black with about a finger and a half of tan head that dissipates to the edges and leaves good lacing. aroma is roasted malt and ash. Flavor is roast, ash, dark fruit, and some chocolate. mouth feel is a little thin for a stout, with medium carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 From Beer Temple. The oak isn’t as prominent as I would have thought, the malbec, give it an interesting tartness at the end. Weird or great, I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt. Serving: Can

Can thanks to Ben, Cheers! Thick black pour, with a thin layer of chocolate head. Aroma is sour grapes, light roast, and tartness, interesting for sure. Taste is not nearly as tart as the aroma would suggest, up front there is some light roast, towards the middle there is some tartness , finishes with a bit of anise, aftertaste is lingering light tartness with roast. Really cool beer, I thought it would be a sour stout from the aroma but not so, there is still plenty of roast and richness, mixed in with the mild tartness from the grapes.

Pretty decent stout. Dark appearance, some strange dark fruit aromas accent the roasted coffee. A bit thin but with some good chocolate aftertaste.

Can, cheers Phil! interesting, very dry, burnt, cocoa, bit of vanilla sweetness, get the grapes a bit in the nose, but not so much in the taste. Bit of spice, liquorice maybe, lots of oats. Taste is good and smooth. I like this.

12oz can--foreign stout in a can, I’ll bite. Nice pour, tan head burns off to a collar, nice lacing. Aroma is pleasant, strong smell, quite good. Taste is pretty darn good, like a stout + some other stuff, the grape juice isn’t quite as evident as I feared it would be, win. Palate is long, long, long, but good.

Good dark pour w/ a tan head that leaves minimal lacing. The aroma good & sweet. The taste has good body & is roasty w/ some sweetness to offset it. Pretty well balanced & a decent brew overall!
