Deep red - amber beer. Short lived pale tan head. Smooth but pretty dry palate. Roasty dark malt and sweet blackcurrant. Sounds great but its not! The sweetness is very artificial tasting and clashes horribly with the roast malt. Completing the disaster is a very dry finish and a horrible saccharine aftertaste. Smoke and coffee as well. Grim!

Leighton (19833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Dark, clearish brown pour with a light film. Sweet, currant and grape nose. Definite blackcurrant character in the flavor, nice and sweet, with modest roasty malts. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. More roast, though mild, in the finish, with some sugars and lingering fruit notes. A really interesting, tasty and dynamic beer.

harrisoni (17687) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Smells of blackcurrant. Like Ribena and blackcurrant Angel Delight. Blackcurrant vanilla in mouth. Quite pleasant but not sure where the fruit has cone from. Fine if fruitily odd

imdownthepub (13834) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle conditioned at Standing Room Only, Cheddar Gorge, Somerset. Dark tawny with tan head. Initially quite a heavy fruitiness to this with a harsh aspartame, sweetener type flavour. This eased off after a while, the fruitiness became a little more natural and the body developed a liquorice character. It remained sweet but more drinkable. Reasonable.
