Leighton (15317) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session II. Pours oily black with a strong, brown foam cap. Lots of syrupy chocolate in the aroma, some vanilla. Hugely sweet flavor, lots of chocolate candies, burnt sugar, vanilla cream. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Syrupy. Moderately warming finish, tons of sticky dark sugars, more chocolate syrup. Rich, very, very, very sweet. Decadent stuff but getting through more than a few ounces would be a chore.

One hell of an Imperial Stout on tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade. THe pour is a completely opaque black with a dark tan or brown head floating atop creamy and dense. The aroma is outstanding and almost too intense with big alcohol whiffs and a huge coffee and espresso aroma. The flavour has a hint of brown sugar sweetness with a bit of dark chocolate flavours before the intense roast and robust roasted espresso beans take over towards the finish. This is an intense beer with an awesome coffee flavour but despite that, the mouthfeel is silken smooth and creamy. This is a pure delight!

CBC. Great to finally catch up with this beast! Opaque black beer, big tan head. Palate is soft and surprisingly light. Very sweet dark malt. Touches of wood and lactose. Sweet coffee. Semi dry finish. A super rich sweet treat.

Bottle at Scopey’s 5K. Sweet rich chocolate and dark chocolate. Nice jammy fruits and a little coffee. Very light touch of spice. Drinking well below the abv.

Black with a light brown, lasting head. Overwhelming aroma, fresh hops, tobacco, citrus and flowers. Sharp bitterness attack, with some alcohol presence. 4.3

2013 The Remake: Lots and lots of cocoa powder, along with dark chocolate and plenty of alcohol. Sugary sweet flavour with cane sugar and cocoa powder

Tap @ CBC 2013. The pour’s black with a tight tan head. Pretty attractive pour. The nose is very, very sweet. Loads of glazed donut. Burnt brown sugar. Lactose. Coffee cake. Chocolate fudge. The taste is vanilla, toffee. Sweet milk chocolate. Quite sugary, a bit hot. Oily body, thick. Decent, but a couple of ounces is plenty.

_angst_ (3840) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours oily pitch black with a small creamy mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of creamy lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, caramel, burnt cookies, toffee, charred wood, minerals, butterscotch hard candy, sweetened dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, alcohol and hints of roasted nuts, dried dark fruits and smoke. Taste is very sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, sweetened dark roast coffee, burnt caramel, dried dark fruits, dark chocolate and alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, oily, boozy sticky sweet and full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dried dark fruits, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, wood, alcohol and hints of roasted nuts and port wine. Pretty good but way to sweet to be really good...
