Leighton (22836) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Gravity cask at Craft 100 September 2014 - London. Pours dark, black-brown, with a creamy tan head. The nose has some burnt marshmallow, earth, background cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with dry, burnt wood, baking cocoa, old raisins, bitter scorched earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately dry to finish with further burnt earth, burnt grains, light alcohol, chocolate. Not bad. Decent depth. But nowhere near as good as base Bracia.

Theydon_Bois (21516) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Tap at Borefts ’13, 27/09/13. Light black with a thin tan covering that dissipates edgeward. Nose is roasty, herbal tones, hint of cocoa, light spice. Taste comprises oaky woody notes, subtle bourbon, dark chocolate. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finale. Decent barley wine, the bourbon is well integrated.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2014
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2014)
Huge coconut oil aroma, some plastic aspects, some perfuminess. Even more coconut in the taste, this is like drinking sun lotion. The oily coconut never goes away, but the beer is drinkable. Did get some wafts of hot alcohol later. More annoyingly, I get smells of piss even later. Hard to believe this was the same cask that the rest of the Finnish crowd had, not sure why they’re being wowed by pissy hand lotion.

Benzai (16933) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2013
Draught @ Borefts 2013. Opaque black color, virtually no head. Aroma and taste malts, roasted malts, lightly alcohol, nice firm bitterness and subtle bourbon. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.

Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival, 2013. Pours black with a small white head. Bourbon, roast, coffee. Vinous and slick. Smooth.
