August 2016 - Bottle share at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, Day 1. Thanks! As ’Rose Brew Black Rose Chocolate Stout’. Opaque black, red hue, small foamy tan head. Aroma is rose water, pink petals, Turkish Delight. Body is quite light, tingly carbonation, a touch frothy. Taste is soapy, rose water, Turkish Delight. Quite intense, and I find this sickly and out of balance as compared to the White Rose. (3.1) Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle shared at the chriso and Ruth pre GBBF Shindig 2016 - London. Day 1. Pours mostly clear brown with a creamy film on top. The nose holds rose petals, light berry tang. Light sweet flavour, dry, with very slight cocoa, leather, Turkish delight. Light in body with average carbonation. Drying on the finish, with further Turkish delight, roses. Interesting.

Bottle from the Essex Beer Shop, Billericay. Pours black with a small off white head. Aroma is of fragrant roses, perfume, malt, some chocolate, but mainly roses. Has an odd perfumed sweetness to taste. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Good try but this didn’t totally work for me. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 9, 2016
