MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Weird, weird mix. Fruity, Red Berries, Black Currants, then some Coffee, and then some chocolate. Has light touches of tea also. Very thin, not the best.

Viper666 (3286) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de Hogtownharry / Blankboy. de couleur brune foncée et quasi-opaque. Nez de malt sucré moyennement rôti (notes de caramel), léger de café, légèrement fruité (pommes vertes aux notes sûres, faibles notes de bananes vertes) avec des notes de chocolat noir et des traces de tabac. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture très légèrement crémeuse. Goût fruité très légèrement sûr (léger de pommes vertes, notes de prunes, traces de bananes vertes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt sucré légèrement terreux et aux notes rôties et brûlées avec un léger goût de café et des traces de chocolat noir puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral avec des traces de fumée de cigarette. Post-goût moyen aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de café avecdes notes de rôti, de houblon floral ainsi qu’une légère aigreur fruitée (pépins de pommes, traces de pelures de prunes).

500ml bottle - Dark brown, frothy tan head. Nice colour. Roasted grains, bitter-sweet chocolate, cocoa powder. Straightforward, simple, a bit too grainy. Medium to medium/light body, just a bit smoother than balanced. Not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (6693) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a muddy chocolate brown with very little head. Nose of raisins, dried malt bread. Taste of malt loaf, very dry raisins. Palate is medium bodied with a tangy middle and a drying finish. Overall, slightly disappointing when you consider it to be a Christmas beer but maybe alright on cask..
