Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Keg at the Tap East Birthday Bash - Stratford, London. Pours dark brown with a fine, beige foam head. The nose has lots of toasty malts and vanilla. Medium sweet flavor with more vanilla, light chocolate, mellow roasted malts, some dark fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Superb balance on the finish, some light dry and burnt wood, chocolate, dry vanilla. Just excellent balance overall. Wonderfully drinkable and nicely nuanced.

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2014
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade. Pours deep black with no real head. Aroma has oak, mild coffee and a touch of vanilla. Not nearly as interesting as the original. Low, to no carbonation, fine oily and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, sweet vanilla, a touch of coffee, very sweet. Mild bitterness. Doesn?t do much good to the original.

Bottle at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to Paulo for grabbing this one, 16/01/14. Light black with a moderate tan covering that dissipates to a swirl and edgework. Nose is roast malt, coffee, earthy cocoa, light Jimml, dark toffee fudge. Taste comprises roasty tones, chocolate, coffee, sublte Beam, brown sugars. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, pitch perfect carbs. Very easy drinker, nice to have a solid flavoursome BA stout in the 7% range!
