Leighton (20536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Outrageous. Pours dark, ruby-brown with a moderate tan head. Some dark fruits and light booze in the nose. Flavor is sweet, somewhat malty, plenty of plum, grape, brown sugar, and a bit of chocolate towards the end. Medium in body, modestly carbonated, a little vinous. A lot delicious.

onceblind (8892) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Semi clear dark nutty amber with a lovely bourbon-full nose of brown sugar and dark oaked vanilla, with some dark dates and cherry and caramel awesomeness. Immaculate. Flavor is equally so. Lots of cherry and caramel and vanilla and brown sugar and sweetness. Awesome levels of sweet bourbony booze and oak, with a wonderful stone fruit and sweet deep maltiness. And pecan. Just perfect.
