Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Black, tan head. Toffee. Bit over carbonated. Fine, bit too much toffee, too sweet, some tingly spice on end.

_o. Coffee and black currant aroma. Black color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, chocolate, coffee, light roasted. Quite full bodied.
Bottled - Chris O shindig 2007 - A black beer with a smoky roasty fishy aroma with notes of licquorice. The taste is good with roasty and smoky notes. I remember criticising their first two beers. This is a huge improvement. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2007
A Mes rate:
50cl bottle at Chris O’s Shindig. Looks as a decent stout should, black and tan. Head died rather quickly however. Sweet malty aroma with dark chocolate, wood smoke and hints of the alcohol. Flavour is similar but not quite so pleasing. Slight buttery note that it just about gets away with. Almost great but not quite. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2007
Black of color with a nice brown head. An aroma of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. A favor of liqurice, chocolate, coffee and notes of sweet dark fruits. gnoff (10890) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2007
(50 cl bottle purchased in Copenhagen) Black color, brown head. Sweet, raissin and coconut scent, also some smoke. Sweet, Swedish "Julmust" and smoke taste, also coffee and roasted malt. Burnt malt and coffee beans with chocolate aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
