omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2013
Canned, from Systembolaget. Completely black with rich beige head. Aroma of treacle and toffee. Sweet with full body and rounded, albeit syrupy mouthfeel. Thick treacle and molasses dominates, notes of metal and oak. Peppery finish withj evident alcohol. Simplistic. Don’t know why I keep trying new SKA beers, when I am constantly underwhelmed by them.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Can
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.

bhensonb (10694) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Can from LetsPour.com. Pours very dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Med body. Now I get the vinosity - coffee, chocolate and then the grape sort of stirs in all up into a very different taste. Very interesting. It finishes pretty dry, and my mouth thinks its pretty bitter. Maybe thats oak. I wouldn’t say a lot is going on in this, but I am having troubling with my sorting.

Draft at Thirsty Monk during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours red brown with a creamy, tan head. Tasty stuff with light smoked malts, burnt sugar, cocoa. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with burnt sugars, well toasted bread, chocolate. Nice.

Can poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, cocoa and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering roasty finish. Did’nt really notice any grape character.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Can @ home, picked up at 287 Liquor in Fort Collins. Pours a black appearance with a big dark brown head. Roasty burnt chocolate malty, mild coffee, light vanilla, light fruity aroma. Creamy, dark chocolate, somewhat woody, vanilla, mild dark fruity, roasty flavor. There’s a fruity character to the beer but it’s hard to detect grape per se.
