Bottle @ Papsø. Fairly clear, reddish brown with a white head. A bit burnt, slightly smoky, dark fruity, plum/berry aroma. Thin, cloying sweet, caramel, roasty, thin flavor. Aroma was better than the flavor.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours an almost clear dark amber with a rough off-white head. Very sweet blackcurrant aroma, hardly any roast malt though. Medium body, sweet and berryish, a little ashes but hardly any roast. No real bitterness. 140712

eeez (47) - Thatcham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Pours very dark red, no head, minimal carbonation. Aroma is of standard stout roasted malts and little else. Mouthfeel is very thin with typical roasted malts and a hint of the titular berries. Finish is largely sweet. Overall a very watery porter (not a stout by any imagination) lacking balance and depth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Cask at the Bricklayers Arms, Putney, 7th Nov 2010. Black with a line of head. Reasonably rich and smooth with good blackcurrant flavours. Some comes through on the nose but there’s a bit of flat Coke about it. Very very sweet for a stout.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival on 27 April 2011. Very dark ruby colour. Hard on the heels of the rather OTT Art Brew Orange IPA comes another rather OTT beer. Huge blackcurrant aroma. There are some roasty notes on the palate but it’s mainly more blackcurrant. Maybe could have done with being a bigger stout underneath to balance out all that blackcurrant but, OTT or not, I found this a very tasty and enjoyable beer. And Art Brew certainly can’t be accused of being stingy with the additives.
