Scipio's rating

Pours a black with an average tan head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is roasted malt, grape, coffee, and a little bit of chocolate. Its a good combination, but it is more subdued. There is nothing held back in the taste, though. It is strong and bold. Lots of chocolate with a good mixture of grape. Woody flavors, a decent amount of coffee, and some vanilla undertones are here as well. It is a little on the sweet side, but not overly so. Medium in body, while the texture is thick and somewhat oily. The aftertaste is mostly chocolate with some of that appealing grape. This one is different, and more unusual that some people might not like it. I think its good. It seems that SKA makes some very interesting stouts.

Sehr angenehmer Geruch und schön runder Geschmack. Nicht zu trocken, leichte Schokonoten und einen kleinen Tick säuerlich.

[On-tap at SKA] Dark brown with a small dark tan head. Taste is fairly sweet with some dark chocolate and coffee, and some undercurrents of fruit. Alcohol is by no means overpowering, but is surprisingly present for 8%. Leaves kind of an ashy, acrid taste in the finish. Average mouthfeel, long finish. This is okay, but really does not impress.

Dark brown color with a slight off white head and decent lacing. Fruit, most noticeably the grapes, are prevalent in the nose. For me, the taste is great. Coffee and grapes; a strange combo for sure but it works. Medium bodied and some carbonation too. I thoroughly enjoyed this brew and would happily pick it up again!

Draught. This is an odd duck of a stout with some funky woodiness and wine action going on.

On tap at Taps and Caps. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is woody, chocolate, and toasted. Taste is a little vinous up front, dark chocolate, coffee, and a roasted finish.

Pours very dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is mild toasty note with some sweetness. Taste is sweet and lighter than you expect, but still has a thick base. Very nice!

Can. Dark cola color with a rocky mocha head that dissipates to lacing fairly quickly. Aroma is cocoa, roasted malt, vanilla and red wine. Taste follows but grape juice becomes more prominent. Thin sticky mouthfeel. Unique.

Burk från SB lagrad 1 år.. Svart med brunt skum. Doft av choklad och kakor. Mindre vindoft än nyare burkar. Choklad, mjölk och kaffe i smaken.

backlog 2013. skummet är fingerhögt, men försvinner rätt snabbt och lämnar en hel del på glaset, gråbrunt. Färgen är mörkröd till svart. En söt doft med tydliga örtinslag, aska, vindruvor, ingerfära, peppar. Kroppen är medium. Smaken är fruktig med fylliga toner av vindruvor och mild apelsinjuice, lätt rostad, mörk bröd, lite torr, träig och jordig/Askig maltkropp där bakom så att det nästan viker sig på tungan (intressant). Smaken är söt av frukt, och sen mer och mer torr på slutet. Efterbesken är tydlig och med karaktär av grape och en del citron.
