Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle Traci brought back from her trip to Cumbria. Thanks baby! Dark brown, tan layer of head with some good stick. Full toasty wood aroma, a pinch of cocoa, raisin edge. Surprisingly acidic plumskin bite, sour raw chocolate. Soft oily palate. As a beer from a brewery I’d not heard of a week ago, this is a wonderful surprise. This is full of funk and character, and probably the most sour (apart from a few cases of infection) UK beer I’ve tried. The people who made this beer were clearly not scared of frightening off the swill lager drinkers: this is a beer for people who like to notice what’s in their glass. Man, I wish I had a few more bottles of this...

Bottled thanks to ronnie! Aroma is a sweet yet dry fruity stout with roasted barley. Taste does have hints at fruit character, but generally its just a thin weak stout, thats realitivly well balanced.

berkshirejohn (4378) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2007
500ml bottle bought in Ambleside. Reddish magohany with a milk coffee coloured head; intense aroma of sour fruit and roasted coffee beans; amooth and creamy with a dry oaty body, some fruit - but not obviously damson; crisp and dry finish with chocolate malt body. An excellent fruit stout.
