Another great bottle-conditioned ale, this is a stout "enriched with ruby port wine." It gives it a nice reddish tint, and is really smooth to drink. You can definitely feel that wine-like finish, which makes this a good after dinner drink. I had this after pounding down some Williamson's BBQ and wings. It would've gone nicer with a steak, but it was still pretty good. I'll be coming back to this one trying to find the perfect meal to precede this beer.
