Bottle, at London Shindig, August 2007. Dark brown. Some raisins and other dried fruity on a malty, candi sugar base. Nothing too exciting but pleasant enough. Mellow mouthfeel. Finishes a touch too sweet for my liking.

A Mes rate:
50cl bottle at Chris O’s Shindig. Reasonably attractive dark brown colour with a slight off white head. Sweet malt aroma, fairly dull. Heavy caramel flavour, more malt and some light chocolate notes. Late bitter / sour note makes it pleasing to drink. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Burgundy reflections come across the dark brown body. Fair off-white head lasts atop it all. Earthy, caramelly and sugary nose hides a metallic component that becomes more obvious in mouth where the maltiness takes an interesting date-like twist. Rather expanding carbonation feels airy. Sweet and filling flavours with a definite liquorice reminding trait. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle at Chris_o’s "smash Kook’s granny tasting". Alround rating: Darker sweet sugary malt, belgian fruity esters off the yeast, far too sweet and over carbonated. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle. Sweet, lightly caramelly start, slightly grainy mouthfeel. Some light yeastyness, and quite soft in the mouth. NOt a whole lot happening, but seems quite clean and pleasant.
