Bottle at The Horseshoe in Hampstead, London on 1 July 2013.
Pours a very deep ruby with a brown head. Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, liquorice. Full bodied with some initial sweetness from the malts nicely balanced with bitter burnt notes. Rich dark fruits and almost port flavours linger on the palate. Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
A near black, with frothy mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, raisins and light coffee. Flavour is more raisins, vanilla, chocolate, liquorice. Well bodied and easy on its way down. DanielBrown (4500) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Don’t smell like owt, except maybe lager. Really good this. solid, hardened teak exterior, with a flare of booze. It’s like a magnificent Schwarzbier: great slippery mouthfeel and dark flavour wrapped accessibly inside a refreshing delivery mode. Rampage.

Bottle. Black with a small head.Plenty of body. Malty with some coffee also present. No bitterness whatsoever. An excellent example of this lovely style. jmgreenuk (9326) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is dry and malty, leading to a smooth medium bitter flavour with lots of roasted malt, a little dark chocolate and some spicy pepper on the super rich, creamy and smooth palate. A really awesome beer! RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle beer merchants.com. Ruby black beer. Acrid aroma, great roast palate, chocolatey, with coffee hints and trace brown sugar. Balancing bittersweet finish. Very fine. Vignale (3785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2013
Flaska från SB. Riktigt mörkt brun ogenomtränglig vätska, hög smutsvit/ljusbeige skumkrona som långsamt skjunker till ett lock. Kärv rostad doft. Kraftig kropp med hårdrostade, men inte brända smaker. torr, stram, alkoholvärme i bakgrunden. Soja, katrinplommon, mörkt bröd, kärv espresso, tydlig beska igenom hela smakbilden. Riktigt trevlig. omhper (24977) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2013
