Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle from Kernel brewery. It pours near black, with a thin beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet, roasted malt, earth, chocolate and some dark fruit. The taste is bitter-sweet chocolate, roasted malt, earth, tangy dark fruit (particularly blackcurrant and blueberry) and filter coffee, with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well balanced and flavoursome. Great stuff.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and dark brown with mahogany highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma features fudge and a mildly earthy component. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is burnt and medium-bitter - charcoal and ash come to mind. Finishes astringent, carbonic, lightly bitter and Sahara-dry. Not my cup of tea, but too solid to dismiss. Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94!

Ferris (7691) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle - Dark roast with bittersweet chocolate and some dark fruit. Jet black with a rich brown head. Dark roast, almost burnt, bittersweet chocolate and a hoppy bitterness in the finish. Very good and all the sweeter for this review ties me with FONEFAN. For the moment anyways.
