Leighton (11894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Hand bottle at Patís Birthday Tasting, London, thanks to Ian. Pours clear garnet with a white foam head. Rich malts aroma, some toffee. Very sweet flavor with cake-like bread, caramel, sugar syrup. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky and lightly warming on the finish, with toasty sugars, more caramel, some boozy fruits. Very, very good. Itís a very sweet beer, but for the style thatís how it goes. Wonderful depth here.

Scopey (7449) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Hand bottle, thanks to Ian. It pours deep red-brown, with a thin beige film. The nose is sweet fig, prune, currant, vanilla, TCP and a hint of glue. The taste is raisin, currant, vanilla, whisky, toffee and alcohol warmth in the finish. Medium body, low carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. A bit cloying, but tasty stuff.
