Theydon_Bois (7895) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle at Rilesters, cheers Steve, 08/07/13. Dark mahogony brown with a good sized light tan head that retains well. Nose is light roasted malt, tarte berry fruits, soap. Taste comprises soured blackurrants and berry fruits, light roast malt, touch of chocolate. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish. Ok fruity kind of a stout.

Deep red - amber beer. Short lived pale tan head. Smooth but pretty dry palate. Roasty dark malt and sweet blackcurrant. Sounds great but it’s not! The sweetness is very artificial tasting and clashes horribly with the roast malt. Completing the disaster is a very dry finish and a horrible saccharine aftertaste. Smoke and coffee as well. Grim!

DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Hand pulled at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Great pub - proper homely, friendly and warm. This beer wasn’t quite so good as the pub: drinkable, in offensive - yes, but rather thin, a bit too sweet and lacking in Stout qualities (i.e. no roast, no body). As my colleage Chris pointed out, this was more like a sweet Mild.

Bottle. Dark brown with an off white head. Aromas are chocolate, molasses and blackberry with earthy and medicinal notes. Flavours are sweet and fruity with berries and chocolate malts. Herbal with soft spices. A nice fruity, winter brew.

OleR (4752) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
Shared bottle @Papsoe’s. Pours a dark amber with red hue. Low beige top. Subtle berry aroma. Some toasted malts in the back. Random berry fruity flavor. Hard to pin-point the black currants. Light roast, some dark caramel and a vague bitterness underneath. Less than medium full. Weak berry fruity finish. [14.07.12]

imdownthepub (9953) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle conditioned at Standing Room Only, Cheddar Gorge, Somerset. Dark tawny with tan head. Initially quite a heavy fruitiness to this with a harsh aspartame, sweetener type flavour. This eased off after a while, the fruitiness became a little more natural and the body developed a liquorice character. It remained sweet but more drinkable. Reasonable.

Steasy66 (837) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Taste at Papsoe’s Brown, doesnt look like a stout. Licorice nose. Sweet and scottish ale like flavor, bit of licorice, not much currant. Decent consistency.

humlelala (943) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2012
(sample at Papsø’s; courtesy of Papsø/madmitch76) Pours a clear copper with little, white head and lace. Aroma is dominantly blackcurrant with a slight, roasted malt and a dominant, blackcurrant note. Oily texture, soft carbonation, light body and a sweet, fruity note. Taste is sweet and fruity.
