On-tap at Drake's Barrel House

Pours almost black with a small off-white/tan head. Definitely some vinegar. Quite a bit, in fact. Tart fruit notes such as cherry and blackberry. Maybe a bit of port. The flavor is similarly vinegary. Maybe some chocolate and roast, definitely a bit of port and fruit. Medium body and low to medium carbonation.

A - Dark black with a thin finger of chocolate colored frothy head with a bit of red. Fades slowly with some nice lacing.

S - Big roasted and burnt chocolate malts with some sour notes and some dark grape. Bit of booze comes through.

T - Big red grape and sour notes with some roasted chocolate malt in the background. Through the middle, some stronger malt character comes through when some more sourness and some oak. The finish is a mix of sour flavor, some dark grape, and some roasted chocolate that lingers.

M - Full bodied moderate carbonation. Nice and sour with some warming as it finishes.

D - Very drinkable. The port flavor is nicely balanced with the stout base beer.
