For the Mentats that appear in the various Fallout games, see Mentats.

Grape Mentats are a consumable item featured in Fallout 4 that can be crafted or found by the Sole Survivor.


Grape Mentats are in a small tin that says Mentats on the front. Also said to taste like codeine. It brings out the user's talkative nature, allowing better prices for trading.

Grape Mentats (1)


  • 3 can be found in Hubris Comics: one on the third floor on a desk, and two in a suitcase in the changing room on the top floor.
  • 3 can be found in the underground levels of Listening Post Bravo (accessible during the quest Blind Betrayal): one on a console on the western wall of the first room, and two more on a table right before Paladin Danse.
  • A couple can be found on the hill on the road to safety in Vault 111.


  • With their +5 CHA, Grape Mentats can give even the least-Charismatic characters a shot at passing difficult persuasive dialogue options.
  • Because Charisma in Fallout 4 affects buying and selling prices as well, the bonus provided by consuming Grape Mentats can be immense when paired up with their natural +10% boost.
    • Note, however, there is a limit to how much a price can be influenced at a vendor, and no amount of additional Charisma or Grape Mentats will drop or raise the price beyond that limit.
  • Grape Mentats can also be used by the Sole Survivor to increase the number of settlers in their settlements that have already reached their maximum settler capacity.
