COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our original ruby brown premium beer, Brodie’s Prime, brewed to export strength and bottle conditioned to create a rich, complex, strong dark ale. English Maris Otter malted barley, dark malts and a medley of English and American hops produce aromas of dark chocolate, treacle sweet flavours, roasted bitterness, a surprising fruitiness and a long dry finish.

JanEric (1108) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2015
Bottle bought at the brewery. Sark brown to black coloured, minimal head. Aroma has coffee, some choco and caramel. Dark fruits (figs, plums). Reasonalble bitterness, some alcohol, strong cacao. Nice, bitter dry finish, but maybe with less alcohol it could be better.

chinchill (2770) - South Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2015
16.9 ounce bottle. Appearance: Black body with dark brown edges capped with a beige head. Fine lacing from the semi-durable head. Smell: Dark roasted malts with hints of yeast, black licorice, and graham crackers. Taste: Strong flavored of dark and burnt malts yielding too much char but only faint smoke. Quite hoppy for an English stout. Mouthfeel: Full body. Soft, medium carbonation. Moderate heat from the alcohol. Overall: a cross between an export stout and a Black IPA.

nihtila (1473) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2015
19.2.2015. Strong wooden and vanilla aroma, almost like gasoline, chocolate, portwine. Taste has red wine, wood, vanilla, sherry, chocolate. Tastes somehow raw, unbalanced, alcohol is present. More malty backbone?

jjsint (1256) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 Keg at the Tap House, Lancaster. Dark brown with a tempting light brown head. Heavy lacing for a keg beer. Liquorice and coffee on the nose. Hints of vinegar and forest fruits. The taste is an improvement, bittersweet with a gentle bitterness buoying the flavour to the back of the throat. Bitter finish. Palette is thin for a strong beer, but the gum-numbing carbonation makes up for that. A decent beer, but is it wrong for me to expect more from a beer of this strength?

Theydon_Bois (12113) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Keg at the Tap House, Lancaster, 01/03/15. Black with a decent tan covering. Nose is spice, chocolate fudge, tar, dark fruit notes, light hop notes in the background. Taste comprises dark chocolate, spice, bitter fruit peel, hint woody, roast malt. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid enough impy, no game changer but good balance and fairly easy drinker.

MrBlueSky93 (418) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle from Beermoth, tasted at Manchester Beer & Cider Festival. Pours dark brown, no head. Aroma of Roasted malts, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, port, alcohol. Taste of initial dark fruits, then a touch of carbonation, then chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, chocolate again then marshmallow and a final kick from the abv!

Renobob (1139) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 9, 2015
Bue à la pression. Biere d'un noir profond avec fine mousse beige. Très belle apparence. Café au nez. Au palais, on sent le café, le pin avec une longue finale sur l'amère. Peu de corps.

On tap, at What’s Brewing. Some curtains occur as the dense, finger-thick light tan to beige head slides down the sides of the glass. Brown, unclear body. The aroma is roasted and chocolatey, with a barreled sourness, some dark dried fruits and citrus peel. Vinous notes. It’s full-bodied, warming and dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated. Vinous flavor with roasted malts, chocolate, dried fruits and a touch of citrus peel. Quite nice this one, but there’s too many things going on at the same time. Sure lacking balance. 141031
