Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, - MAR 11, 2012
On tap at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours deadly, oily black with a lively, creamy beige foam head. With just the slightest of swirls the beer comes back to life with the head as good as new. The aroma does not suggest the beer is as strong as it is. There are certainly notes of whiskey, but the intensity is less than I’d expect. Also notes of vanilla, burnt cocoa, wood and lots of dark, ripe fruits in the nose. The flavor makes you believe in the 15%. It is very sweet, yes, but there’s also a boozy sting that hits you right away. Once you get beyond the strong alcohol, there is some nice burnt wood character, along with raisins, dark cocoa, licorice, and mild peat. Full, full in body with fine tot average carbonation. Hot finish with the booze really stinging the teeth and all. There’s a long, oaky and burnt malty finish as well, highlighted with sugary, dark and ripe fruits, licorice, alcohol, prunes, light tobacco, earth, moss, dark sugars, toffee and molasses. This is a HUGE beer. A 1/3 of a pint is almost too much, but that’s what I’ve got. I do enjoy it, but now, afterr three beers in this pub on a warm Sunday afternoon, I am ready to go home.

SkillsFactory (521) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2016
Lotto 447, Best before 23/12/2016, aperta il 13/03/2016. Praticamente nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma tra ocra e nocciola non molto persistente che forma un anello in superficie lungo la parete del bicchiere. Aroma di toffee, whisky meno evidente che in altre versioni ma comunque ben presente, vaniglia, salsa di soia, liquirizia meno in evidenza, amarene sotto spirito, note legnose, rabarbaro. Al palato toffee, whisky, liquirizia, zucchero bruciato, finale legnoso misto a polvere di caffè, cioccolato fondente, rabarbaro ed erbaceo. Corpo pieno, bassa carbonazione, corposa ed oleosa, buon equilibrio.

To sweet and heavy bodied, but not bad at all. Malts, chocolate, to much sugar...

This rating is done in memories of Mr. Ian Kilmister while listening to Bomber. The album is great as is the Beer.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - DEC 16, 2015
Nera impenetrabile con una superba schiuma marrone. Al naso tostato, cioccolato, legno tornato, whisky ed una notevole complessità di frutti passiti. In bocca corpo rotondo e bassa carbon stura, accompagnano i sentori già vissuti al naso con una dolce nota di vaniglia. L'amaro è ben bilanciato ed il finale è armonioso in un calore rassicurante.
