Smells very dark cherry, molasses and roasted sugar. This head, lots of bubble. Very dark cherry red. High carbonation, gorgeous. Very very nicer.

I found this totally delicious. It hit my taste buds in all the right places. Thin mouthfeel and thin body, with very low carbonation and virtually no head. Aroma is toasted cocoa and stewed plums. Flavour is vanilla chocolate at the start with tangy fruit crumble and burnt sugar to follow. Ends with a short medium bitter flourish.

martinrumsam (541) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with tan head that thins aroma is malty and fruity. Taste is quite sweet. Malts chocolate and brown sugar before a little bitterness creeps in. Carbonation a touch high. Mouthfeel watery. Enjoyable hides alcohol well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2467) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2011
Surprised and a little let down to see this one pasteurised, filtered and bottled in clear bottles. Oddly it poured quite still, the cap come off with little more sound than the crimping of metal upon glass. A translucent midnight brown with a thinning cap of tan that took some rousing. There is a strong waft of kelp amongst notes of cocoa, dusty earth, stewed plums and chocolate. Mostly dry, chalky palate, good body and very minimal carbonation. A little vanilla and chocolate icecream up front before some smoky burnt wood and heavily toasted grains. Burnt stonefruit in back and just a hint of damp bitter weeds. Finish is all chocolate malts and more ashen wood. Fairly simple stuff. More sessionable than the ABV suggests giving me the impression it could pull off more at a lower alcohol content.

JohnRMurdoch (3398) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Very dark brown colour, reasonable head. Fruity caramel aroma. Fruity malt flavour. A bit watery. Doesn’t feel like a 6.6% beer.
