UPDATED: APR 19, 2010 Bottleof vintage 2007. Wow, what a fantastic beer! Pours a nice opague black color with no light coming through it what so ever, with almost no head, just a small tan lacing. The aroma is very powerful and complex. I get alot of whiskey, also really dark espresso coffee, roasted and charcoaly malts, dark fruits and some alcohol. Flavour is agian full of whiskey with a ton of deeply roasted malts and alot of very dark espresso coffee. i also get charcoal, some over ripe dark fruits especially dates, chocolate, wood, vanilla and molasses. Deffinetley not boozy, but some alcohol is present, but it is very smooth. The body is full with a nice and creamy mouthfeel, that completley coats your mouth. Overall a very complex Imperial Stout, with alot of whiskey in both flavor and aroma. Deffinetley worth seeking/checking out!

bottle - (asheft) black and oily beer with a thin beige head. Aroma has tons of vanilla and oak! Flavour is complex. Some spices like cinnamon, lots of vanilla and coffee. Medium bitterness. High alcohol is hidden behind a nice maltiness. Full body.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 RBESG Sheffield 2009 Grand Tasting at the Harlequin. Vintage 2006. I was more than happy to bring 2 bottles to the Grand tasting since i had a few spare. Pitch black with no head at all. Wonderful aroma dominated by coffee, caramel, raisins, prunes and alcohol notes. Full bodied with roasted malt flavors, ripe fruit, some port. Very complex and tasty. I could drink this every day !

Right, the correct ambience and surroundings are nicely in place. The wife and littleun are away for the night. The lights are dimmed in my back bar, mellow tunes are permeating the room. The scene is set, the best beer in Britain deserves the utmost respect.Ok, let’s get this bastard open! Blacker than night pour with no head. My word, the nose from this one can be sniffed from the other side of the room! What an aroma! Dark chocolate, coffee, wood, very peaty, caramel, roasted malts, rose petals, banana, toffee. Quite an oily texture. Rich, warming flavours of burnt caramel, full on dark chocolate, coffee notes, toffee, caramel, quite vinous. The barrel aging shines through in this one like a thousand supernovas. Peaty, dry mouthfeel. Very pleasing, warming effect. Exceedingly complex brew. Decided to drink this ’young’ and am extremely impressed with the results. Huge alcohol burn in the finish, warms the throat and reaches right down into the recesses of the body gently massaging every conceivable orafice. Wonderful beer! Deserves it’s praise.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2010
Courtesy of Cgarvieuk, thanks Craig! It’s a vintage 2005. The color is pitch black and it has a small, dark brown and creamy head. The aroma has notes of oak, roasted malt, licorice, dark fruits, berries and vanilla. The mouthfeel is nice and oily. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, oak, vanilla, licorice, light soy sauce, dark fruits, berries and the finish is dry with a lot of licorice. It’s a very harmonic and nice beer!
