harrisoni (13632) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
355ml bottle from Utobeer drunk at home. Says after dinner drink but i had it as an aperatif. Black beer with lasting tan head. Not a huge aroma. Big bit syrupy. Yes some choc some coffee. Not exactly intense. Definitely a bit boozy. I was expecting a bit more. Ok though

Leighton (10868) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle sample at Nejaime’s, MA. Pours rich brown with a big, beige foam head. Moderate roast nose, some chocolate. Wow flavor with more moderate roast, some charred malts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, hints of bourbon. Medium bodied with average creamy carbonation. Warm finish with lots of dark chocolate, burnt sugar, charred wood, light burnt grass bitterness. Superb beer. Great balance all around.

Viscous and black on the pour with a finger of tan head. Rich oatmeal and toffee sweetness on the nose. Plenty of roasted malt, a nice creamy chocolate character, coffee, and some hints of vanilla to it as well. The flavor is pleasantly sweet with chocolate, toffee, and vanilla notes. A moderate roasted malt flavor along with a touch of coffee give a light bitterness. There’s a touch of licorice on the finish. Carbonation is a little high for me, but nothing that ruins the beer.
