minutemat (1341) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Cask @ The Moon Under Water, Wolverhampton before watching Derren Brown. Felt the pump clip was a bit deceiving as I couldn’t detect any blackberry juice whatsoever, and I do like a bit of blackberries in my beer (Offbeat’s blackberry mild is ace). That said, this is still alright. The chocolate malts do have an influence alongside a smooth, moderately sweet easy-drinking quality.

Aroma is dry and woody. Flavour is initially bitter with a solid, tart, fruity bitterness in the finish.

gunnar (5128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours black with a huge frothy tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and red fruits. Taste is lovely sour red berries, maybe a light infection, but good anyway. Dry finish

spacecube (759) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2013
500ml bottle, pours deep brown black, very fizzy with lots of bubbles in the head, reduces to a tan lacing. Blackberries first thing to hit you in the nose, lots of lovely blackberries, chocolate malts also, nothing too complex, a solid stout with the addition of blackberries give it an extra layer of flavour. Carbonation average, medium body, a little sourness, light bitter finish.

bersek (56) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2013
Stout s příchuti (příměsi) ostružinové štávy. Zajímavá kombinace na můj vkus zde ale štáva není příliš výrazná. Jedná se ale celkem silné pivo výborné k těžkému jídlu.
