Happy Stout Day! 8% The Hibernal Vinifera Stout is oak-aged & brewed with Malbec grape juice. This should be interesting... A dark reddish black with a thick brown head of foam. The aroma is chocolate, roastiness & a hint of grape. Nice smooth full mouthfeel, velvety chocolate with just a touch of sweet grape juice in the finish. Solid.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of raisin, dark fruits, dark chocolate and underlying roasted malts. Flavor has lots of dark grains and chocolate with backing roast, dark fruits and raisin. A touch thin in the finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3558) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Can from 287 discount liquors. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose. I get some roasted malt with maybe a soupÁon of grape. Itís all a bit muddled really. Finishes clean. Itís drinkable but itís not something Iíd order again.

AWISLguy (1420) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Can from Antioch Fine Wine. Pours black with a tan head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has molasses, oatmeal, and vanilla, with some caramel. Taste is of sweet vanilla, roast, and faint chocolate and caramel, with oatmeal. Medium-bodied. Perhaps somewhat light for a stout, and quite sweet with some alcohol. Finishes sweet with some bitterness and somewhat short. An interesting stout, perhaps it was aged a bit?
