cgarvieuk (14196) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2012
bottle ... dark black ... no head ... too much much bourbon vanilla ... dark malt ... mellow roast nose ... dark malt ... light umami ... deep meaty roast ... mellow chocolate ... mellow whisky ... whisky tones are interesting and fairly well balanced ... little too much vanilla again though ... little warming spice

Leighton (10894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 Bottle shared at the Stouts Pt. III & Others: The Brokeback Tasting - London. Massive thanks to Kenny the Great for finding this at the back of his fridge. Pours clear, black brown with a faint, beige foam head. Lots of rich bread, brownies, chocolate cake and soy sauce in the nose. Big sweet flavor, lots of molasses, some brownies, light earth, vanilla, brown sugar, sweet bread. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, tons of creamy dark sugars, boat loads of molasses, moderate chocolate, heavy bread, restrained booze, further vanilla, soft burnt wood. Really delicious stuff. Quite a sipper. I do enjoy a nice, sweet Dark Lord variant.
