Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013, 10/08/13. Mid black with a moderately sized tan head. Nose is root ginger, Jamaica ginger cake, dark fruit, dark malt, cocoa. Taste comprises light roast, earthy, dirt, cocoa, tarte dark fruit. Medium bodied, a little over carbonated, dry finish. Ok impy, a little sour/lactic in places, perhaps a little infected but certainly still drinkable. If this is the case I’m not sure the real deal would have been rated much higher, ginger in beer doesn’t do a huge amount for me!

MiP (13676) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle, 8.6%. Good ginger aroma, quite roasted. Black colour, seems cloudy. Small frothy brown head. The flavour is roasted with a good ginger note. Is a little citric, sourish from the hops, it seems.

Bamsen78 (3244) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with small tan head. Clear, dusty aroma of roasted malt and ginger. Sweetish, smoky and spicy flavour of malt and ginger. A rather disturbing and unbalanced mixture. Drinkable and decent but I could have expected more.
