Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Thanks to Leighton for the pour! Deep brown with a creamy tan head. Burnt Cadbury’s Whole Nut Bar. A bit of butterscotch hot booziness. Oatmeal cookies. Similar flavor. Flecks of burnt wood, toffee. Roasted nut and hints of vanilla. Full body, oily. Siren continue to impress.

Idiosynkrasie (6513) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
330ml bottle [7.4% abv as per label]. Jet black colour with late awakening, small, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma with hints of oak, leather, a touch of treacle, vanilla, very cautious hints of mustard and freshly compounded concrete. Taste is slightly dry, subtle dark malty sweetness, notes of treacle, vanilla, oak, leather; oily texture, unbelievably smooth, soft, silky and slightly sticky palate. Man! F***ing awesome! Rich like an Impy Stout, comparatively easy drinkable, and so charmingly soft without being flat - excellent!

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of bourbon, wood, oak, roasted malts and earthy notes. Taste is silky smooth, sweetish oaky and woody with some bourbon and roastiness. Finish is smooth, silky and sweetish with some oakiness and bourbony notes. Pretty smooth stout.

olio (9367) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours gorgeous black color with a large, thick beige head. Aroma is just bursting with vanilla and roasted malts, faint tar notes, dark chocolate and some licorice also. The aroma is simply amazing. Almost creamy smooth palate from all the vanilla and chocolate on the flavor, some distant port notes on the background, toasty malts with caramel and subtle tar. Medium carbonation, smooth as silk with a very deceptively high drinkability. An excellent dessert stout.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle BB Sep 2014. Black, no real head - just a few bubbles. Aroma - mostly milk chocolate. Touches of bourbon, sour milk and ash. Body is medium, low carbonation, pretty smooth. Taste - soft chocolatey malts, some bourbon and apple. So drinkable. For me, this isn’t as complex or as tasty as the Buffalo Trace version though it is still very good. Siren continue to impress.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
330ml bottle at The New Penguin. Pitch with a loose marbled tan head. Meaty smoked mackerel bourbon nose with burnt custard, blackberry and well-scorched oak. Brilliant incinerated blackberry crumble and custard flavour sweet with oak and bitter with roast. Beautifully smoked Bamberg Bacon, pecan and flamed toffee afters. Genius.
