Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pretty much black. Aroma us quite rich, almost imperial in its treacly quality. Fairly thick creamy body. Lots of chocolatey depth, dark and delicious. Not much nuance beyond that, but some good dessert beer quality.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Thanks to Paul. Pours deep red-brown with a tight, creamy tan cap. Moderate roast in the nose, lots of milk chocolate, hints of burnt toffee. Medium sweet flavor, some well toasted bread, a bit more burnt toffee, mild earthy bitterness, subtle dried fruits. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Some bitter earth to finish, dry and somewhat chalky cocoa, tame roast. Nicely balanced porter.

Nose is dark malts, big fruity punch, liqourice, dark toffee, light cocoa, hop presence, light smoke.

pivnizub (8920) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2014
Flasch: Literally black, big and slowly collapsing loose tanned head, leather, liquorice, toasted malt and dried fruits in the nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and very creamy; lingering dry - but not too dry - toasty-fruity finish. Superb stuff, no doubt…
