The_Osprey (3839) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm. 2006 vintage, poured into tulip. Black, not much head, just a beige ring. Lots of port in the smell. Full bodied and semi sweet. Lots of roasted barley, a bit plasticy, alcohol comes through and is noticeable. Raisins in the finish. No real bitterness. Decent stuff.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Vintage 2006. 250mL bottle at Akkurat, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of rich dark fruits, some light roasted malts, and more dark fruits - very fruity. Flavour brings out heavy roasted malt, a little feint licorice, some dark fruits, and more roasted malt. Remarkably complex, with an exceptional depth. There is a syrupy quality to it as well, which would normally not work for me, but in this sense it is incorporated beautifully and only adds to the complexity. In general, there is an amazing balance of roast and dark fruits. Can only imagine what the Kaggen! is like!

Leighton (14703) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle at The Big Stout Tasting, London - many thanks to Ken for providing this major player. Vintage 2008. Pours dark brown with a rich, brown foam head. Musty dark malt nose with burnt bread, wood and dark chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor, lightly tangy, with burnt/ wet wood, strong earthy bitterness, dark baking cocoa, some meat. Full bodied with fine, chewy carbonation. Dark sugars on the finish, brownies, dark earth. Rich and full character. Nice.

2008 Bottle @ THE Stouts Tasting. Cheers to Ken for the pour! The appearance is deep brown with a tiny espresso head. The nose is huge roasty chocolate, rich coffee. Sweet, earthy toffee. Just a hint of dark fruit - raisins and plums. The taste is softly vinous, red grape, more raisin. Rich coffee cinnamon bun. Plenty of roasted chocolate malts. Burnt brown sugar. Mild soy sauce. Full, thick body, soft carb. Plenty of sugar. Overall, quite nice, but there’s a mild raisin-like tang to this that I don’t love. Still, quite good.

thedm (5205) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 1, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of frothy dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a good lacing. The nice aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish roasted malt aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of roasted malt brown malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

suprchunk (2684) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Poured at Borefts. Black. Small brown head. No lacing. Raisin and plums on the nose with big hints of molasses and chocolate. Sweet molasses taste. Big booze in the nose and throat. Not bad. Lots of sugary sweetness left on the lips.

’07 Bottle. Pour is dark brown, red edges, virtually no head. The nose is very big and rich with roasted malt and a ton of chocolate cake. A bit of alcohol with light smokey peat. Taste is very rich chocolate cake, notes of roasted malt and a touch of coffee rind. Full creamy body, lingering roasty bitterness in the finish and light malt sweetness.

teddybeer (2847) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2012
[Thanks to oh6gdx]. 25cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a quickly dissapearing tan head, great viscosity while poured. Aroma has toasted and roasted malts notes, licorice, light alcohol, coffee notes. Flavor has notes of dark coffee, alcohol, bourbon, light cocoa notes, black chocolate, wooden hints. The final has notes of dark coffee with an excellent sensation and duration in the aftertaste. Very dense on palate, creamy and smooth. Light alcoholic sensation that is hidden by the coffee and black chocolate notes. Carbonation is low. Body is high. Texture is oily.
