COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of this English style ale is deep garnet red in color with a distinct malt backbone balanced by a unique blend of hops. Cheers!

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 23, 2012
Didn’t seem very creative, more like an imperial ipa on steroids. Boozy, deep amber, some sweet dark fruit, mostly boost.

tmongoose (1283) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2012
on draft poured out amber with little head and carbonation...the aroma of warm alcohol and dark fruit very prominent...the sweet malt and dark fruit flavor followed by the warmth of the alcohol burn results in a very nice beer..aging? anything is possible.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a white head. Smells of flowers, citrus and lots of hops. Tastes of medium bitterness and heavy sweetness. Medium bodied. Oily texture. Finishes cloying with a hint of bitter. Quite tasty.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a reddish amber with a thin beige head. Nose is malty--lots of caramel and toffee, but also some cherry skins and dark fruits, sort of like some American quads. Some hops. Interesting. Taste is a bit boozy.

AskForJenny (1020) - Ontario, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Tap - Red pour with no head. Robust palate, creamy note with ominous boozy presence. Represents style, well balanced.

Drake (8539) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus hops, toffee, caramel, brown sugar and toasted malts. The taste is toffee, caramel, citrus, bitter hops and toasted malts. Medium-full bodied. Slightly boozy, low carbonation.

bbbeer (586) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Nice red-brown with small light-tan head. Aroma pine, floral hops, candy background. Somewhat syrupy, light alcohol presence, almost no carbonation. Flavor is quite sweet, malty caramel and brown sugar, minimal hops, boozy finish. Really needs a drier finish or more carbonation or something but somehow altogether more pleasant to drink than the individual flaws would suggest.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2011
slight tawny color, white head. low retention rate. apples, plums, figs, some spices. good solid hop character, but the malts outweigh them which is nice for an american barleywine. very mellow, great aged or fresh..

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark, copperish-red amber color with a moderate head of smooth, beige tinted foam. Settling to a thin outer ring, the head leaves behind a sudsy wash that mostly returns to the body, save for a scant few spots that dry. The nose is strongly alcoholic and overly grainy, suggesting of stale wheat, some peppery rye, and a bit of unwanted cardboard. Hops are bold, pithy, and citrus driven, hinting also at pine resin. Flavors largely follow suit, again based in booze and grain, attacking the tongue with both an alcoholic burn and a biting, bitter hop finish. Hints of stale dark fruit also emerge, but they certainly do not help matters. The palate is a bit under carbonated, not much, but enough. The boozy heat is rough doing down. Overall, I’d pretty much call this a failure across the board. Very disappointing, because the Leviathan IPA was very good when fresh.
