Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Growler shared in London - picked up at the brewery five days beforehand. Pours rich brown with a thick, frothy tan cap. Great aroma, filled with milk chocolate, toasted nuts, hefty roasted malts and burnt marshmallows. Medium sweet flavor with dry milk chocolate, good roastiness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great balance in the finish, more milk chocolate, adequate roast, rich toasted bread. Delicious and highly drinkable. Very solid.

500mL can, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lactose upfront, followed by a touch of vanilla and cocoa. Flavour brings out lactose and peanut butter in great harmony. Smooth and luxurious on the palate. Really good stuff.

Can shared by phaleslu. Poured clear dark brown color with medium brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium roasted coffee, chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a good stout.

Dogbrick (11482) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Sample at the Northeastern Brewery (ME/MA) Tasting on 08/09/2015. Dark brown color with a medium khaki head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt character, with some chocolate in the background. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Better than the higher ranked Ninkasi Noir, even without coffee. Nose and feel and look are all nice, but the flavor is near perfect for the style. The balance between roasted malt, bitter sweet and smoothly lactic is fantastic.
