weaselkenievil (1609) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
This is Belgian? Ah Scottish & Newcastle. That explains it. Not my thing really. Dark red tinted brown with a pale cream head. Malty, cardboard and metal, thinners, alcohol very present. Sweet and sugary. Berry type fruit, spices, bit cloying and nasty mouthfeel. I needed a strong drink at 5.00am, this fitted the bill and it was just for necking and thank Eric it was. Average at best.

3.2
Pinball (12249) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2009
very beautiful clear red with a thick solid light brown head. must be filtered, but i must admit it looks super nice. mild fruity sawdusty hoppy aroma, red berries seem to dominate. flavor is red berries, cherry, wood? (is it aged??), caramel, malt, very faint "american" style hops like flavor (not sure what it is), also lots of sweetness and dark fruits. faint spices, alc sensed as a spice, strange metallic tinge to the flavor that i don’t like, but overall tasty and intersting.

The beer has a brown color with a thin offwhite head. Nice aroma of spices, chocolate and malt. Good flavor of chocolate, malt and spices. The body is light with a liquorous texture and soft carbonation.
