Bottle at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy tan head. Light palate, a little dry. Airy. Semi sweet dark malt. Trace of dark chocolate. Little wood and vanilla. Finishes semi dry with spicy bourbon and a little aniseed but the alcohol heat is kept in check.

Leighton (14746) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s, London - big thanks to Ken for another great one. Pours deep, brown-black with a frothy, beige foam head. Aroma holds lots of dark fruits, some alcohol, nips of strawberries and dark chocolate. Big sweet flavor, lots of dark bread, plenty of dark fruits, blackberries, mellow chocolate, some burnt wood. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, fairly dry with all the burnt wood, some burnt brown sugar, bits of vanilla, hard alcohol, cake. Sweet, rich, pretty dry, goody roasty malts...I like it.

Roasted chocolate aroma, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, woody, raisins, figs, plums, some cream, bourbon, some raisins, and figs. Raisin and fig flavor, caramel, vanilla, whiskey, cream, coffee notes, licorice, chocolate, spicy notes, coffee, some cocoa powder.

Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, massive thanks to GT2 for gifting me this one, 24/01/15. Black with a decent tan covering. Nose is light chocolate, big roasted notes, spice, hint of coconut, dark toffee fudge, woody barrel tones. Taste comprises dark malts, rich chocolate, liqourice, molasses, toffee melt, subtle well tempered bourbon tunes. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, subtle BA wash in the close. Solid BA impy, good balance, easy drinker.

bhensonb (12758) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Blue Wax bomber from Nugget in Davis, CA. Pours very dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is bourbon, coffee, chocolate, treacle. Bourbon and chocolate seem tied. Full bodied, definitely. Trace of heat. Strong chocolate start, quick shit to bourbon/vanilla, oak pops in, and treacle washes away. It’s extremely tasty stuff and finishes pretty much like it starts. Delicious.
