COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blind Spot - Dark Specialty Ale: Blind Spot is ideal for the colder months, but perfectly enjoyable any time of the year. Fermented with a traditional English yeast. Wonderfully robust, full-bodied with a rich and warming finish. We have added a light dosing of dried ginger, cardamon, grain of paradise and star anise to the whirpool for some enjoyable spicing.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, wręcz nieprzejrzysta (pod światło rubinowa). Piana kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, znikoma i szybko opadająca. Aromat: alkohol, owoce suszone, wino jabłkkowe, potem ciemne słody i czekolada. Smak: słodki, alkoholowy, owocowy, nieco winny, ale i z wyraźnym akcentem czekoladowym i rozgrzewająca końcówką. Dość mocne i złożone piw. wyraźnie alkoholowy czy wręcz winny aromat nie przeszkadza. Kolejne conajmniej solidne piwo z High Water.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 28, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 W aromacie dzieje się dużo, jest czekolada gorzka, sporo czerwonych owoców, przyprawy - przypomina to quadrupla, choć nie jest tak intensywne. W smaku jest wyraźna słodowo - owocowa słodycz, porzeczki, wiśnie, poza tym wyraźna kwaskowość nadana przez ciemne słody, ale i ona jest w posmaku winno owocowa. Do tego dochodzi wyraźna gorzka czekolada i kawa z mlekiem, wszystko spina przyjemna waniliowa nuta.Lekko rozgrzewające. Gładko pijalne mimo woltażu, co czyni to piwo niebezpiecznym. Bardzo smaczne!

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a brownish, reddish beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of coffee, licorice and cloves. Slight herbal. Flavor is medium sweet with touches of laurel and very faint touches of chocolate in the background. A bit unbalanced to the herbal side, but that’s the style I guess. Slight sour taste in the background. Quite a decent beer!

Nocturne (752) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
650ml bottle. Dark brown/black pour with large head. Aroma is earthy roast, cocoa, ginger, chili. Tastes malty with lots of liquorice, cardamom, blackberry, mint. Thick mouthfeel. It’s a bit unusual, so I can see why people might not like it, but it won me over sufficiently.
