fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Draught at Danske Ølentusiasters Ølfestival 2012, Copenhagen
Black color, with brown creamy head. Moderate aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, ass. Strong flavor of dark chocolate, but also a bit too much roasted malt, liquorice; salty finish; good body strength, and the mouthfeel is quite round thanks to some residual sweetness.
Good, not impressive.

Draft courtesy of the Ladies of Nogne O, Ilsa and Ingrd - thanks! Murky brown color, small beige head. Aroma of slightly sour coffee grounds and pumpernickel bread. Taste is sour plums, raisins, coffee, subtle cocoa. Nicely complex and full of character.

Bottle. It pours a dense, almost creamy, tan head of two-finger size. Both lasting and lacings producing. Not black in color, but pretty close. The aroma is on the dark side, as expected, with roasted malts, mocha, milk chocolate and some alcohol notes and a pleasant piney, citrus peel-like hoppyness. Mellow and pleasant. Really pleasant actually, even though I’m not in the mood for dark, heavy ales for the moment. The flavor continues what the aroma started, it’s oily and smooth on the palate, although a bit warming. Soft carbonation, and towards the end the bitterness adds another dimension to the flavor. As mentioned, I’m not in the mood to drink on the dark side these days, but I certainly enjoyed it anyway. 120322

Leighton (14303) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Day Two. Pours black with a creamy, beige head. Has quite a fruity nose, some ripe grapes and berries, moderate roast. Medium to big sweet flavor with plenty of chocolaty dark malts, burnt wood and a bit of whisky-like hard alcohol. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with restrained cocoa, some dark, dried fruits, bitter cocoa. It’s a nice beer and well-rounded, but just doesn’t have anything to push it into ’great’ territory.

Dark brown color, steady creamy brown head. There is rye in the aroma, some toasted notes and light sweet chocolate. Medium-bodied and soft palate. Cocoa, milkyness, some rye and light alcoholic bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant.
