COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE 1ST FAITHLESS THIS YEAR (XVII), IS A BEETROOT STOUT. I LOVE THE FLAVOUR OF BEETROOT, IT WORKS VERY WELL WITH CHOCOLATE SO WEíVE PRODUCED A FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD STOUT BASE AND ADDED THE BEETROOT AT DIFFERENT STAGES, SO FAR THE BOIL AND FERMENTATION, I AM PRETTY SURE IíM NOT GOING TO ADD ANY IN CASK. THE BEETROOT HAS GIVEN THE BEER AN INTERESTING HINT OF PURPLE AND A LOVELY EARTHY DEPTH OF FLAVOUR.

Cask conditioned handpump Earl Of Essex London 15/02/13. A black beer with a whitish head. A really nice smoky stout. No beetroot for me but instead excellent roasty malts. There is a fruiy nose to the nose but I get that in a lot of stouts and I didnít place it as beetroot. Very very drinkable and right up my street.

Bottle, pours dark brown, almost black, reddish tinge. Vegetables on the nose but a sweet vegetable smell i would have guessed at carrots if id have not known it was a beetroot stout. Chocolate on the palate, not a great deal of beetroot but you do get a little.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and chocolate. Bitter, toasted malty and dry chocolate. Bitter and dry malty, chocolate into a mild herbal and dry finish. Roasted dark chocolate beer. Not much beetroot, perhaps a vague citric note.

SaintMatty (5096) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2013
330ml Bottle - Black in colour. Coffee, plain chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of milk in the aroma. Salt liquorice, roasted malt, plain chocolate, coffee and some slightly smoky notes all feature in the roasted and slightly sweet taste. I am not really picking up the beetroot, but itís interesting all the same.

BenH (2198) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours flat black with little tan head when heavily roused. Thin roasty aroma. Light roasty flavour, not much going on here. Oily and flat. Inoffensive but nothing much going on here

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Pours an inky black with the slightest tinge of purple around the edges, no head. Smart looking bottle, too. Aroma is good - nice distinct coffee and chocolate notes, with some plummy fruits and a definite beetroot note on the end. Taste is coffee grain at the start, with a little plummy note and a real earthy/vegetal (in a good way) note, presumably from the beetroot, which comes towards the end. Completely flat, which is a shame (minus one palate point). Very interesting, though, itís nice.

Bottle at home, 10th march 2013, still freezing here, so went for a big stout night Sunday, this is number 2. Pours flat, no head or carbonation, black, aroma is stouty, taste is full on beetroot, a little weird, I like it, but would not rush back for more
