Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a small, rough beige head. Soft and smooth yet intense Bourbony oak in the nose atop a layer of subtle roasted malt. Full-bodied with a soft carbonation, sweet roast, sweet licorice, plenty of vanilla and dried dark fruits - heavy on the dates and prunes. Again soft and pleasant Bourbon accents and a fairly warming alcohol in the finish without ever getting boozy. Very pleasant, very elegant. 161111

Opaque black beer, short lived tan head. Smooth and almost silky palate. Smooth dark malt. Coffee, mild spice. Slightly tangy and semi sweet bourbon. The famous Hill Farmstead balance - nothing dominates. Finishes semi dry with the mild spice a little more noticeable. Light on its toes and pretty drinkable. Lacks a wow factor and thus not in the highest echelons.

Bottle muled by oteyj, thanks very much! Murky dark maroon color, tiny brown head had to be coaxed. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, chocolate syrup. Taste is whiskey, coffee, vanilla. Slightly too much whiskey, I think, but not bad. Cant tell it apart from an imperial stout.

Leighton (20104) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruces, London during The Stouts Tasting, Pt. II - youre welcome, bros! And thanks to Momma Laura for swinging by Greenboro to grab this. Pours clearish, oily black with a small, tan foam head. Sweet dark malts in the nose, sugary chocolate, burnt wood, robust coffee. Big sweet flavor, ripe dark fruits, rich chocolate cake, brown sugar, mellow earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, lots of sugary dark malts, some coffee, more cake, syrupy chocolate, light earthy bitterness. One of the sweeter beers of the night, but I think its delicious and has enough depth to warrant the sweetness. Excellent.

The aroma shows spicy notes, a bit of alcohol. Most smooth beer, sweet dark chocolate, chili pepper kick, alcohol warmth, coffee, and vanilla beans in the final.
Wonderful, one of the best Imperial Porters, and its amazing that its good batch after batch.

Pitch black color, oily, with small brown head. The aroma is spicy (ancho chilies), with roasted malt, chocolate, wood, nice coffee and some vanilla. Good body, round mouthfeel; strong flavor of dark chocolate, very rich, with moderate but pleasing sweetness, tar and tobacco, vanilla, very light liquorice, some wood; correct bitterness; the final has a light spicy vein too; there is some alcohol warmth, but the alcohol is very well hidden.
