3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear dark red with medium head. Colour is similar with blackcurrant juice. Aroma feels a little bit old, some sourness and hops on side. Taste is quite dry, some sweetness, malts, grapes, some bitterness. After brings up some hops. Easy to drink good beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 Bottle from some corner shop or other, fair play to them for carrying this... Dark brown with a hint of ruby. Translucent with lots of forced carbonation. Toffee, caramel and a trace of mango. Sweet and slightly smoky taste, which finishes quite bitter. Salted caramel on the finish. Not bad but a bit artificial-tasting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from Tesco, Dragonville, Durham.
Pours dark ruby brown with a foamy, light tan head and moderate carbonation. It smells gassy in the way that pasteurised beers do while there’s also some caramel malts to be found in the nose. Smoke hits the palate first but gives was to robust malt character than finishes pretty sweet with caramel and toffee flavours. Maybe a little too sweet for my liking but on the whole it’s a solid and enjoyable strong ale.

Bottle at Põrgu in Tallinn. Reddish amber colour, small light beige head. Wow, cranberries! Such nice cranberry jam aroma, albeit a bit metallic. Flavour’s similar, sweet and malty, with a dry bitter finish. Body lighter side of medium, yet kind of chewy, carbonation mild. Very pleasant.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2015 From bottle; pours a deep dark brownish black with nice head and shows red when held up to the light. Malty but not as rich/ sweet as a beer like Pride. Has a little coffee. Bottle seems to have traveled well; i dont recall it being better in UK

It is a typical black beer between a normal one and a porter. We can feel this side bitter with the malt that it is grilled. The carbonation is average and the colour is a classical black.
