McNeillR (1391) - 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 (12221) - 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.

Bottle #04783
From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, from a 500mL bottle that I shared. Pours inky black with a thin brown head that slowly disappears to nothing. The nose has a heat kick with molasses, dark chocolate, and a touch of smoke. The flavor is quite a bit smokier with the same lightly sweet molasses and bitter dark chocolate and coffee. The body is massive with light carbonation and a long dark chocolate and bitter coffee finish, with plenty of alcoholic heat.
