{thoughts} Balanced, sourish flavor differs greatly from the succulent, sweet aroma.

{elements} Dark, cloudy, brown hue; short, tan froth. Intoxicatingly forceful aroma of chocolate, prunes, whisky and toasted walnuts with a hefty kick of vanilla. Moderate-heavy sweetness, moderate-heavy acidity, light-moderate bitterness; tastes something like a Belgian brown ale; sweetness is countered by a (slightly too strong) sourness; finishes with good tannic firmness. Medium-full body, lively carbonation, silky texture. 22 oz bottle @ GP Tuulensuu.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle shared during RBESG 2014 opening dinner. Pours brown with a creamy tan head. Lovely, rounded toffee character, lots of rich fruits and bready malts. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Nice woody accents in the finish, some toasty bread, more rich fruits and toffee. Not too boozy. Solid.

RBESG pt 1. Craft Clapham. Bottle. Think this one was Martinus, cheers mate. Murky brown beer, good cream - pale tan head. Mild oaky nose. Palate is light and smooth, modest fine carbonation. Lightly tangy malts, whisper of smoke. Light wood. Cherry - plummy fruits. Mild bitterness but an undercurrent of mild oaky sweetness. Light dry finish. A tasty number.

Bottle at RBESG. It pours cloudy deep red-brown with a small yellow-beige head. The nose is earthy, light toast, earth, vanilla, fudge, coconut, whisky and cocoa. The taste is bitter, earthy, caramel, cola, light tangerine, dried fruits, raisins, light alcohol, whisky and warming alcohol with a dry, lightly spiced finish. Medium-fullish body and fine carbonation. Pretty tasty.
