COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ingredients: Pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, caramalt, wheat malt. Fuggles and Bramling Cross hops.
"At Hopdaemon we have balanced the complex flavours of traditional malt varieties with the richness of Kentish hops to create Leviathan a strong ruby ale that conditions naturally in the bottle."

goozen (2928) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2011
Bottle pint: Dark ruby red coloured brew with an an fruity taste and a bitter finish. And the label is kind of odd.

AndrewC (323) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle conditioned. Dark mahogany brown colour. Quite high carbonation. Hang on I’m going to go and decant it. Ah, that’s much better. Smells of sour cherries. I wouldn’t believe this was 6%. It tastes so smooth with no alcoholic burn at all. There’s plenty of malt in there with a burnt\toasted malt on the finish. In the front of the mouth there’s nothing much going on. There’s some sweetness but not much; there’s some red fruit but only a hint. There’s also not much hop going on either. It tastes like a toasted best bitter. I’ve had this on cask a number of times over the years and it was much, much better. I’m disappointed with this bottle.

planky84 (2103) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Toffee, malts, berries, baked apple and pear aromas. Chocolate, caramel, raisins and cloves in the taste. Quite smooth and easy drinking. Gentle bitterness on the palate. Not bad.

Bottle bought from Asda in Folkestone whilst on holiday.Dark brown and slightly dry with a small head. Not a lot of body but enough flavour to make it a pleasant if average example of this style.
