UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 Cask, various dispense, Burton, Notts and Brunswick BFs. Temperature was key. Too cold and the slim chocolate and fondant raspberries were frozen out. When warm, a little cloying. There was a point though when the beer felt as if it melted in the mouth, fruits oozing, sweet raisins and just that spider-stripe of raspberry riven through. Needed drinking slowly and needed drinking often. Yummy.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Nottingham BF. A black beer with a beige head. It’s a reasonably good tasty porter but I’m not picking up the raspberries at all. There is a subtle fruitiness, but I get that in a lot of porters and stouts so nothing unusual there. It’s tasty alright.

Fin (7017) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2008
Cask gravity at Oxford Beer Festival 16-10-08 Pours a very dark brown colour not much of a head but what there is, is light beige. Chocolate and hops fly around on the nose ’Coco Pops’ maybe? The taste is a little more of the same, on occasion I found this to be just ever so slightly thin, but its a pleasant chocolatey, hoppy beer

Cask, Burton Summer Fest 08. Very dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are earthy roast malts with woody notes. Berries, raspberry and chocolate with floral notes. Flavours are chocolate and coffee with resinous citrus notes. Woody and floral with a very dry finish. Good.
