MelvinKalksma (202) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
Aroma: Licorice, chocolate, caramel, toffee, bread, slight dark fruit. Appearance: Ruby/black beer with a foamy medium-sized light brown head. Taste/Palate: Where the aroma is mostly an imperial stout, the taste is dominated by fruit for everything but the first two seconds.

mutz (727) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2015
Bierfestival Tegelen. De versie uit bordeaux vaten. Donker van kleur, weinig kraag. Ruikt naar wijn, zuur, hout. Smaakt houtig en zurig, beetje als een duchesse, bitterzoete asperine afdronk. Apart.

Nose is wine and smoke, flavor is wine, roasted malt, toast, vanilla. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bitter, light alcohol warmth. Full body, dry sticky texture, lively carbonation. Quite heavy dessert beer, interesting.

Garrold (2882) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Nearly black. Thick, bubbly, lasting, sticky, tan head. Moves in slow motion. Lovely looking beer. Nose has dregs of red wine. Hard caramel chocolates. Woody, and grassy. Dark fruits. Taste is fruity, tangy, and vinous bitter. Woody dryness. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Finishes light, slightly smoky, fruity tart, bitter. Sank this in no time. Lovely tang. Nice stout in red wine barrels. Not much to dislike, for me.

Leighton (14821) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle shared in London - cheers to Daniel for this one. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Rich malts in the nose, some earth, ripe fruits. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with dark fruits, berries, toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more hearty dark fruit character. Not bad overall.

MarcoDL (3090) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Black pour, off white head. Aroma of vinous tardy red fruit, coffee, caramel and licorice. Taste of caramelised malt, red wine, red fruit tart, oak, fresh anise and bitter coffee in the finish. Better than expected.

Theydon_Bois (13591) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle split at Jack The Sipper leaves for the FBI again tasting, thanks to Daniel, 14/07/15. Black topped with a decent tan covering. Nose is dark malts, dark fruit peel, chocoalte, earthy notes. Taste comprises light roast, trace of barrel, dark chocolate, molasses, light charr. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Low end of style, not a stinker but simply lacks depth.
