Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, big tan head. Softish palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation. Not getting a huge amount of difference from the regular Bart! Perhaps a little more spicy. So very nice again!

Leighton (11824) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London during Jack’s farewell tasting. Big thanks to Bruce for this rarity. Pours rich, brown-black with a creamy beige head. Nose holds some syrupy brown sugar, rich bread, figs. Big sweet flavor, moderately boozy with rich dark sugars, raisins, bread, a bit of dark chocolate. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, gooey brown sugar, rich bread, raisins and figs, some chocolate. Really tasty. A bit richer and less bitter than the non-iced version.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted, woody, vanilla and caramel with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Mostly-clear dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is an intermingling of bourbon, caramel, chocolate, and both medium and deeply-roasted malts interwoven and then flanked with whispers of dried plum and vanilla. Full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is a sweet swirl of caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and oak accompanied by more subdued notes of dark chocolate, bourbon and dried plum. Chewy, caramel finish. There are complexities of imperial stouts, barleywines and bourbon barrels at play here, and they play very nicely together. This world class beer was generously shared by newcigarz!
