3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. Crystal clear in the pour, and it has a light nutty-brown color with a small lacing just off-white head. Actually a bit exciting on the aroma. Lot’s of fruity tones here. It actually smells a bit like fruity bubblegum. Quite sweet, but nice. It has a oily texture in the mouth and it’s average carbonated. The taste is even more bubblegum-like, and spicy! Not hot, but more strange-spicy. Some sort of ginger-root or something? This could easily have been a fruit or spice-beer. Ends light mouthdrying in the soapy finish, next with hints of bitter coffee, licorice and even some chocolate. Interesting one, but not exceptional good. 20.07.2012

500ml bottle. Dark brown with a thick head. Strong spicey aroma with tons of damsons and plums. Taste is bitter and more spiced plums. One of my favourite bottled ales.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear ruby-brown colour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is raspberries, plums, dark cherries, hint of molasses and liquorice. Taste is sweet and rich in fruity flavours without being sickly. The fruit combination is a rather amazing and tasty mixture of raspberry, dark cherry and plum notes, slightly bitter pleasant aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very smooth, very unusual and very enjoyable brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bottle. Red cherry color and aroma with a small head. Fruity flavor of grape and plum. Slight sweetness. Strange for a strong ale but pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with a one-two finger white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, red berries, plum, almost like a fruit cider. Taste of liquorice, berry fruits, plum, malt. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and fruity. A little unbalanced, the dominant flavour seems to be liquorice which is a bit weird, probably needs more spiciness, hops. Too sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Nice dark ruddy brown in colour, and not as overly fizzy as some bottled Badgers. Sweet and fruity. Definite hints of cough syrup. A little unbalanced, needs some nice spicy hops to make it come together. Boozy and yet not satisfying, pear drops. Overall, interesting idea but a bit disappointing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark amber, medium carbonation and thick creamy head. Generic hoppy nose, slightly stale with blackcurrent hints. Fruity, very sweet, creamy taste with blackcurrent, blueberries, biscuit, hints of cherry, sultanas. Needs more bitterness, lacks a good finish. A bit cloying.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Deep amber/light brown. Aroma sweet berries and drunken morning shit. Very bad, I feel as I am right on the lavatories when smelling this :(
High carbonation, medium palate. Very sweet taste, spoiled with high artificial fructosity and cloying siropy consistence. Bad aftertaste. Spilled.
