harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Black, thin tan head. It’s an ok stout. Pretty solid and decent. Very good in fact and stood out even when getting to the end of the evening.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Opaque dark brown beer. A little light malt on the nose. Sourish malt, but also lacto sweetness and a light bubblegum undertone.

Leighton (22302) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle shared at CBC during my birthday. Pours black-brown with a creamy, beige head. Some roast in the nose, light cocoa. Big sweet flavor, chocolate, some tangy malts, dark fruits, light earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Chocolate roast finish, more mild tangy dark malts, some burnt wood. Lasting cocoa. Decent.

Scopey (15684) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Bottle thanks to Leighton, during his birthday celebrations. It pours jet black, with a thick light tan head. The nose is vanilla, nougat, roasted malt and toasted coconut. The taste is tangy dark fruit, raisin, plum, red grape, chocolate, toast, charcoal, roasted malt and some lingering alcohol warmth. Medium body, with low, prickly carbonation. Decent.

This one pours a huge brown head that fills my glass and gradually fades back to a deep, black brew with shades of brown. At first the nose is yeasty and reminds me of a dark Belgian strong ale. Chocolate, deep fruits (plum and raisin) coffee, a touch of red wine, vanilla, some wood, a bit of alcohol burn and a bit of nutty character. In the mouth it’s more stout-like. smooth with initial bitter chocolate and roasted malts followed by a woody character and then deep fruits and some alcohol on the swallow with lingering coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malt. A bit of a tingling bite in the mouth and warmth in the throat from the alcohol. This is an excellent brew, full of big flavors. May be one of the best English ales I’ve had...

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2010
Big brown coarseish head. Opaque black body. Yeasty chocolate aroma with milky peppery notes. Dry-sweet alcoholic coffee and chocolate taste with sugary choke notes. Mid-to-light body. Soft fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet chocolatey coffee aftertaste with hoppy notes. Interesting and unusual, but too earthy and musty for my taste. (0.5l bottle shared by KnutAlbert.)

fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle 50cl. @ chriso - Night of the Gaylords.
Clear dark brown color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20091229]

OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2010
Bottled. Thanks to Knut Albert for sharing! A brief, dark choco head upon an black opaque, well carbonated body. Yeast and coffee, sweet dark malts and alcohol on the nose. Medium sweet, well roasted malt body, with caramel and choco notes. Both malt- and hop bitterness lingers throughout. Medium body . Chalky mouthfeel. Roasted, hot, light bitter ending. Not top notch, but absolutely drinkable.

Dedollewaitor (16383) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Bottle @ Fastelavnssmagning, Ulfborg. Pours black with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose and taste is roasted and bitter coffee. Chewy and smooth. A bit of ashes and alcohol. Fine. Dry end

KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2010
