Bottle 0,5 l. Brown black, small beige head. Nose is nicely malty, sourish, some liqourice. Maltiness is nice. Flavor is kind of mild, maltiness is there, some berries and liqourice. Very alcoholic and not much body to back it up. Bitter and no sweetness really. A bit woody maybe, but the bitterness and alcohol rule here. Didn’t really enjoy it, in fact I ended up drainpouring third of the bottle as I couldn’t finish it before it got stale in 3 days.

Black with tan head. Moldy basement, spicy alcohol, leather and brown sugar. Spicy, roasted malt, vanilla, coffee and mold. Overall: great experience! Mold blends well with stout.

Bottle from notes (also recently popped one). Pours a very dark brown to black color with a small khaki head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark caramel, dark fruit, raisins, dark chocolate, wood, blackberry, coffee, molasses, some alcohol but it is mostly warming, with a medium plus body. Solid, but can get just as solid with less cost.

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Thick opaque dark brown, no head and lean tannins. Thick set liquorice, rich vinious dark malt and very very faint corn. Initial taste is dark pudding, lightly sweet and oily and middles more salty liquorice. Falls into a slick oily mouthfeel that masks the ABV smoothly. Finish is deep soy sweetness, rich roast bitterness smothered away for the linger and a dubious threat if that alcohol. Cheers Craig.

Bottle, Poncey Southerner Tasting

Leighton (14040) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle shared at Garvie’s - big thanks to the host. Pours oily black with a small brown foam head. The nose has lots of charred wood, iodine, dark cocoa, earth. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich earthy roast, more char, baking cocoa, burnt sugars, slight vanilla. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Quite nicely balanced on the finish - especially considering the strength - with plenty of peat, cocoa, roast, earth, some leathery dark fruits. Very good overall.

500 ml bottle. Black as night body with dark brown head. Aromas of coffee, alcohol and maybe some earthy notes. Taste is bittersweet, with black chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, alcohol . Bitter aftertaste, pretty sticky mouthfeel. Medium to full body with low carbonation.
