joeneugs (3175) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
12 oz. can. It pours a dark brown/black color with a nice tan head. The aroma has dark chocolate and some roast, maybe a hint of red grape but you have to know it’s there to pick it out. Not much oak. The flavor is nice with some sweeter grape juice notes balanced intense roasted malt and dark chocolate. A little oak in the finish. Full bodied, but it goes down pretty easy. Nice graped stout.
