Dog is a great base beer for these sorts of treatments.

poured from a bomber into a tulip. Pours a deep black, thin tan head. The cork smells of strong red wine, the beer has a more mild wine aroma. Flavors of red wine, meld well with mild chocolate sweetness, and light coffee bitterness. It is a full bodied sipper, light carbonation. Really enjoying the red wine ageing.

Suprised to see such a out of the box thinking from this brewery. But they seem to be turning a corner. Poured a nice dark color with a short thin head. It was suprisingly smooth with a true red wine back end. Not overly winey but complimented the complexity of the oatmeal stout.

Keep up the good work....can't wait to see more from this local brewery.
