Scopey (11951) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thick tan head. The nose is chocolate gateaux, roasted malt, coffee liqueur, cocoa powder, caramel and toffee. The taste is rich-roasted coffee, roasted malt, bitter chocolate, caramel, toffee, varnish, meatiness, charcoal, rich chocolate, spice and alcohol warmth. Full body, fine carbonation and luxurious mouth-feel. Great balance. Not normally my sort of thing, but thought this was very well done.

jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Deep brown with a massive, thick tan head. The nose is sugar, cinnamon, some espresso coffee and spicy chilis. There’s malty deep toffee, rum, chocolate. This smells hot and sweet indeed. The taste is hot sugary vanilla, some roasted coffee and chocolate. Notes of baked banana and caramel. This beer’s very sweet, but balanced out by some big roasty characters on the lightly spicy finish. Full and thick body, sticky. Overall, quite nice, but I would only want a few ounces of this. What started as a very high rating got marked down as I worked my way through this overly sweet beer.
