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.

TheJestersBeer (2246) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2013
355ml can. Pours almost black, with a quick disappearing brown head. Roasted, spicy, quite fruity aroma, oak, vanilla, coffee beans, Pepsi, banana peel, licorice, wine (or am I just suggesting that?), prunes, caramel. Off-dry, full bodied, mid bitterness, creamy CO2. Roasted, spicy taste, lots of oak and licorice root, chocolate, tar, vanilla, notes of dark fruit, blackcurrants, cherries, and a quite ashy finish. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but there’s a complexity to this beer that I really like. Maybe the licorice notes actually derive from the Malbec grapes, but who can tell? The Pepsi notes in the aroma put me off a bit, though. (2013-06-03)

mzaar (2016) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2013
Burk från SB. Svart öl med stort, långvarigt oerhört vackert moccafärgat skum. Doftar mörk choklad, röda bär, citrus och rostat kaffe. Alldeles för mycket sötma i smaken. Snaker: Kaffe, mörk choklad, vanilj, röda äpplen, honung, brunt socker.

crossovert (9089) - Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Old can, hopefully no bpa. Black pour. Smell is pleasant, sweet, sugary, hint of wine. Falvor is again sweet, metallic, decent amount of oak, still bittersweet, slight grape juice.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2013
Can. Almost black colour with a light brown head. Aroma: Malty, lightly roasted, chocolate, licorice, lightly fruity. Flavor: Sweet, roasted, licorice, chocolate, raisins, a bit of wood, maybe a hint of grape juice. Not bad at all, but a bit too sweet.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Black color with small sized brownish head. The aroma is mild; there is some roasted malt, ashes, cheese (Brie). Roasted malt flavor, with some coffee; the mouthfeel is smooth and rather dry; the body seems lighter than expected; the grape added a bit of sourness, but not a fruity evidence; the alcohol can be perceived clearly.
Good smooth stout, nothing special.

dnstone (2360) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Black in color with an off white head. Spiced, roast aroma. Grape character is subtle at first but round and sweet in the finish so to speak. An interesting beer.
