Stouts and Porters II. Big thanks to Leighton again for coming up with the Hill Farmstead goods! Opaque black beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and a little dry. Mild fine carbonation. Very light touch of dark malt, no bitterness or roast. Nice light pine hops with well integrated red wine derived red berry fruits. A little oak softness before a dry finish. Bitterish red berry aftertaste. Very nice!

50cl Bottle. Trade with Xerenthar. Thanks. Pours black with a creamy thick beige head and lacings. Nose is roast, coffee, dark fruit, piney hops and wood. Intense and complex. Flavor is wood - mild red wine like, hops, funk and coffee roast. Smooth, slick and soft. Hoppy finish. The guy is a genius!

Bottle courtesy of JulienHuxley, thanks! Pretty much black (not a surprise, I guess)., nice brown head with massive lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate covered pine needles. Taste is spiced, roasted and peppery cocoa, almost like a mole sauce. Really tasty.

Leighton (11848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruce’s, London during The Stouts Tasting, Pt. II - one of my contributions to this little soirée. Many thanks to Mom and Dad for picking this up. Pours deep brown with a tight, khaki cream head. Nose holds loads of juicy pine, grapes, ripe berries, oaky red wine, subtle roast. Medium to big sweet flavor, dried and burnt wood, dark sugars, raisins, dry cocoa, burnt grass, burnt pine. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, plenty of burnt wood dryness, dried dark fruits, burnt pine, toasty bread. Lots of dry, vinous texture. Great stuff overall. Deep complexity, nice balance.

hopscotch (9498) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head that never fully dissipates. The restrained aroma presents subtle notes of dark chocolate and bong water. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is mostly sweet, furnishing tawny port and dark chocolate. Finishes crisp, sweet and a touch nutty.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house, courtesy of Stephen. Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Tangy, lightly vinous, mild berry, roasty malty, light chocolate, piney, a bit earthy aroma. A touch tart, slightly burnt chocolate malty, mild vanilla, somewhat fruity, earthy flavor with a somewhat bitter, vinous finish.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Well fuck yeah this one is amazing. Almost black with a fluffy light brown head. The nose is a red wine, toasty, chocolate lovers dream. Grassy hops, milk chocolate. And a crazy hint of kids watercolor paint. Flavor is toasty and hoppy. Chocolate, light vinous notes. Resiny finish. Bold yet delicate. Wow.

jtclockwork (8897) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle thanks to Leighton. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of red wine barrel, french oak, roast chocolate, roast vanilla coffee, unsweetened raisins, tangerine peel, piny hops, toasted nuts and light grapefruit. So delicate and beautiful. Medium body. Really takes the style to a whole new level.

500mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Deeper brown to black pour. Perfect 360 mocha foam in sheets. Nose is black pepper, spicy hops, au poivre steak, sharper lemon and key lime/grapefruit. Small vanilla. Taste is dense, aerated, fluffy with red wine barrel, alcoholic heat, black pepper. Palate is dense, bitter, sharp citrus, mild sugar, creamed coffee. Hazelnut and coffee abound with no harsh roast and no soil/earth. Very nice. Much better than Jim. Probably my favorite for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
