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 (1474) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 30, 2012
27/12/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (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 è morbida, setosa, cioccolatosa amara, acidula e una leggera sapidità. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Una gran birra, originale ed elegantissima!

Leighton (15383) - 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 (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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.

Holmen1 (3929) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff mai-12 (italiensk salatbar): tok bare et bilde, noe som tyder på at den var god. Må prøves ved første høve. Iflg andre anmeldelser en smaksrik og lettdrikkellig imp.stout. Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13 (restebordet): god bæraroma og fin karbonering som gir god munnfylde. Deilig og balansert, med stor ettersmak.

Foffern (1499) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle shared with Veitafan. Vintage 2010. Pours a pretty black colour with a frothy brown head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, dark wood, dried fruits, leather, black currant and nuts. The flavour is with more roasted coffee and some barbecue sauce. The mouthfeel is soft and oily, and has a medium bitterness. A wonderful and great imperial stout.

2010 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a massive brown head over a near black hued completely opaque body. Aromas show a lot of roast, chocolate, malty notes, coffee, molasses, light smoke and marshmallow. Very enticing aromas. Flavors are nutty and a bit smokey. Roasty with a bit more of an ashy presence than I like. Good malt character, low esters and low alcohol. Medium bodied, with slightly fuller carbonation.
