Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2012
In bottle. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of cherries, roasty malt, dark chocolate and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation, CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Mild bitterness and lingering dark chocolate and cherries. Reminds me of liquid Cherry Ripes. Superb!

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Sample at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 28th Oct 2010 (Brewdog Abstrakt 04 launch). 25kg of tayberries used for every 100L of beer apparently. Black with a small reddish cream head. Superb nose of dark chocolate, tayberry/raspberry panacotta. Flavour similar to standard Bashah but with added woodiness.

No carbonation what so ever. But this has more berry aroma and almost a sour edge to it. You also get some anise and chocolate here and not so much hop presence. A fun beer, but i would call it a Fruit Beer.

JohnRMurdoch (3975) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Fruity aniseed aroma. Almost black colour, not much head & a bit flat. Strong sour fruity flavour. Oily with sour aftertaste. Not my thing.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Ooh I liked this one. Poured pretty much black with a thin short lasting tan head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Flavour is whiskey ice cream, some fruit, wood, little licorice. Long dry bitter finish. The American influence comes through. I like countries having a bash at another countries style. Bursting with awesomeness.

sunevdj (3542) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle @ Ølbutikken. Pours an opaque black with a diminishing brown head. Sweet with some dryness. Fruity with aromas of raspberries. Also hints of vanilla and tobacco. Full bodied. Medium to high carbonation.

Blairgus (3567) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 3 May 2011, bottle. black or very dark brown. amazing nose! alcohol and blue fruit. full body and very fizzy. stout background but fruit is dominant in flavour and in sugars. sugar is a fruit sugar not an alcohol or rich malty sweetness. there is a fruit tartness as well. nice but too tart. (original rating = 6, 3, 8, 3, 15 = 3.5) dark brown, ca’t see through it great chocolate smell w/ really strong blue fruit (don’t know what a tayberry is) smell full body and mostly flat very sweet and syrupy. i couldn’t drink much of this b/c it is so sweet but boy is it great. Amazing!
