Can poured a deep dark brown w/ a large creamy tan head. Moderate sweet roasty aromas. Initial flavor is heavy sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are roasted coffee, grape juice, brown sugar, honey, and orange. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and light warmth in the finish.

Dark brown pour with medium sized fluffy beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and ripe fruit. Taste of chocolate milk, roasted malts, coffee, slightly fruity, and slightly woody and smoky. Creamy mouthfeel, medium to low carbonation, lots going on in this one, excellent beer.

DrnkMcDermott (2812) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Can, at Beercade Emporium in May. Stoutish color, but illuminated by a bit of purple. Smelly is mostly rich cocoa and roasty malt. A very roasty tasting stout, too, but tempered by some grape juice. Keeps the overall beer kind of sweet and lets the grape play pretty well, in polace of the lactose of a milk stout. Unique!

Silphium (3176) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Can via trade with brokephibroke. Deep opaque brown-black body, thin tan head. Nose of cocoa puffs, coffee bean, and tart grape. Light cocoa body, toasty, some sweet fruity elements from the grape element. Tasty but kind of thin.

12oz can. Rating #135. Dark black pour with a tan head. Light fruit with a slight roast aroma. A little woody with some roast and a pretty roasty aftertaste. (2827)

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2013
AZ Strong Beer Festival. Touch of smoke on the nose. Starts light and sweet (less sweet than a milk stout though), but some body then starts to assert itself. Fades to a light bitter-brandy-alcohol feel.

Burk. Mörk färg. Doft av kaffe, choklad och metall. Söt med smak av choklad, kaffe, frukt, bränt socker och brända kaffebönor. En svagt bitter eftersmak. Trevlig stout som jag köpt några gånger nu. Lättdrucken.

Om verkligheten är ett tillstånd som uppstår till följd av alkoholbrist är Hibernal Vinifera en mirakelmedicin. Några djupar klunkar av detta elixir och symptomen försvinner på fem röda. Slipar bort vardagens vassa kanter.

wlajwl (3935) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Aroma is dark malts, mild/medium nuttiness and a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is dark malts, medium grape juice notes, slight musty notes and a mix of sweetness, malts and slight tartness in the finish.

Can. Pours a black color with brown head. Aroma is roasty with mint and sweet grape. Taste is really good. Lots of mint, grape, and roast. This was very good.
