Tullu jo pitkään pyöriteltyä tätä kaapissa, van viimein sain tän korkattua ja pistettyä maisteluun. Kokonaisuus on hyvin maltainen, karamellinen, vaniljainen, tamminen, viskinen, kahvinen ja hieman lakritsinen. Kyllähän sieltä vähän sellanen jotenkin "kirkas" viskisyys tulee esille, joka ei kuitenkaan ole alkoholinen. Tuntuu vain, että se jotenki virkistää oluen makumaailmaa, vaikka paletti vaikuttaakin hieman vaisulta. Ihan ok, muttei mitään erikoista.

BEER: Capablanca BREWERY: Buxton Brewery BEER STYLE: Imperial Porter (Scotch BA) COUNTRY: England ABV.: 11.0% COLOUR (EBC): Black (100.0) BITTERS (EBU/IBU): - AROMA: Malts, some rye from the barrel aging. Mild. HEAD: One finger tall, yellow-ish, leaving with noisy lacing. GREY’S VIEW Scotch Barrel Aged Imperial Porter. First sip. And we have promising piece of beer here. I pick roasted malts, raw and savage like whiskey flavour, some rye and liquorice. Barrel aging feels freshly made and it is robust; I kinda like it. Mouthfeel is swift with sharpeeish carbonation. This is clearly made with daringly roasted malts. Aftertaste has some wet leafiness, but malts overwhelms them quite easily. OTHER NOTES: Buxton Brewery and their barrel series contains 6 different beers. Yeah. I might give few more moments for the others to settle a bit and look what my cellar truly has to offer. CANNED 12/2020 TASTED 2/2021

The 2nd of the Christmas presents from my neighbour. It pours black with a brown head. Aroma is of vanilla and Scotch whiskey. Flavour is of vanilla, Scotch and hints if brown sugar and roasted malts. Slightly sweet.
