ChrisOs Early December Tasting. Opaque black beer, good tan head. Light palate, semi dry. Smooth dark malt supports mildly tart raspberry. The malt turns creamy before the semi dry finish. Nicely joined up enjoyable fruit stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 500ml - from my dear friend MadMitch76. Consumed at home. Aroma is raspberries; grains; tar; car tyres; beachwood, oak and treacle and leather. Taste is raspberries; grains; black liquorice; roasted malt; peat and motor oil. It’s pretty thick and chewey; kinda rough on the palate. It’s a good old-fashioned stout and something for a warm log fire on cold winter nights. I’ve just done a crazy shift and this is my much-required pick-me-up! Good work!

Bootle - Raspberry syrup and bitter chocolate. Jet black with decent brown head. Soured dark malts with the raspberry peaks through. A nice tartness in the finish makes this quite nice.

Bottle at home, 20th September 2013. Pours way too fizzy for a stout, great big head, aroma is slightly metallic and raspberry. Taste is metallic, too much raspberry. An ugly drink, disappointing

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle [7.5% abv]. Opaque dark brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Intense raspberry aroma, dark malty background. Taste has initially full raspberry flavour, sweet and tart, later the malty background gains more weight with hints of dark chocolate and a touch of roast. Good.
