Leighton (14368) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle shared in London - cheers to Daniel for this one. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Rich malts in the nose, some earth, ripe fruits. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with dark fruits, berries, toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more hearty dark fruit character. Not bad overall.

MarcoDL (2965) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Black pour, off white head. Aroma of vinous tardy red fruit, coffee, caramel and licorice. Taste of caramelised malt, red wine, red fruit tart, oak, fresh anise and bitter coffee in the finish. Better than expected.

Theydon_Bois (12869) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle split at Jack The Sipper leaves for the FBI again tasting, thanks to Daniel, 14/07/15. Black topped with a decent tan covering. Nose is dark malts, dark fruit peel, chocoalte, earthy notes. Taste comprises light roast, trace of barrel, dark chocolate, molasses, light charr. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Low end of style, not a stinker but simply lacks depth.

Farewell Jack bottleshare at Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Dan. Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Airy dark malts with a little creamy sweetness. A delightful floral winey vibe, slightly tangy and tastes like white wine. Not two flavours I would think would work but they really complement each other here. very nice.

Scopey (9381) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to Daniel. It pours jet black with a small beige head. The nose is soft, salty seawater, quite rich, earthy, slated liquorice, cocoa, rocky road, candy and jammy fruits. The taste is smooth, rich roast, earthy, light ash, liquorice, vinous quality, jammy dark fruits, brown sugar and some warming alcohol through to the finish. Medium body and moderate foamy carbonation. Not a terrible amount of depth, but rather drinkable anyhow.

The_Osprey (3456) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, picked up at Kris Wines. Black, huge foamy tan head. Aroma is biscuity, some mint and wine. Body is medium, a little foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is wine, mint, basil, tangy berries, light toffee-ish malts. Finishes with some ash and a little metallic tang. Maybe lacks the depth of flavour that the style often has. Also a touch too foamy for my liking. But still pretty nice.

jackl (5816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle @ The Clerkenwell Share. Thanks to whoever brought this along. Deep brown pour with a small head. Sort of cheesy on the nose. Red fruits, wine barrel. A touch buggy. Taste of black pepper, ash. Some strawberry jam slathered toast. Burnt grain. Full body, soft carbonation. Unique.

minutemat (2577) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
330ml bottle thanks to JefVerstraete. Pours black with large tan head. Sweetish malt & vegetal aroma. Fairly fizzy, some berry fruit, liquorice and roasted malt but nothing seems to gel with some odd off-flavours coming through. Really struggled to finish this.
