Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque black with a light brown head. Sweet roasty nose, lots of raisins up there too, almost rummy. Solid body, sweet roast, but the dark dried fruits dominate, lots of dark chocolate - even marzipan and cherry, all stuff you wouldn’t really expect in an Imperial Stout. But this is....different. Roasty finish with quite some warming alcohol. Very enjoyable. 030312

Leighton (15396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle at THE Sour and Saison Tasting, London. Thanks to Bruce for keeping the tasting going long after the sours and saisons had been drank. Pours black-brown with a creamy, beige cap. Tangy chocolate nose. Big sweet flavor though not at all cloying, with baking cocoa, moderate alcohol, dark berries and raisins in particular. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with dry chocolate, more dark and dried fruits. Great stuff, nicely balanced.
