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 (2455) - 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 (2270) - 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 (5673) - 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 (3578) - 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.

tourtrappist (35) - SWEDEN - APR 10, 2013
Another great can from Ska Brewing with lots of dark bread, coffee and dry bitter chocolate. Takes off with sweet caramelmalt and develops into a more dark, dry and bitterhoppy aftertaste.
