2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark color with a off white head. Very few aromas, but berries and a hint of metallic, not fantastic... The taste is roasted malts, chocolate and some fruits. Not a sweet stout at all, and where is the cranberries??

Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Dark red with small off white head. Roasted malt and tart fruit. Sweet and tart with lasting bitterness. A little over carbonated for me. Ok.

smells like chocolate and melting plastic (!?) black body with ruby edging, dry, watery chocolatey average and not at all what it should have been.

Ruby. Dense and persistent beige head and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and berries. Similarly fine taste, well balanced with bitterness. Surprisingly quaffable. Wonderful mouthfeel.

0,5l flaske fra Inverness, delt med importør Ovesen ombord på Fridtjofen juli-14: fint gardinskum, nydelig rubinfarge og aroma av kraftige bær (tranebær) og kaffe. Syrligfrisk smak og god munnfylde. Lang ettersmak med balansert bitterhet, her er der mye glede for bare 4,7%.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer dated 10/14. Yeasty/bready aroma, with red berries and chocolate milk. Deep mahogany appearance with a small, rocky tan head. Sweetness to taste with an abrupt finish. Slight slick, creamy mouthful, but fairly light-bodied for a stout. Typically low carbonation

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from Beer-Ritz, Leeds. Pours clear amber brown, not that dark for the style. Thin off-white head. Aromas of light roast and berries. Taste is the same. Thin, not to exiting. Expected a bit more to be honest.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, dark brown beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite neutral, with caramel and some roasted notes. It’s full- to medium-bodied, with a nice carbonation level, semi-dry on the palate. Roasted malts, some chocolate and a nice bitterness in the flavor. Lasting roasted finish with a decent bitterness. A tasteful one, easy drinkable too, but i’m not impressed in any way. 140503
