harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Smells of blackcurrant. Like Ribena and blackcurrant Angel Delight. Blackcurrant vanilla in mouth. Quite pleasant but not sure where the fruit has cone from. Fine if fruitily odd

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
On gravity at the Bree Louise, London 17/3/2011. Near black in colour with a slight,off-white head. Fruity, blackcurrant aroma with some roasted malts. Sweetish flavour, with plenty more blackcurrants, cereal malts and a touch of ash in the finish. Very good.

Leighton (9847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Dark, clearish brown pour with a light film. Sweet, currant and grape nose. Definite blackcurrant character in the flavor, nice and sweet, with modest roasty malts. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. More roast, though mild, in the finish, with some sugars and lingering fruit notes. A really interesting, tasty and dynamic beer.

tommann (2487) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2010
Gravity cask at the Birmingham beer fest. Poured very dark brown with a medium head. Aroma was chocolate, roasted malt with some blackcurrant coming through at the end. Taste was blackcurrant throughout with lots of roasted malt at the end. Bit sweet in the finish.
