jackl (5823) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle @ Travlr’s Satellite 10k Shindig. Deep brown pour with no head. Nose unfortunately has a touch of soy sauce in addition to general cocoa, roasted malts, Hershey’s etc. Taste is similar with light accents of forest fruits. A touch of acidity. Full body, oily.

bytemesis (4767) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle with thanks to 50Belair! Pours inky black, medium creamy brown head, slow to dissipate and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is like a raspberry truffle, lots of dark chocolates and fruity goodness. Flavor is sweet, lots of recognizable raspberry, which surprises me a bit, dark chocolates. I am not getting much port or even barrel from the beer. Fullish body, decent mouthfeel, but not up to what I would expect from CCB. A bit hot. Just a touch of astringency, which is perhaps the primary indicator of time spent in wood. Ok, after the beer warms some of the cherry flavors resolve themselves into tawny port a bit.

Leighton (14431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle shared during the satellite Travlr 10K tasting at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Many thanks to C-Note for this CC beast. Pours oily black with a bubbly brown head. The aroma is heavy with rich roasted malts, dried raspberries and dense chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor with pronounced baking cocoa, bitter burnt wood, roasted malts, charcoal, raspberry seeds, dried fruit leather raspberry. Full bodied with fine carbonation and chewy mouthfeel. Lightly warming on the finish with more rich chocolate and decadent, ripe raspberry. Well balanced and not overly hefty. Wonderful.

Theydon_Bois (12925) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from an IP trade, shared at the satellite 10K tasting CBC Clerko, 19/08/14. Pitch black with a dirty tan head that retains well - this beer looks the bollocks. Nose is big roast, sticky dark toffee, chocolate dipped raspberries, light spice, booze, faint smoke, rich chocolate fumes. Taste comprises rich chocolate raspberries, port notes, decadent chocolate sauce, toffee fudge, woody port tinge. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, lightly warming booze in the close. Solid impy, great flavours, rich and vibrant, does as it says on the tin and drinks well below the ABV.

mR_fr0g (5839) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle share at the satellite 10k tasting at the craft clerko. Thanks Colin. Aroma is big liquorice, caramel and vanilla, quite sweet, some wood. Viscous dark caramel colour with a loose tan head. Flavour is tangy raspberry jam, caramel sweet, vanilla, caramel, woody. A bit black forest gateau. Palate is full and sticky, smooth and dryish finish. Long lingering raspberry jam. Really nice.

Scopey (9423) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle big thanks to Colin. It pours filthy jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roast, fresh raspberry, dark chocolate, earth, gateaux, espresso coffee, wood and toasted coconut. The taste is rich roast, cocoa, red berry, mild acidity, jammy, pepper, toast, light warmth (but nowhere near 11%), vinous, wood and fruit yoghurt with a smooth, roasty finish. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. Hides abv very well. Fruity and dangerously drinkable.

hopscotch (10147) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle... Wayne Wambles-black pour with a brief, creamy, tan head. The nose furnishes heaps of berries, brownie brittle and dark chocolate creme. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and accompanied by deep roastiness and a modest measure of of bitterness. This is not at all overly sweet, but it’s already displaying some unfortunate, cardboard-like oxidation. Finishes silky, fruity and tangy.

Ricoslim (116) - - JUL 3, 2014
Had thanks to Prazak and the Rev. Poured into a sniffer. Color is dark with light head. Chocolate comes through nicely and port wine comes through ever so lightly. Really smooth.
