Idiosynkrasie (3626) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2013
330ml bottle. Pitch black colour with small, reawakening, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, brown head. Spicy, fruity and sourish aroma has notes of blue grapes, soy sauce, balsamico, curry, ketchup. Taste is dry, tart, subtle sweet chocolate notes, hints of blue grapes, fruit parings, cautious hints of curry ketchup, flat carbonation, oily texture, sticky palate. Complex, unusual, but nothing I’m crazy about.

Expensive bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam, vintage 2011
33cl, batch PPAP04-1111, bbe 2015

Black color, with medium-high carbonation and very large head. Very interesting aroma, with roasted malts, dark chocolate, wood oven bread, light spices, and light acidity. Well structured, but with a lean and rather dry mouthfeel; good dry flavor of roasted malts, not aggressive, perfectly blended with a moderate sourness, mild vinous character, some dark chocolate. Smoother in the end.
Excellent; elegant.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 30, 2012
27/12/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fą (handpump). Nera, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino scuro, leggera e stentata, non molto persistente. Al naso note di cioccolato fondente, leggero affumicato, una punta acidula. in bocca č morbida, setosa, cioccolatosa amara, acidula e una leggera sapiditą. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Una gran birra, originale ed elegantissima!

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle at the Pre-Christmas CBC - Clerkenwell Tasting, London. Thanks to Colin for bringing this back from his Italian travels. Pours oily, black-brown with a tight, beige cream head. Burnt wood in the nose, light tangy fruits, cocoa. Rich bitter cocoa flavor, light burnt rubber, dirt, roast. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Dry finish with bittersweet cocoa, dark sugars, earth and dirt. Interesting impy stout. Not straight-ahead, so nice to something a little different.

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle at pre Xmas tasting (Dommus Birrae, Roma) - 21/12/12. Mid black with a thin tan head that retains well. Nose is bitter roast malts, sour tones, touch of smoke. Taste follows, bitter chocolate, dark malts. Medium bodied with light (over!) spritzyness in the carbonation, dry finish. A bit of a let down to be honest.
