Beersiveknown (3426) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail
hazy ruby tinged brown with tan tinged head. Gives little away on the nose some muted cinnamon notes and cardboard. Begins fairly sweet, a dusting of cocoa, stewed plums, a tingle of chili, burnt roast barley notes, some coffee. Finishing fairly dry. A little lacking in chili but plums are certainly there.

Great choccy and roasted depth with a nice fruit background. A thin start finishes with a beautiful complex spice and plum finish !

sic1314 (3880) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2013
Cask at Birmingham Beer Bash. Poured a slightly murky dark brown with a frothy tan head, Aroma of the spiceyness. Medium body, the chili somewhat overpowered the hint of dark fruit. Nice enough, but not exactly more-ish.

zacgillbanks (2620) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a very dark brown hazy beer with red fruit (plum) and milk chocolate flavours, sweetness and roasted notes on the finish. I couldn’t detect any real spicy warmth, but a very nice beer.

Idiosynkrasie (4233) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2013
500ml bottle. Dark brown colour with average to huge, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Fruity aroma, hints of plum, a touch of chili in the background. Taste is initially fruity, hints of plum, later dry dark malty, bitter hoppy, minimally soapy overtones, a peppery touch of chili in the background flashes up in the finish. Nice composition, could still tolerate more strength of the individual components (dark malt, fruit, chili) if proportionality is kept.

BeerCast_Rich (1896) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2013
[cask at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh] Deep, dark, purplish red beer with a large, off-white head. Aroma is bittersweet, with some stone fruit and a whiff of the black pepper about it. On the taste, some slight flashes of sweet plums, damsons, or other similar fruits, before the chilli bitterness arrives on the finish. Not so much a chilli kick, more a slight prod with the boot. Still, it comes together quite well and is certainly interesting [07052013]
