Bottel at CBC Islington - thanks to LKS. It pours hazy deep brown with a small beige head. The aroma is earthy roast, toasty, cocoa, charred wood, rocky road, cocio and a touch of ash. The taste is dry, bitter, oily, rich roasted malt, slick, brown bread, chocolate cake, dried fruits, fruit cake and toasted nut with an oily and chewy finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Slick and toothy stuff. Pretty nice overall.

zoucrew102 (2104) - - APR 6, 2014
Bomber, cellared for about a year and a half. Rich bourbon aroma with notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Pours pitch black colored with a thin brown head and no lacing. Chocolate malt with sweet dark fruit notes. Finishes with nice bourbon notes but with a bit of alcohol burn mixed into the nice finish. Good porter, but could have aged longer to get further reduce the alcohol, but still very good.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a creamy beige head. Nose is bourbon, caramel cream, peanut, soy, dark malts, coffee and hints of toffee and wood. Taste is creamy caramel and tiramisu, wood, bourbon, peanuts, coffee, dark chocolate and hints of toffee, biscuits and dark malts. Thick, velvety mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A solid, thick and sweet BA imperial porter, very nice indeed.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and liquorice. Semi sweet, but rounds out well balanced. Has a very light sour touch as well, maybe due to the high levels of roasted malts. Full bodied with medium carbonation.
