Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Clear brown beer. residual tan head. Light dry palate. Sweeeeeet malt! Well integrated sweet candyish red fruits. Trace of toffee. Light dry finish. Bubblegum and jammy fruits aftertaste. This is a bloody sweet beer - and I have a sweet beer tooth but I could imagine this would bee too much for most!

[3260-20100803] Cask sample. Not much aroma, a little alcoholic grains. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Grainy malt flavour is a little thick and long-lasting afterward. Medium body. Good.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Cask @ ?The Bell, Bath? not sure. Beautifully dark, opaque and nearly black. Nice color but does have an oily appearance with no lace. Dark fruity aroma is inviting with lots of cherry. Cherry and spice throughout. Is quite vinous. Soft palate. Very interesting.

renffisch (891) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Pint from my Dave at GBBF 2010. Darkest blood red ruby colour. Fine bubbled rim, no lace. Fruity wet moss nose with a sweetener touch, quite chemical. Bitter nettle grass flavours with a heap of bitter sugared honey to finish off. Still quite artificial but more medicinal at the end. Odd watery finish.
