Aroma-blackcurent Appearance-dark red nearly black, with a light coffee head Taste-dark chocolate, licorice with some sweetness, alcohol Overall- not too sure, the alcohol is very evident, itís a bit like a port in that you sort of want to sip it. Might be better with food.

Tim Webb (287) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2010
33cl bottle, said to be bottle-conditioned but not much yeast spotted. Dark, and about as rich as a 7.2% abv beer can be a few months after bottling. More complex in the cask - and deeply sensuous if cellared from the previous year. This may well be one for putting away for a couple of years somewhere cool. I will try to update this deScription a year from now when it has had time to grow.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2010
From the bottle, purs a lovely deep ruby with a decent fluffly white head that dissapates fairly quickly into thin lacing. Nose is all about the caramel and dark fruit, prunes, bit of plum, and a bit of maltiness. The palate & flavour is a bit dissapointing. the carbonation is a bit prickly & the flavours just havenít quite married together. Thereís caramel , bit of fruit, some spice, nice bit of sweetness on the finish, then a kind of dry nothingy finish. I would be really keen to lay one down & re-rate it in a year/6 months as thereís a fair bit going on here.

Leighton (15329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2010
Gravity cask at the Old Fountain. Pours clear, dark maroon-brown with a light film. Lightly sour, dark fruits in the nose, faint medicine, with toasted malts. Flavor pretty sweet, with caramel and toffee, toasty, rich malts, some light fruits, faint citrus bitters. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and malty, with brown sugar and toffee, and mild warmth. Quite good.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle at Cardinal. A clear, dark amber beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has a lot of salty beef stock, with caramel and some prunes. Quite nice, but nothing more. The flavor is better and more complex, with caramel, beef stock, dark sugars, prunes, coffee notes and a fine chocolate touch. Full body and pleasant carbonation. Bitter finish with chocolate and coffee. A very nice one, although the aroma was a bit strange. 101113
