Bottle.Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark red brown colour. Wonderfull berr to look at. Alas no aroma, but powerfull taste of licorice. Fantastic long finish. Oily palate but too carbonated.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 courtesy of oh6gdx - dark amber-brown colour with a little beige head; malty and fairly hoppy with rich fruity notes (cherry, litchi); smooth and initially quite sweet, late and decent bitterness; fruity finish with some residual sugars - character and balance

Bottle. [thank you, oh6gdx]
Pours deep nutty brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee, good roasted malts, some dried fruits and a touch of chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit roasted, some viniousness, lots of prunes and raisins. Medium sweetness, good dark roasted caramel. Fine beer.

Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head. Dark fruits and some dark hops in aroma. Dark roasted malts, dried fruits and some bitter hoppiness. Dark ale, not my favourite type of ale.

3.3
allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
500ml bottle from B&M home store. Pours clear dark mahogany brown, some red chinks shining through, thin, short-lived off-white head. Aromas of treacle, raisins, light metallic note. Some prunes too. Taste is liquorice, molasses, treacle. Faint herbal hops, that don’t quite clean up the sticky finish, but they make an effort.
