Yozora (11) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2014
Vintage 2013 bottle run #2. From Mikkeller webshop. Pours a dark brown with a tan, minimal head that disippates fast. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, honey, hints of bourbon, chili, raisins, plums, licorice, oak and quite boozy. Taste of espresso, roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice, alchohol, oak, hints of vanilla with a long, bitter espresso finish. Full bodied with a mild carbonation. Quite sharp for being an eclipse compared to the smoothness of the others I’ve tried, guess its cause of the lower amount of BA beer in the blend. Nice, coffee centered Imp. stout.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Argonaut Denver a few months back. Pours a black appearance with a slight thin dark brown head. Aroma is creamy, earthy, chocolatey, and smooth coffee. Medium bodied. Creamy mouth feel. Moderate bitterness and sweetness. Some booze. Flavor is dark chocolate, lots of roast, and earthy coffee. A bit thin bodied. Not as good as some other versions but this is still pretty good. 2013 version.

arminjewell (6152) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, 2013 version big thanks to Aaron for the bottle! Thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big espresso, roast, chocolate, coffee into some dark fruit, some vanilla, touch of earthy notes. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, coffee, chocolate, roast, hints of big espresso, nice milky lactose notes, finishing fairy sweet, slight bitterness. Very nice.
