5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Thanks to Scopey. Hazy amber - brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and dry with mild fine carbonation. Mild cream. Little balsamic. Tart raspberry jam. Mild lemon acid. Light finish. Tasty but over dry.

Leighton (12272) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours deep brown with a foamy beige head. The nose holds a good bit of ripe raspberry, pits, earth, rotting wood. Light sweet flavor with plenty of woody dryness, tannins, moderate acidity, slight vinegar, more earth. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Mildly acetic on the finish with more old wood, dried berries, leather, musty saddles. Not bad.

Scopey (7657) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle shared at Bruces. It pours dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet raspberry, jammy fruits, toasty, roasted malt, earth, light funk, vanilla and damp wood. The taste is tart, good mouth-pucker, raspberry, roasted malt, good hit of acidity, jam, light alcohol, earth, sherbet, raspberry pip, strawberry, wood and light whiskey with an acidic finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Smells rather nice, but it is a bit too acidic in my opinion. Nice is smaller measures.

Bottle @ The Tasting. Deep brown with a large off white head. Nose is interesting. Meaty raspberry, woody funk. Strong malty character. Sour cream and mineral. Taste is similar. Strongly acetic. Puckering finish. Sweet berry and brown sugar. Medium body, active carb.

ineedbeer (940) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Poured from a 375 ml bottle. Aroma is nice and malty with toasted bread, dark toffee, light roast and chocolate. Light raspberry aroma with medium light oak and bourbon. Pours a cloudy, dark brown with some red hues and a big, frothy, dark tan head with decent retention and moderate lacing. Flavor has a nice moderate acidity with good balanced raspberry notes. Moderate malt character with lots of toasted bread, dark toffee and light roast. Medium light bourbon character and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice beer with a nicely balanced raspberry and malt notes. Whiskey doesn’t necessarily work great, but its nice.

suprchunk (2422) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Deep toffee colored pour. Small off white head. Little bit of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit and raspberry. Acetic. Taste is the same. Very nice raspberry mixed with a sweet malt and sour bacteria.

jkwood04 (4255) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 10, 2014
375ml bottle in a teku. Pours dark brown/ruby with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of raspberries, sourness and Brett, some dark malts with notes of chocolate, oak and light notes of whiskey and vanilla, and some light spices. Flavor the same with a great blend of the dark malts, sourness, and raspberries. Average texture. Another awesome CS beer.
