hopscotch (9045) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle...This beer rocks!… Pours black with a petite, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is all about fudge baby, fudge. Full-bodied with a silken mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Sweet, deeply-roasted malts followed by a dark mocha finish. Muchos gracias to landhoney for generously providing this bottle to the South Florida Crew!

500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of dark malts, dark fruits, roasted and chocolate malts, pretty sweet, and some light spices. Flavor the same. Smoother texture. A decent imperial stout, but sort of weird.

Leighton (10677) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle shared in an NYC deli down in the Financial District. Classic! Pours deep brown with a thick, foamy tan head. The nose holds lightly tangy dark malts with hints of burnt wood and chocolate. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with rich fruits, milk chocolate, subtle roasted malts, burnt marshmallows. Full bodied with fine carbonation and a very creamy texture. Faint warmth to finish with rich cocoa, creamy mousse, milky chocolate, dark cake, mild licorice. Decadent and well put together. Quite drinkable.
