    Interesting concept and cool bottle art, just not sure its a combo that excites me as some others. Regardless, I am excited to give it a try and I am sure I will dig it....only a question of to what degree.

    honestly, i'm usually pretty unenthusiastic about beer/wine fusion... but i feel like if anyone can make it work, the people who make saboteur are the ones.

    I didn't like it. Really grapey, almost like grape juice, hardly any porter character. The Ska stout with malbec grapes was better.

    Glad to see this thread. I hope more people who have tried it will give their opinion.

    I saw this in our liquor store today, and seriously considered it. It was $14.99, and I rarely buy bombers, especially at that price. BUT, living in Northern Wyoming, it's not common for us to see exciting new stuff. I like Odell quite a bit, but I decided to pass for now. The combo just didn't sound enticing enough for the price. It sounds interesting, I'd like to try it, but I don't know if I'd like to pay $14.99 to try it. Maybe curiosity will get the best of me and I'll grab one.

    Somewhat ironically, I walked out of the store with Odell IPA. An old favorite.

    i thought it was ok. i am not big on porters and this was an excellent porter, but i actually did not get that much grape character out of it. i really liked the oak flavors but almost wanted more and i wish it would have had some tartness to it overall as well

    the ska vinefera stout is fairly comparable i thought.

    I thought it was fantastic. Drinkability was off the charts.

    This beer is delicious, better than the elevation wine stout beer.
