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.
