Leighton (14043) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle shared in London - sourced from Etre. Pours oily black with a thick, creamy brown head. Burnt wood in the nose, dry cocoa, roast. Medium sweet flavor with good char and roast, dark chocolate, baking cocoa, some scorched earth, raisins. Medium to full bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, lightly warming, with rich and rounded chocolate, more raisins, leather, char. Excellent stuff.

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours jet black with a sturdy dark tan head. The nose is Black Forest gateaux, rich, oily, umami, glazier cherry, Florentines, salted caramel, sweet red wine and calvados. The taste is bitter, rich roast, charred wood, earth, mild acidity, jammy fruits, burnt eccles cake, mild acidity, peppery spice and warming alcohol with a dry, charred finish. Medium - full body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Rich and decadent.

Idiosynkrasie (4923) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
250ml bottle. Jet black colour with thick, huge, frothy, slowly sinking down, minimally lacing, tan head. Dark malty, marmite aroma, woody overtones. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, notes of treacle, hints of marmite, red wine, blue berries, some wood. Inharmonious, unbalanced.

Yorker (1604) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
25 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a little sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, alcohol, and liquorice - with a bitter finish.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light oak notes and black chocolate notes. Taste is a nice mix of black chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes with light residual sugar notes and some oak notes rounding off any rough edges form this beer. I could also detect some light smoky notes in this beer. Body is pretty full with good carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. I really enjoy the Nogne imperial stout beers and this is no exception.

Bouteille de 25cl Batch nr : 723/731. BB : 01/12/15. Brygget : 01/12/11. Une bière noire avec une mousse brune. Un nez intense de chocolat, de fruits noires. La bouche est aussi intense, moyennement digeste, un peu d’alcool, le bois n’est pas trop présent.

SlovakSniper (3908) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Batch nr : 723/731. BB : 01/12/15. Brygget : 01/12/11. Un liquide brun très foncé aux contours comme du sang séché. Au nez, richesse vanillée et caramélisée du fût. Chocolat et alcool de fruits foncés. Pointe de sauce soya. Touche de bacon et/ou de tabac. Sur les papilles, malts noirs, fumée perçante, touche salée, prunes trempées dans l’alcool, effet tannique et vineux. Bouche liquoreuse et, à la limite, collante. Pétillement plutôt bas. Finale jouée sur des notes amères qui se réchauffent considérablement au fil du temps. Buvablité modérée. Un point de plus pour le génial format de 25 cl.
