Strong notes of wood and wine, dark brown with no head, medium body, a bit oily, again woody and wine with more dark and red fruits...quite good. Ktwse (5551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2017
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of red wine barrels, coffee, dried fruit. Taste is sweet, chocolate and sugar, followedby a lightly tarty and berry sour finish. It works, though. Body is rich and smooth with soft carbonation. john44 (3402) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Thanks to Danny. Opaque dark brown beer, good dark tan head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Rich dark malts, good dark chocolate. A little spice. Decent burgundy fruits, some dried fruits as well. Light semi dry finish. Mild alcohol spice lingers on.

Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Many thanks to Daniel for this one! Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Rich coffee in the aroma, some earthy notes. Medium sweet flavour with lots of bittersweet chocolate, hints of dark fruits. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, sticky, with heavy cocoa character and some earthy bitterness. Nice one.
