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 (10532) - 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!

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 (17802) - 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.

ClubGonzo (5305) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2010
Sample @ Ølbutikken, Copenhagen - thanks to Tom from BrewDog. Body is black, with small, beige head. Aroma is smoke, coffee, dark chocolate and whiskey hints. Taste is a smoother version of the original Bashah, with more barrel/whisky character - lots of dark chocolate, wood and whiskey. The berries are hardly noticeable in this one, though, making it no more than a BA stout. This version is very good, but lacks the inventiveness and originality of the Highland version.

Botella. Deep dark brown colour, beige looking head. Quite pleasant aroma of roasty malt and berries with chocolate and dark fruit. Good mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, roasted malt, berries, chocolate and somec whisky. Niiice!

jesperhammer (4047) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2010
10-NOV-2010, bottle @ "Ølbutikken", thanks to Tom from Brewdog. Dark brown foam pours out of the bottle. Very fruity, the Bashah has gone duting the aging. Petty. Aging has done nothing good for the brew. The berries has added something interesting. This does seem more like a stout now... OK brew. Interesting.
