Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle at THE Sour and Saison Tasting, London. Thanks to Bruce for keeping the tasting going long after the sours and saisons had been drank. Pours black-brown with a creamy, beige cap. Tangy chocolate nose. Big sweet flavor though not at all cloying, with baking cocoa, moderate alcohol, dark berries and raisins in particular. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with dry chocolate, more dark and dried fruits. Great stuff, nicely balanced.

330ml bottle bought in Brussels in 2013. VIntage 2011. Pours an almost black with a huge dark beige head. Aroma is chocolate, cherries, port barrel, some iron notes. Taste is sweet, chocolate, roasted malt some cherry and iron notes. Same aftertaste. This beer would be much better without iron in it, but it still good, though.

PlutonowyMan (711) - POLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Barwa ciemno br?zowa, prawie czarna, br?zowa piana miejscami w kolorze ciemnego br?zu. Drobno i ?rednio p?cherzykowa, o sporych rozmiarach, bardzo trwa?a. Aromat intensywnie palony i wytrawny, s? tutaj nuty mocnej kawy, likieru z ciemnych owocw, karmel delikatnie spalony. Smak przypalony, popio?owy, z kaw? i likierem kawowym tworz?cym kr?gos?up Kaberta. Ciemne owoce, rodzynki nadaj? owocowe t?o a ca?o?? uzupe?nia przypalona, kawowa goryczka. Alkohol schowany idealnie, przypomina o sobie delikatnymi nutami Porto. Nasycenie niskie, uprzyjemnia degustacje i powolne s?czenie tego RISa. Piwo ma faktur? g?st? i oleist?.

jkwood04 (5443) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 4, 2017
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, a decent amount of sweetness, some port and oak, and light dough and bitterness. Flavor of a nice smooth imperial stout with the roast and chocolate and port barrels all balancing out nicely. Smoother texture. Very cool.
