maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2007
Bottled - Chris O shindig 2007 - A dark brown, almost black coloured beer with some tan pools of head. The aroma is dark fruits such as raisins, and bredy malts. It has a Belgian nose. The taste is fruity with more raisins. Lacks body but it’s drinkable enough.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2007
Brown with a lasting light brown head. Malty aroma with some plum. Big sweet, fruity, malty flavour with a rich and deep malt character. My first beer at the Chris_O shindig, and a great way to start the day.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2007
Medium to good yellow head; deep amber-chestnut colour. Roasted, roasted chestnuts or oats, duckfat. Roasted taste, caramel, but not cloying; ending a bit nutty. Little sticky MF all the same, rather well-bodied. Not too sweet which is good.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Burgundy reflections come across the dark brown body. Fair off-white head lasts atop it all. Earthy, caramelly and sugary nose hides a metallic component that becomes more obvious in mouth where the maltiness takes an interesting date-like twist. Rather expanding carbonation feels airy. Sweet and filling flavours with a definite liquorice reminding trait.

Bottle@chris_o. Light chocolate with malts and a hint of molasses. Brown color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, chocolate, malty, light bitterness. Very drinkable and flavorful, not complex but nice.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at Chris O’s Shindig. Reasonably attractive dark brown colour with a slight off white head. Sweet malt aroma, fairly dull. Heavy caramel flavour, more malt and some light chocolate notes. Late bitter / sour note makes it pleasing to drink.
