65 cl bottle @ home (2014 vintage). Pours black with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice, and tobacco - with a slightly bitter finish.

Good standard IStout appearance, dense and creamy tan head, nice lacing. Intense, mighty mouthfeel and aftertaste. Noticeable more alcoholic and dry than the previous Four Roses one. Robust, some chocolate notes, again strong wood notes. Robust.

Samuel214 (1087) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2017
Smakprov på Ölbaren NK, Stockholm. Flaska från 2015. Svart med litet, försvinnande brunt skum. Något större doft av bourbon, ekfat, lite lönnsirap, kolaremmar och en liten ton av lakrits. Större, klibbig kropp med tydlig fatkaraktär som liksom lägger sig som en hinna på tungan. Stor, komplex smak av bourbon, ekfat, lönnsirap, lite kärva och rostade toner, nästan lätt rökig med toner av chark, kandisocker. Alkoholen värmer och ger en lätt spritig avslutningen, där även lite beska tittar fram och balanserar upp sötman. Här även en lätt ton av äppelsyra och grönt äppelskal. Väl avvägt, bra balans och komplexitet från fatlagring. Ligger kvar i munnen en bra stund. Riktigt gott.

Scopey (14505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
Bottle shared by Colin at Leighton’s 20K tasting. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The aroma is actually quite soft, sweet, rich roasted malt, green banana, vanilla, toffee, marshmallow, light sugar, spice and bourbon. The taste is rich roasted malt, slick, charred wood, leather, rocky road, warming alcohol, vanilla, bourbon, earth, spice, varnish, wood and banana split with a warming finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and slick mouth - feel. These Eclipse stouts rarely disappoint. Tasty stuff.

Habanero (4639) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - APR 17, 2017
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit notes, bread, bourbon, alcohol notes, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Leighton’s 20K at his posh new gaff! Thanks to Colin. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, a little bitterish dark chocolate. Whiskey and spicy red berries. Touch of wood. Tangy fruits. Very nice, very drinkable.

Pours opaque black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate and molasses, chocolate covered apple. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is chocolate, resinous, some alcohol spice, earthy dry and very woody into the finish. Very woody. Nice beer. (3.9)
