A dark rich beer that shows glints of red. The taste is clean, slightly sharp with a hint of blackcurrant.

gunnar (6715) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle from myBrewerytap.com. Pours dark brown with a big spongy light tanned head. Aroma is herbal malty, with blackcurrant and minty notes. Taste is dry resiny hops,blackcurrant and herbs in the front seat. Lingering herbal and resiny, light sweet nutty malt mix. Very good, sharp and intriguing.

On tap somwhere! Clear dark amber beer. Light dry palate. Full on flavours! Noticeably hoppy but with black tea that would be served in the Far East - aromatic and floral. Finishes dry. Unusual and bears some resemblance to the better Black IPAs.

stravale (2543) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 7, 2012
Cask @ Bandstand Bar, Nairn 050612
Dark brown, frothy off white tan head, good lacing
Aroma - roasted malts, soft cocoa, dark malts, quite a lot of cocoa, but not a lot on the nose
Taste - roasted malts, dark fruity malts, dark caramel malts, bitter fruity hops, lot of flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium body, soft bitter roast palate. Finish - bit over-lingering bitter roast palate
Overall - Quite a good pint, but it didn’t impress me that much

jamestulloch (2327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Aroma: Berries, coffee beans, light fruity hints and floral hops.

Appearance: Dark ruby body with a huge lasting tan head. Lots of sticky lacing.

Taste: Sweet chocolatey malt with a fruity, bittering hop presence - really well balanced. Liquorice, plum and orange notes. A delicious beer.

Palate: Medium body with a smooth, slightly oily palate. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Another gem from Fyne Ales - certainly one of their best beers. Good in bottle, excellent in cask.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Pours dark brown with an off white head. Medium body. Roasted coffe aroma, some licorice, wet wood. Tastes of coffee, some black pepper in the aftertaste. Tried with mom and dad in Brighton after picking these bottles up in Canterbury in 2012. Tried again at BBF 2013.

Yum. Tastes gorgeous, but it doesn’t linger for long. I could drink lots through and am looking forward to more from Fyne :)
