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!

A bit of a disappointment. Poured a nice amber-red color with a quickly fading white head. Looked to be very thin and watery. Aroma had a nice sweetness, some brown sugar and some caramel. Hops were decent, but not assertive enough. Hints of vanilla were present. Flavor showcased more of the sweet malts then anything else. Hops were mildly bitter and the alcohol seamed well hidden. Overall body seemed light.

Sinister scents of medicinal booze-soaked fruit and breads. Deep amber orange. Some suspension - guess the age at two years. Taste is semisweet chalk and alcohol burn. Heavy syrupy stuff here. Had this at a now closed joint in NH for the first time two years ago, for $3. Costs at least that in the store down this way.

In short: A strong but smooth amber ale with strange spiciness and stale water. Meh.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed a few months after purchase.
The look: Partly cloudy golden-amber body topped by a medium off-white head.
In long: Nose is sweet pastry, moldy bread, stale water, dog fur, unexpected herbal spiciness along with some strange cinnamon-like notes. Taste is soft soggy bread, soft pastry, cereals grain, caramel, sweetness under control, some alcohol warmth, spicy candy, herbal spiciness, dry leafy hops. Becomes hard to separate the herbal spiciness sensation from the grassy/herbal hops. Spiciness and stale water in the comeback. Very pleasant mounthfeel with a comfortable full pillowy texture. A few things I didnít like in this beer but it doesnít really matter because overall this beer wasnít very tasty at all More an inoffensive boozy beer than anything else. It was easy to drink the full bottle although it not something I want to have again. Another Harpoon Leviathan I should not have bought, I keep forgetting that these beers always disappoint me, my memory is as bad as those NASCAR drivers who need to be reminded at each race to start their engines.

Bottle from Dr. Jekyllís. Orange pour with a tan head. Aroma is alcohol, malt, and slight fruit. Taste is buttery, very hot, and a little hop bitterness.

12oz bottle pours a hazy, burnt orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is kind of trashy, dried orange, malt, toast, cardboard. Flavor is malty, orange, cardboard, a little herbs, some trash. I think itís just too damn old.

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, Iíd pretty much call this a failure across the board. Very disappointing, because the Leviathan IPA was very good when fresh.
