If you don’t read the can close enough, you can buy a grape stout thinking its just a stout. I don’t know why anyone would do this. It pours nearly black with a brown head, darker than most stouts. Smells good. Thin mouthfeel. At the first taste, it’s not too bad, but the finishing taste begins to get tarter and tarter, more wine-like.

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.

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.
