Beer Festival 2009. Pitch black beer with a bitter and roasted aroma, the flavour is rich, watery and roasted. Overall a nice beer.
Cask at Microbar, Battersea, 13th Feb 2009, with chriso. Smoky aroma. Dry, roasty, fruity flavour. Very good finish. Nicely drinkable with the raspberry hints being subtle and enjoyable. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 Cask, various dispense, Burton, Notts and Brunswick BFs. Temperature was key. Too cold and the slim chocolate and fondant raspberries were frozen out. When warm, a little cloying. There was a point though when the beer felt as if it melted in the mouth, fruits oozing, sweet raisins and just that spider-stripe of raspberry riven through. Needed drinking slowly and needed drinking often. Yummy. maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Nottingham BF. A black beer with a beige head. It’s a reasonably good tasty porter but I’m not picking up the raspberries at all. There is a subtle fruitiness, but I get that in a lot of porters and stouts so nothing unusual there. It’s tasty alright.

Cask gravity at Oxford Beer Festival 16-10-08 Pours a very dark brown colour not much of a head but what there is, is light beige. Chocolate and hops fly around on the nose ’Coco Pops’ maybe? The taste is a little more of the same, on occasion I found this to be just ever so slightly thin, but its a pleasant chocolatey, hoppy beer leaparsons (10710) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2008
