Beer fit for a Tsar; huge alcohol content from our Belgian yeast drives the massive coffee-chocolate flavours of the stout. The slow six month maturation in our favourite whisky cask adds deep, breaking tannins and oak flavours.

Leighton (18710) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London - massive thanks to Ian for continuing to source his local beers! Pours oily black-brown with a faint, tan bubble head. Dark malt nose, alcohol, some medicinal aspects. Big sweet flavor with tangy dark malts, plums, wet wood. Full bodied with dead flat carbonation. And it has a super oily mouthfeel. Lightly warming finish, medium sweetness, light toffee. Very flat and oily. Some chocolate in here. Interesting but fairly rough.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Ian, 30/12/12. Light black with a very thin tan head that clears immediately. Nose is soy sauce, dark malt, burnt toffee, wood. Taste is dark malt, harsh booze, sweet sugars, whisky tones, wood, more booze. Full bodied, flat as in terms of carbonation, harsh boozey finish. Ok - drinkable, lacking balance, rough around the edges.
