Ferris (3896) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle - Slight sour blackberry and some light roast.  Jet brown with a decent brown head.  Some malty roast, slightly acidic and some yeasty notes.  Interesting.

Scopey (6714) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle thanks to James during the IoW Jolly. It pours darkest brown with a decent beige head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, earth, mild berry, light acidity and cocoa. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, toast, creaminess, berry, earthy (almost brett-like) and a touch of acidity with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Soft, easy going and very drinkable.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Cask. Smooth and dark beginning. Bramble-fruity dark hints. Hints of sourness, not too much and easy to drink. Smooth, not too sweetish. Dry with a nice bitterness. The aftertaste is smooth, dry-bitter with roasted hints, still a bit fruity. Nice.

minutemat (1550) - 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 (5226) - 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 (806) - 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.
