Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle shared at the chriso Snow Tasting in London - thanks to Jan. Pours dark, brown-black with a creamy, beige head. The nose holds some alcohol and iodine, dark malts, roast. Big sweet flavor with dark sugars, prominent alcohol/barrel character, understated roast. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Hot finish with more dark malts, dark chocolate, wood. Decent if a bit heavy handed.

Taste comprises dark fruits, roast malt, a little chocolate, touch of wood, some booze, bourbon. Full bodied with soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, dry in the finish. Well balanced, not too boozey, Good stuff!

mcberko (19809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out intense bourbon barrels, almost a tartness from the wood and light cocoa. Flavour follows suit, with super boozy barrel notes, tart fruits, and wood. Fairly complex, but I’m a little put off by the sourness. Still, very nice stuff.

saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2014

Bottle, 10.5%. Black with medium brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, wood, vanilla and oak. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, wood, oak, sweet, hop, little liquorice, notes of whisky and a little bitter.

750ml bottle ([email protected])
Christ this is hot! Pure booze coming off the glass. Looked great, but the wanky "Borat"-style label (and the fact that the aroma has already pissed me off) means I just don’t want to give it a 5. Taste has the predictable hot alcohol burn that dominates everything. Shit.
