This dark ruby style delicately hopped ale projects its complex malt perfectly. This beer is actually fruited directly in the fermentation stage. Not for the faint hearted!

RichardGretton (4652) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Cask@Derby Winter Beer Festival, 2010. Black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is smoked, gently roasted and slightly rich. The flavour is watery, roasted and gently bitter. Overall an average roasted and bitter beer.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
Cask. Dark brown coloured. Spicy, plumy, peppery, gingery nose appear complex at first, but outside the spices and mediocre fruit, there really is not much going on here. Very sweet palate with cakey caramel notes. Rather lifeless body make the sweetness even more clashing. Some interesting features, but the ensemble fails to renew the desire for a drink.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF. Dark chestnut colour with a thin tan film. Sweet and spicy aroma. Chocolate and spicy flavour with a bit of liquorice. Very Xmas like. A hoppy note in the background all the way through adds some interest. Pretty good stuff.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, April 2006. A difficult beer to categorise. Very dark colour with no head and not much condition. Fairly weighty mouthfeel, with plenty of strength. Slightly sour berry fruits, dark malt and sticky caramel. Also a little spicy, fruit cake element. Sweetish but there’s just a hint of hoppy bite to even things out. An interesting beer which I found quite appealing.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2007
Cask, Babington Dark Ales Festival. Straight black bodied beer with a slight head. Strong old fruit aroma. Sweetness and warm alcohol notes develop through the roast notes. A little harsh but interesting.
