Svart som starkt kaffe med riktigt brunt skum. Doft: Choklad, mild fruktsallad, mörka druvor, oanvänd motorolja, lakrits. Smak: Röda äpplen, apelsin, kaffe, kakao, röda bär, blommigt.

Mora2000 (5879) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2013
On tap at the Holy Grail. Dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma has some smoke, roasted malt and chocolate malt. The flavor is similar with the welcome addition of some red wine and other dark fruit notes. As the beer warms it gets fruiter. There is also a charred character in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Vignale (2283) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Burk från SB. Riktigt mörkbrun, lågt, snabbt försvinnande skum. Vid upphällning märks en liten druvjuice doft som snart försvinner och ersätts av fruktiga och söta rostade maltdofter med vanilj och chokladkola ovanpå kaffe, russin, fikon och choklad. Smaken är relativt söt och fruktig och tillsammans med låg beska blir det ganska lättsippat. Runda lena smaker som kanske är aningen inställsamma, men rejäla och ungefär vad man förväntar sig. Druvorna märks lite förutan i frukigheten. Eftersmaken ganska kortlivad. Trevlig.

Skvader (115) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2013
Sweet and fruity aroma, which feels unusual for a stout. Begins with a decent foam which soon wears off. Rather high carb for a stout as well. Taste has subtle roastedness, hoppy notes,a bit of alcohol and the fizziness of the carbonation. General stoutish aftertaste, which is gently bitter.

Can. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet and roasted malts, vanilla, hint of dark fruits, and some light earthy notes. Good stuff.

VsXsV (2578) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Can. Opaque deep brown/black liquid with medium to big tan head. Aroma of chocolate, ash, pumpernickel, grapes, wood, raw sugar and sweet dark fruit. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of licorice, coffee, ash, pumpernickel, raw sugar, caramel, grapes and wood. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit thin for a foreign stout. Quite nice.

legion242 (2303) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2013
Poured a deep, dark, almost black with an eggshell white head. I detected none of the Malbec that I had hoped for and instead got just a mildly nice stout.

jredmond (5818) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Max? Blipp? Pours a deep black body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is rich roast, bitterness, and wood. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of roast, bitter chocolate in the back, some earthy bitter wood. I didn’t get any of the grape juice that’s a pretty interesting flavor mixture though.

olsvammel (3703) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Can from Systembolaget. Fruity with some dark malts, hard roasted bread. Similar taste with an almost smoky character. Some kind of fruity aroma which I can’t place. Nice beer.
