Typical near-black appearance for a stout; very small head, but good lacing. Aroma is faint, but cocoa is present, and some of the grape juice is also. Medium-bodied, sweet, highly drinkable brew. Not quite as flavorful as I was expecting, but pleasant enough.

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.

Can I had while Jenny and I watched late 90s movie #1: There’s Something About Mary. Pours midnight black with frothy and rocky dark khaki head. Aroma has mild chocolate syrup notes, some wood, prune. Flavor is slightly nutty and oaky with dark chocolate syrup notes. Slightly vinous in the finish, although it could be the mighty power of suggestion. Either way, this is the beer Guinness should be.

Black with tan head that dies out soon. Aroma is chocolate and burgandy wine. Taste is chocolate, raisons, wine, bitter, dry, not that desirable. While it is OK it is far from the best tasting stout. Then again I am not a hugh fan of wine so maybe that is what is killing this one for me. Glad I got just the one can.

This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of roasted malt and dark fruits. Flavor similar, not.much oak, some chocolate. A bit strange.

"I really dug this, even though it was technically a month past it’s best by date. Big roasted stout, really nailed the export style well. Robust without being hot or alcoholic or the least bit cloying. Oak and dark grapes come through just a little in the finish and add a layer of compexity. Solid."

black with about a finger and a half of tan head that dissipates to the edges and leaves good lacing. aroma is roasted malt and ash. Flavor is roast, ash, dark fruit, and some chocolate. mouth feel is a little thin for a stout, with medium carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 From Beer Temple. The oak isn’t as prominent as I would have thought, the malbec, give it an interesting tartness at the end. Weird or great, I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt. Serving: Can
