On tap at wine 101 in wake forest. Not as sweet as I thought it would be and I was happy about that. Overall a great stout that does not overpower your tastebuds.

unclemike (2871) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2014
poured a very dark brown with a medium light brown head. Aroma of leather, meat, roasted malt, caramel, wood, with a lot of grape/fruit in the finish. Not sure what the grape addition and wood aging added, but the final product was solid. Fairly roasted and leathery up front, gives way to a more vinous note, slightly sugary finish. A solid beer.

phaleslu (9321) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at The Thirsty Monk. Pours a deep coffee brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, chocolate, earth, and dusty oak; not much of the grape juice is noticeable. Flvaor of chocolate, cola, toasted malts, earth, and burnt sugar. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Smooth and a little dusty and earthy, but the grape juice is really subtle here.

Who knew that SKA Brewery that puts out mainly lagers and IPA’s would find the time to put out a stout, but they did. Dark hue. Foamy head and lace. Chocolaty taste. Hints of cocoa and sweetness. Full-bodied. I would have liked to have seen them take this one further with more booze but it works well. Definitely a winter or a cool springtime beer.
