Cask at BBF13. Weak fruity aroma. Black colour, seems cloudy. Stable light brown head. The flavour is sour with a sort of fruity winegum note to it. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel. Tastes OK, but

Share with the wife. She drank it all, not as rich as it could be she said. Bit like me I thought, but I’m happy with what I’ve got.

Bottle at the Kitchin, Edinburgh. Darkish red colour, a touch of hops on the nose. Thankfully not a strong seaweed taste or flavour, just enough to round it out and make it unique. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours black with a thin head. Aroma is molasses. Smooth and creamy for a bottle. Further down in the glass, a chocolate flavor comes out. Not getting any different flavor from the kelp. Pretty good beer with low alcohol good for a session.

Very thin. Tastes more like smoked cabbage than seaweed. Wouldn’t buy again.

Simply dire - I couldn’t finish my bottle of it. Probably appeals to fans of Scottish heavy ales...not me
