KnutAlbert (6086) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle from the brewery. More sweet and sour than the other variety, the beery character is not as playful. The carbonation is not present, emaning a heavier beer. Pleasant, fine berry flavour, but not as outstanding as its broher.

37,5cl Bottle. 270/760. Thanks to J&C. Pours black with a red hew and a small off white head. Roast, coffee, ashes, berries and a bit of soy. Medium and smooth palate. Berries are a bit less integrated than in Bashah highland.

hopscotch (9160) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle… Pours black with a beige head. Berries galore in the bouquet – fruity and sweet raspberries or blackberries although it’s obviously all about the tayberries, whatever they are. Medium-bodied with gentle carbonation. Boozy, but sweet, tart and fruity. Finishes tannic, tart and sandy. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian. Thanks, Chris!

50belair (2234) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Big props to Darkguardian for coming through with yet another crazy Brewdog ale. Black pour with a small tan head. Interesting blend of somewhat peppery/spicy notes with tangy grape like flavors. I preferred the highland, but this is great too..

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle at the White Horse, London. Dark brown pour, opaque, with a red-beige head. Nose holds booze, tart raspberries (or tayberries?) and dark malts. Sweet and tart up front in the flavor, then plenty of booze and malts. Medium in body with light carbonation, plenty of warmth and some mild tartness, almost sour. Finish is sweet, with more alcohol, tayberries and mild chocolate. Perhaps some sort of Belgian funk lingering around, and some light roast. Very good beer.
