Poured from a 2011 vintage, 25 cl bottle. Batch 100, thanks Gunnar! Aroma is sweet with moderately strong chocolate notes and medium light roast with faint smoke. Some tobacco and leather notes. Cherry, plum and prune esters. Pours black with some dark brown highlights on the edges. Small, faint, dark tan head recedes quickly to the edges. Light lacing and moderately long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with a lot of dark chocolate. Light roast with a medium light smoke note. Faint peat smoke. Medium bitterness and a faint alcohol spice. Medium light tobacco and leather. Light anise with faint plum and prune. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice, enjoyable stout with some really nice character. Rather dry finish and a touch watery than I would expect for a stout this size. Nice, complimentary smoke and roast notes with good tobacco and leather character. Nice complexity without any need for barrels.

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, alcohol, brown sugar, caramel and hint of soya sauce. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, roasted, licorice and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

Aroma of espresso and dried prunes. Dark and lovely oily texture. Almost no Head. Flavour is roasted espresso and bitter chocolate. A heavey stout with a rich mouth feel. Perfect to light sweet desserts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (17210) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during the Gunnar Tasting. Vintage 2011. Big thanks to Gunnar himself for this one! Pours clear, dark brown with a creamy, beige head. The nose is all torched earth, leather fruits, tar and baking cocoa. Light to medium sweet flavor with burnt wood, bittersweet chocolate and prominent earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with lots of dirt, char and bitter cocoa. Decent.

Quite black. The aroma is rich, with lots of chocolate, rich earthy, slightly hoppy nose. Inky, soft, fruity, intense dark chocolate, lots of acidity (dark orchard fruit). Good strong porter.

Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell cheers to Gunnar. Pours very dark brown with a small khaki head leaving nice lacing. Nose is all about the ash and liquorice. Big charry undertones throughout with mild aniseed and a nice hint of cream. Dry and slightly powdery finish. Nice stuff
