Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Close to black ale with a firelight tan colour. Delicious roasty+toasty nose with caramel, figs and blue grape flavours complexified by an underlying juicy fruitiness (think dates, pomegranate, blueberry). Absolutely charming and well-made, a coherence malt display. Despite that intention, it finishes dry with its tobacco and ashes nuances in mouth. All along, a soft acidity that never gets obtrusive supervises the development and ensures the desirability of a next sip. Clean medium body with a delicate foaminess.

pivnizub (9160) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2007
Cask (Grog and Gruel, Fort William): Ruby-black coloured, small and lacing off-white layer; distinctive vinous-fruity nose (dark berries) with a tinge of roasted malt; bitter-sweet flavour with a light acidity, light to medium bodied; roasted malt detectable in the dryish, lingering, fruity-vinous and bitter finish. Nothing to complain......

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2007
Hand pump at the Freshfield, black in colour with an off white head, seriously strong aroma of malt on the nose leads onto coffee and espresso taste, fine stuff, malts dominating too. Finishes ever so slightly dry
