Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013, 10/08/13.
Mid black with a moderately sized tan head.
Nose is root ginger, Jamaica ginger cake, dark fruit, dark malt, cocoa.
Taste comprises light roast, earthy, dirt, cocoa, tarte dark fruit.
Medium bodied, a little over carbonated, dry finish.
Ok impy, a little sour/lactic in places, perhaps a little infected but certainly still drinkable. If this is the case I’m not sure the real deal would have been rated much higher, ginger in beer doesn’t do a huge amount for me! BoBoChamp (5878) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2013

Bottle, 8.6%. Good ginger aroma, quite roasted. Black colour, seems cloudy. Small frothy brown head. The flavour is roasted with a good ginger note. Is a little citric, sourish from the hops, it seems. yespr (47497) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with small tan head. Clear, dusty aroma of roasted malt and ginger. Sweetish, smoky and spicy flavour of malt and ginger. A rather disturbing and unbalanced mixture. Drinkable and decent but I could have expected more. saxo (19472) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
