Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours clear, deep brown with a small, creamy tan cap. Loads of well toasted pine in the nose, burnt toast, some earth. Medium sweet flavor with heavy burnt bread, bitter burnt pine, some baking cocoa, burnt grass, some minerals. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous, sticky burnt pine to finish, further burnt toasty bread, some earth, subtle grapefruit, some minerals. Pretty tasty overall, if a bit ballsy.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 1, 2013
Draught at "Italia Beer Festival 2013" - Milano.
Dark amber color, deep and fraught aspect, optimal creamy and foamy head of long resistance. Complex and roast aroma, winous aged notes, rumors of roast malt, chocolate, hop. Very round and solid body, much mellow at start with decided hoppy and cellar notes. Good bitterness final.

Abio (1616) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2013
Black beer with an ok head. Good grassy hoppy, and roasted malts. Decent combined, and just misses something extra for me.

Taboada (348) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle tasted on Rome. I like the dark colour, the sweet aroma and the big and creamy head. The toasted grains define his flavour. Nice one Italy!!!

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft pour at Chez Moeder Lambic. It has a dark dark body that supports a tall mocha head of foam that leaves behind sheets of lacing. The aroma offers up an inviting mix of dark roasted malts, pine hops and then a bit of sweet malts to round things out. The taste is similar delivering fairly rich dark roasted malts and pine hops that move into a citrus hop note and some chocolate malts that show up near the finish. Solid brew where the roastiness and hoppiness play very well together.
