McNeillR (1329) - SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Le Brewdog Leeds Thick opaque brown ran ringed head and a wee effection of brown film. Rich Soily vanilla and a little boozy as you lift to sip. Slips down so easily the other end. Edgey sweetness, the slightest balsamic grip and steely malt and almost tart middle. Really wholesome. Creamy and a little less viscous than in bottle, despite the warming up effort off Keg. Finishes creamy coconut vanilla then an Elbow greased bittering burn. Yeow. Linger is lush, green malt and the Darkest choc malt spice. Keg, Brewdog Leeds.

Beergaard (124) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2014
Pitch blach, thick and sticky, beige head. Roasted aroma and taste of coffee, bitter chocolate, some dark fruit. Alcohol is well hidden. Very nice low-medium carbonation that fits the beer perfectly. Could have been more complex - still a bloody good beer though.

Very black. Brown head. Lots of roasted almost coffee like flavours. A bit too overpowering for my taste. Medium body.

Kauge (366) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 23, 2014
33 cl bottle from... Pothole / Koht most probably (around close to or above € 5 I think). BB Oct 2023 - I dare not wait. Pours a viscous dark brown with little tan head that dropped fast (poured into a cognac glass). Nose is thick, chocolaty, alcoholic, brandy-like, some dried plums, plus coffee... Not as multilayered as, say, Founders’ Breakfast Stout I had earlier. Taste is just infuckingcredible... humongous thickness carrying the impressive ABV very well, huge bitterness on the other hand enhancing the alcoholic tingle, massive chocolaty and coffee-like sensations, kind of salty even. Sticky texture and full body, a lovely smooth, soft and full palate with very little carbonation.

I haven’t had many beers as good as this. Llllll-ove it! Perfect dessert beer to sip for couple hours.
