Draught (EBF2008)asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2008
Chocolatey aroma. Lively carbonation. Light body - no way this is 6.7% as indicated in the programme. Decent burnt edge to the rich roasty taste. OK hops too. So so so easy to drink.
Pleasant roasty aroma with some dark malt bubblegum and notes of coffee, cinnamon, and prunes. Opaque black with a lasting, beige cover. Sweet and sour toast and coffee flavour with tons of dried fruit that mingle with the tangy sourness. Balance on the sweet side, but there is some stabiliizing bitterness as well. Sour finish, medium carbonation, medium body. gnoff (10859) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2008

ÅBF08 Roasted and sweet aroma. Almost black colour, no head. The flavour starts off roasted and nice, turns more towards fruit and cardboard. Starts off well, but does not finish as well. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2008
Near black colored with little light brown head. Coffee dominates in this aroma with dry touch and caramel, slight berries also here. Medium bodied, still slightly watery palate. Flavor is also berry with same roastiness, still some burned note here also. Aftertaste is sweet still with same caramel, roastiness also here. gunnfryd (15176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2008

500. Thanks, Thewolf! Black. Thick, dense, and creamy tan head with medium lace. Nose is a perfect blend of chocolate and smoke. Creamy medium body with chocolate, campfire, and chalk on the mid-palate. Mild finish. Beautifully balanced and harmonious. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2008
