FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 14, 2011
750ml bottle (ChrisO Pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" Shindig)
Sugary faro aroma. Pleasant tartness, but loads of sugar without being sticky. Simple and drinkable. Pretty good finesse, I doubt many people apart from Girardin or 3F could do something this sweet without making it slick. (And when I drank this, I didnít know it was Girardin, I only had the beer name.)

Bottled@The Chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011 "Donkey Dork Lord Edition". Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, caramel and some slight spicy notes. Flavour is sugary, wooden, mild sourness as well as some mildly tart wooden notes. Very nicely balanced and not overly sweet.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle at chrisoís Pre-GBBF Shindig í11. It pours orange-amber with a thin foamy white head . The nose is sweet caramel, pear, red apple and ice-tea. The taste is pear, tangy peach, sweet apple, ice-tea, sour lime and white sugar with some underlying sourness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. As Faros go this wasnít too bad.

Bottle at ChrisOís Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours slightly hazy, ruby-gold with a small head. Sugary nose with light dough. Slightly tangy flavor, cheap sugar notes, light caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, plenty of spare sugar. Decent.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2011
A Mes rate. At Chris Oís pre GBBF.
Mid brown colour with a good off white head. Sweaty almost cheese-like aroma. Sweet and fruity in the mouth. Lots of candy sugar, rather harsh. Erm, yeah. The bottom line is, why would you drink this when wherever you buy it, itís almost certain the Black Label would be available at the same time.
