COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter. Also available bottle conditioned.
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."

Bottle. Clear and subdued ruby red with little to no head, just a fine layer of beige carbonation. Chocolate, raisin & berry and a hint of oak & alcohol on the nose. Quite nutty yet fruity flavours - berry and raisin - with some chocolate and alcohol and a roasty, slightly smokey finish. Lightly warming, medium body with a lasting dry nutty & roasted bitterness and a fruity aftertaste.

I do like a Hopdaemon, but found this a bit muddy. Sweet and malty, but a bit too grainy for me.
