Leighton (11861) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 1. Pours dark amber with a creamy, yellow-beige head. Nose of caramel, dates, figs and toasted bread. Big sweet flavor with moderate bitter earth, leaves, rich and nicely toasted sugars, sweet bread, raisins and other ripe berries. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish (much, much less than you would expect given the ABV) with rich, darkened sugars, some bitter burnt toast, lots of ripe fruits. Great beer. One of the festival’s best.

750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of brown sugar and brandy. And oak. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, oak and brandy. Actually has bitter notes - but maybe that’s alcohol. Apropo of that, the heat is well under control.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours dark brown with burnt-orange highlights and no head. The aroma is of dates and brandy with a hint of maple. Mega full-bodied and stoopid chewy with nearly no carbonation. The flavor offers malty notes of dates and figs interwoven with a nice, fruity, brandy component. Smooth alcohol booziness in the lightly sweet finish. Most viscous beer I’ve run across, and I’ve run across a lot of beer. Many thanks to newcigarz for sharing this world class bottle of beer!
