look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Pitch black. Poured an awesome 1 finger, creamy, khaki colored head. Great lacing.

S- Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, toffee, grape, slight coffee, and light vanilla. Seems like there might be some oats, too. Oak gets stronger as it warms.

T- Very nice. Caramel, chocolate, coffee, and oak hits first. Midway, these flavors are met by the grapes, which ties the flavors together wonderfully. Finish is a mix of coffee, rich chocolate, and roasted malts. Beautiful balance and an awesome mix of flavors. As refreshing as a stout could be.

M- Medium light body, which works well to compliment the flavors. Slightly drying with a light, charred aftertaste. Good crisp carbonation.

O- I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. I'm typically not a fan of grapey tasting stouts, so I wasn't expecting much. But here, the grape adds a wonderful accent and acts more as a binding agent than anything else. I would definitely have this again.

Serving type: can
