wedgie9 (1989) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2014
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to Leighton for sharing. Pours dark oily brown with an average brown head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is dry coffee, chocolate brownie, along with some vanilla and coconut oak. The flavor is the same with the chocolate brownie, and even a bit more oak than the nose. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long bourbon brownie finish. Overall, not the darkest stout, more focused on milk chocolate than coffee or dark roast.

From a bottle, shared at ChurchKey, DC, during Zwanze Day. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted grain. Flavors of licorice and tobacco with a bit of funky tartness to it. High carbonation, medium bodied, roasty finish.

Klimaet (155) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle at Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell. Pours pitch and thick black with a thin shortlasting nutty head. Aromas of whisky, nuts, vanilla, coffee, roast and some dark chocolate. Taste is very whisky up front, dark sweet fruits, roast. Whisky stays all the way through. Slightly too much to my taste.

Garrold (1366) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Clear, cola brown. Halo of tan head. Nutty, milk chocolate. Light, roast malt. Light, ground coffee. Taste is fruity dry. Some milk chocolate sweetness. Palate is a tad thin, maybe. More of the chocolate sweetness on the finish, but mostly lingering, light bitter dryness.

dogbomb (944) - ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Dark black with almost no head to speak of until you shake the deep tan around. Nose is peaty, deep, malty, chocolatey, jim beamy, vanilla and wood. First mouthful surprised me - hit the back of my throat and I had a tiny coughing fit! Soon got that under control and went in for a second bite of the cherry. Quite a thick, slick mouthfeel with cream, nuts, alcohol, amaretto, vanilla, oats, jim beam... A sipper with bags and bags of flavour coming out in every mouthfeel. A warmth afterwards, which makes the flavour linger and last. Yummy!

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.
