Drinking a gorgeous half in the harp in Charing Cross. Lovely chocolatey aroma. Rich and creamy taste. Could do another 5 of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamber Jolly day 2 25/01/2014. Tasting at Cafe Abseits. Bottle from cotteridge wines. Opaque dark caramel and red coloured pour with a cream head. Aroma is subdued, faint roast, caramel and hot alcohol. Flavour is spicy pepper, jalapeno, booze , roast, and soft choc. Quite heavy handed with the booze. Warming. Lingering roasty bitterness.

Sip and savour beer this one. SWMBO described it as a cup of coffee served in an ashtray! More favourably, the beer pours black with very soft carbonation. The aroma is of dark baked fruits with a boozy undertone. The palate is well balanced, and the lactose certainly adds a sweet body, so the deep liquorice/mocha taste is balanced out, as are the hops. Even given the storage in barrels of scotch, the aftertaste does not linger as much as I hoped...making this a bit too suppable at 7%. There are better examples of this style, check out the Emilisse stouts, but good nonetheless.

Opaque dark brown - black beer, good tan head. Palate starts smooth but turns crispy from fine minerally carbonation. Smooth light dark malts. Minerals. Whisper of dark chocolate. Big TCP and a little whisky spice. Smooth semi dry finish. Not bad but as usual with these types of whisky, a bit heavy on the TCP.

jfb (4004) - Freising, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
(bottle, courtesy of mR_fr0g) pours a deep black colour with a frothy dark beige head. aroma of heavy roasted malt, some barnyard and chilli peppers, slightly smoky, with just a hint of alcohol. flavour is mostly the same, toasted malts and wheat, with some rather heavy peat smoke and some pea soup in the finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Theydon_Bois (9550) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, Cafe Abseits Tasting bottle big thanks to Fergus, 25/01/14. Light black with a moderate off white swirl that thins to the edge. Nose is dark malts, cocoa, light booze, faint TCP, whisky. Taste comprises dark malts, smoked, whisky, medicinal tones, brown sugars, dark toffee, earthy cocoa, roasty tones. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Ok drinkable affair but lacks a little clout for an impy.

tommann (2808) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
500ml bottle at 7%. Pours black with a medium head. Aroma is roast and beef with a little sweetness. Taste is sweet to start with some roast. Lapsang souchong and chocolate on the finish.

leebotton (225) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Aroma of TCP and duff choc. Nutty flavour. Brown head. Like roast hazelnuts and creamy on the tongue

downender (6445) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottled version at 7% ABV from Gardiner Haskins, Bristol. Dark brown in colour with a decent, tan head. Sweet, milk chocolate and prune, with some charred oak, peat and a hint of whisky warmth before a gentle finish. Very good.
