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.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Smells a rich but slight musky like a creamy cheese. So dark it almost entirely blocks out light. with a thick creamy head. The tastes starts off cocoa but then the spices start to take control it ends with a slight pleasant burnt taste

brnandersen (1928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2013
Sample from 650 ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a reddish hue. Tiny tanned head. Sweet aroma with dark chocolate, spices, toasted caramel malts, ripe sweet fruits. A sour, yeasty note. Taste is sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and fruity with a herbal and spiced note. Okay spiced up beer. I wonder wheather that sourish, yeasty note was intended from the brewer?
