erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 5, 2014
Black bodied, dense tan head. Very fruity, raspberry, creamy, buttermilk, roasted malts. Sticky sweetness, not very balanced. Not really for me, to be honest. Itís too sweet Iím afraid. Doesnít need the alcohol either. (On tap at Easy Tiger)

Can at Wigwam. Interesting stout overall. Tough to fit into a category for me.... must be a foreign stout thing. I think the grapes add a little of flavor and hint of sweetness/mustiness. Nice.

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 (3785) - 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.

Bottle shared by deyholla- thanks! Pours pitch black w a think brown head that dissipates to the edge. Nose is loads of malt, molasses, chocolate, booze. Taste is complex and full but balanced- tasty!
