Nephilium (1701) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2008
(Bottle purchased recently, no vintage on the bottle, but it was an Imperial Porter) Nice big chocolate aroma, with underlying hints of dark fruits and roast. Pours an opaque black with a thick tan head. Flavor has strong roasted notes, touches of chocolate and coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Alcohol is well hidden. Finish is all bittersweet chocolate. A really nice beer that Iíd like to pick up some more of to cellar.

Bottle shared by Damian and Lona. Opened in 2015, so that probably influenced the aroma and taste. Caramel, dark fruit, some vinegar.

Tasting at Jackís RAH Annexe! Thanks to Paul for this blast from the past. Almost opaque dark brown beer, small bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light. Oxidised malts, some caramel. Touches of dry cream and dark chocolate. Archeological fragment of hop. Light dry finish. Clearly aged but not bad.

Bottle at Chateau Jackl, big thanks to Da Croydon Hustler, 13/08/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a moderate tan swirl and covering. Nose carries light oxidisation but this is forgiveable as toffe fudge, fig infused dark fruits and light roast overpower this immediately balanced with woody notes and an earthy pitch. Taste comprises earthy vibes, cocoa powder, dark fruit rinds, dates, rich fruit cake, chocolate, musty pang. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light booze trace. Decent stuff for 7 years old and the alcohol (has either dipped and/or) is well integrated!

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paul for this geriatric. Pours rich brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has some oxidized dark malts, cocoa, roast, dark fruits. Medium to big sweet flavor, some scorched earth, dark cherries, light coffee, baking cocoa, currants. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, some raisins, black currants, earth, toasty bread, mellow grain husk, cocoa. Well nuanced. Very nice.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle, cheers to Scopey for the pour! Slightly soupy deep brown with a small tan head. Brownie mix. Toasted coconut and a bit of cinnamon butter. Roasted dark malts. The taste has a pretty woody character. Dark roasted coffee. Brown sugar. Dark forest fruits. Hints of blue cheese and walnut. Full body, prickly carb. This has held up well.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared at JackLís.... It pours near black with a small tan head. The nose is rich, earthy, light oxidation, must, fig, cocoa, dark chocolate, light toast and rocky road. The taste is toasty, roast, wood, earth, must, booze, chewy, dark chocolate, chocolate cake and alcohol warmth with a dry, woody finish. Fullish body and fine carbonation. Aged for sure, but pretty well-rounded.
