Bottle @ Bruce’s. The pour’s thick, sludgy dark brown with a small head. Intimidating pour. The nose is grape, caramelized cherry. Brownie mix, cocoa. The taste is earthy, sweet. Cinnamon spiced chocolate cake. Some lactose. Vietnamese coffee. Full body, soft carbonation. Great stuff.

Again, thanks go out to Sean9689 for this beer. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip at a recent tasting. Pours near black with a good creamy mocha head with a bit of spotty lacing. The nose brings forward chocolate and roast along with some light smoke. Spices linger in the background. The flavor hits pretty hard, especially combined with the feel, with some chocolate and roast. Really heavy chocolate and some spice. Creamy body with light carbonation and an uber-smooth finish. Very well done by the CCB crew and their cross-Atlantic compatriots. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-25-2011

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
Big bottle, kindly shared by larsga. Black with ruby edges. Low mocha head. Nose is faint ashy dark malts, black chocolate and hint of salty licorice. Well-roasted dark malt dominate the falvor. Notes of salty licorice, tar and burnt wood. A mellowing fruit tone underneath. Bittering hops for balancing only. More than medium full. Alcohol is noticable. Quite rough on the palate. Dryish burnt, slight peppery and fruity aftertaste.

Bottle thanks to 50belair. Heavy dark brown/black pour, with a dense tan head. Chocolate, heavily roasted malts, burnt brown sugar, spice, dark fruit, molasses, and a touch of infected sourness. It was good except for the light unpleasant sour notes. Nice heavy, sugary dessert beer. Rating 2600.

Wow. 750 from CCB. Pours the typical Wambles dark black with a small tan head. Nose is raisin, chocolate, port, booze, slight rum, and sweetened chocolate. Flavor is a bit fudgy with raisins within: raisin, rum, chocolate, slight dark fruit, and slight rum. Medium-bodied stout that gains more complexity the warmer it gets. Very enjoyable imperial sweet stout.

Bottled in 2011.

Appearance: Pours out a black body with a high, deep tan-hued head.

Smell: Fire-cured toasted breadcrusts and roasted grains with an edge of smokiness encapsulating notes of chocolate, raisin, and star anise.

Taste: Sweetish dark, roasty maltiness. Vanilla-flavored simple syrup over the toasted, predominately roasted malts trailing into plump raisins and a light dust of spices. The bitterness present seems more a product of the roasted malts. Warming alcohol throughout. A little Raisinette on the finish with some spice and peppery alcohol lingering into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light carbonation leading to a heavier, near-full mouthfeel.

Overall: You know, it’s a good, collaborative stout. Now then, pass the Hunahpu’s!
