Leighton (17225) - London, Greater London, - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at the Old Coffee House, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Big pine nose with a hefty roasted malt backbone. Medium sweet flavor rife with dirt, thick pine, burnt grass, dark orange and grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Heavy resinous finish with lots of dirty pine, ripe citrus, moderate roast, light baking cocoa. No abrasive bitterness, which is very nice. Well rounded black IPA.

Keg at Brodies. Nice lacing. Big toffee malty hit. Medium sweet toffee, not getting loads of hops here until the medium bitter end. Tasty nonetheless.
