Thijs (15) - - AUG 21, 2012
Dark brown with fine tan head. First whiff of the aroma was red wine, but it quickly almost disappears and the aroma becomes malty sweet, chocolate. Taste is sweet, soft, caramel, butter, a little liquorice. Nice brew, but a little to sweet for my liking. Would categorize it as an imperial stout.

Zekada (412) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is thin and has a notable yeast scent. Taste is pleasant and not very strong, some brown sugars and malts. Palate is thin and a bigger mouth feel would be nice. Overall a decent beer though not very special.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle split at LKS Towers, thanks to Leighton, 05/05/15. Light black with a decent tan covering. Nose is rich fruit, toffee fudge, chocolate, light spice, dates. Taste comprises sweet malt, biscuit, toffee, light spice, chocolate. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light charr in a drying close. Ok impy, not overly complex but a drinkable offering.

The_Osprey (2937) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks to LKS. Very dark brown, small foamy brown head, light lacing. Aroma is toffee, tobacco, yeast, metallic, a hint of vinegar I thought. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is dry and yeasty, some smoke and tobacco, dry finish. Not bad.

TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. A strong aroma of chocolate and malt, weak alcoholic and sour, some raisins. The foamy-creamy head has a normal size with a long duration. The body is black. The taste is very malty, chocolate, a light bitter finish. The body is medium strong, very creamy and soft with a soft finish.

Leighton (13647) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle shared in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours deep brown with a frothy beige head. The nose has so e dark fruits, subtle cocoa, mild roast. Medium sweet flavor with further dark fruits, prunes, raisins, faint chocolate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation and velvety texture. Nicely balanced on the finish, lots more ripe dark fruits, raisins, prunes, fruitcake, bread, slight cocoa. Really tasty overall. Not very ’stouty’, but quite good stuff nonetheless.

Scopey (8552) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle at Leighton’s. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet, juicy, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, dried fruits, candy and plum skin. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, plum, date, raisin, roasted, toast, light spice and cocoa with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation, OK at best.

heman (154) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Beżowa piana była wysoka, jednak szybko opadła. Piwo ma nieprzejrzyście czarną barwę. Aromat nie jest już tak skory to ataku, raczej trzeba się doszukiwać nut typowych dla stout-ów. Pojawiło się kakao z cukrem i karmel, tak na pierwszy niuch zapach skojarzył mi się ze schwarzbier-em. Gdzieś tam w tle delikatnie pojawiła się czekolada w płynie i lekki powiew rozpuszczalnikowy. W smaku piwo jest podobnie płaskie, wyczuć możemy głównie kakao i lekko słodką, mleczną czekoladę w płynie. W tle delikatny przypalony karmel. Finisz to niska goryczka, wydaje się być alkoholowego pochodzenia, Po każdym łyku w gardle pozostaje posmak kakao z cukrem.

Dark beer with some mahogany hues and a foamy beige head. Nose of light toast and and some caramel corn. Toffee sweetness with some puffed wheat, sweetened coffee, lightly burnt toast and chocolate in th finish. Decent imperial stout if a bit light for the style.

kalervo (811) - FINLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Maistiainen Maljassa 3/2015. A bit too sweet and fruity for me, still not bad beer of course. Not as solid as imperial stout could be.
