From bottle. Pours black with big brown head. Slightly fruity sherbet aroma, some chocolate. Taste is quite roastly, little chocolate and coffee, some fruitiness. Fizzy with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad, might be better out a cask

Excalibur123 (261) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 27, 2015
Presenta negro intenso con excesiva cabeza de espuma que dificulta servirla en la copa, buena retención; en nariz aromas a malta tostada, café, ligero licor y humo; en boca entrada media con amargor equilibrado, notas a madera quemada, pos gusto seco y astringente, cuerpo y carbónico medios en una stout que no es equilibrada y acaba resultando plana, sin matices reseñables.

Benzai (9897) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Dark brown color with a dark red glare coming through, average sized off-white to beige head. Aroma is a bit weird, liquorice and sweetish. Tastes sour, lightly malts, a light touch of herbs or spices. Average body and carbonation. Not good, was this intended? Don’t think so..

Erasmus_ro (1820) - Alabama, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle, BBE 01/16. Pours a dark auburn brown, almost black with a fairly small, off-white, slightly brownish head. Aroma is caramel malt, malt bread, dark syrup, dark fruit, prune. Taste is dark maltiness, dark fruits, lightly vinous, somewhat berry, light sour, gooseberry, spiciness. Surprisingly complex for a beer so light on the alcohol. Rather light with fairly high carbonation.

mR_fr0g (5232) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle at home from the chesham brewery shop. Very lively pour, mahogany brown / reddy coloured with a huge mid tan head. Quite difficult to get in the glass. Aroma is effervescent, nutty roasted malts with light berry fruit and earthy orange. Flavour is composed of dry chalky roast malts, tangy berry and harsh coffee harsh. Waaaayyy over carbonated to the point that it is painful on the tongue. Finish is big carbonic acid bite and very dry. Apart from that the flavours are pretty good.
