BlazerT (500) - POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Sensoric glass. Pitch black with medium, light brown head. Lacing better than in non-BA edition, medicore head retention. Aroma comparing to regular version is more fruit - dark fruits. It really pairs with roasted malts character. Taste is semi-dry, sligthly bitter with some nice semi-sweet fruity notes. Medium body, oily/creamy texture, average carbonation finish is semi-sweet and astringent. In overall the regular, little boring version of this beer is broken by really kicking BA character. Once again really good experiment from mikkeller. Worth trying.

Leighton (18529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Thanks to Kenneth for this one! Pours black-brown with a frothy beige head. The nose holds tar, tangy dark wood, dried fruits. Medium sweet flavor, quite boozy, with dry burnt wood, ash and char; you get the point. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more burnt wood, toasted marshmallows. Good, but not great.

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2015
bottle from kihoskh, the best equipped kiosk ever, anywhere. pitch dark, smooth brown head. aroma of spices, belgian yeasts, roasted malts, wood, i guess grand marnier too. flowers from hops. a bit messy in the aroma profile, but also quite complex. flavor is roasted malts, flowers from the hops, faint wood and very faind grand marnier from the barrelling. Taste is okay, but given the last two stronger imp stouts i tasted this is quite a drawback. (8 wired bumaye, hoppin frog doris ba) by itself a tasty beer, and i think this flavor profile do well for a christmas beer, being quite easy drinking.

Habanero (4035) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours black with an average, creamy, beige head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, chocolate, wood and orange. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carbonation. An excellent Porter.

Idiosynkrasie (6423) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
375ml bottle. Jet black colour with huge, thick, creamy, fully lasting, excellently lacing, tan head. Already room-filling orange liqueur aroma while pouring; closer examination delivers roasty and roasted-grainy dark malty notes, hints of coffee, some wood; less intense and/or later a touch of smoke, treacle, liquorice, flashes of chocolate and orange liqueur; permanently accompanied by somehow unpleasant, alcoholic, booze overtones. Taste is dry, dusty, roasty dark malty, dark chocolate, wood, paper, dry cocoa; minimally alcoholic.
