Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours cloudy brown with a modest head. Slightly sour, blackcurrant nose. Flavor is lightly sweet and underscored by further sourness. Also notes of dirt, roasted malts and berries. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. The sour notes, presumably from the blackcurrant, throw me off a bit.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 500ml bottle from the brewery. Bottled on 30 June 2008. Drunk on 28 July 2011. Don’t know whether they have deliberately aged this but it is still on sale in the shop. Deep ruby colour. Thin beige head. Decent condition. Slightly woody fruit aroma. More tart fruit in the flavour. Aged quite well.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Chris.
Black brown with a thin off white head and some lacing. Smells slightly infected with some blackcurrant showing. Strange flavour. Lots of berries, slight sourness, faint floral notes. Quite juicy, feels nice on the palate. Strange lemon notes too. Some underlying malty sweetness, a little hit of caramel and more juicy blackcurrant in the finish. Drinks more like a sour fruit beer than a stout. And erm... where is the alcohol? It drinks like 4%, nothing like 8.2% You can always get some fun from a Bare Arts beer.
