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."

Dark amber color. Nice malty aroma. Round malty taste with a good hoppiness. Good one.

harrisoni (13599) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2005
Cask at Dover Beer Festival. I am a self confessed fan of this brewery and this beer bears all the hallmarks of why I like it. Really interesting malts and a good agressive hop flavour. Sweetish malt with good fruit leads to a big satisfying finish. As you can tell I am a big fan

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
A slightly sweet red-brown beer. Fruity and nutty. The aroma isn’t very distinctive. Some bitterness on the finish. Pleasant, but not very imposing for a strong ale. Cask (gravity), White Cliffs Festival, February 2005.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottled, from Pitfield’s in London. Rather exotic and complex aroma with some floral, spicy hops, pineapple, pear, dried apricot, various leafy herbs, toasty malt, anise, mint, tree bark and persimmon(?). Medium red-orange color, cloudy, with a lasting, fine, creamy off-white head. Flavor profile is hop oriented -- spicy, flowery and lightly citric, with moderate amounts of biscuity malt and hop bitterness and a fruity, tangy, nutty, dry finish. Body is medium, the palate finely effervescent. Interesting and unique.

JorisPPattyn (7887) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2004
Fully hazy orange-amber; amber-yellow head, irregular, fast dwindling. Perfumed, vanilla, cardemom peel nose. Touch smoked flavour, tobacco-ashes. Quite some hops, not exactly the best IMO. Lots of malt, giving some (bitter) chocolate in the finish + more tobacco. Medium bodied. Mineral water feel, refreshing despite the dark malts. Nice beer, but only a Brit would call a 6% ABV beer a "strong" ale...

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2004
Orange-red with beige head. Fruity aroma with tutti-frutti tones. Flowery with tones of hops. Hoppy flavor, dry with really nice bitterness

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2003
Bottled. Reddish brown. Raspberry aroma. Malty and fruity, sweet and port-like with salty, bitter finish.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Re-rate - Bottled, from Asda Scunthorpe. Chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head andlow condition. Sweet grainy maltiness, brown sugar, some peppery spiciness and a low burnt fruit in the nose, quite soft in the mouth with an upfront earthy chalkiness giving way to a liquorice sweetness that with time becomes bitter once again, lingering licorice bitterness in the finish with an underlying earthiness. Initial Rating Date: 9/8/2003 - Bottle conditioned. Chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head and moderate condition. Raisin, tobacco, malt and hops in the nose. Quite unbalanced in the mouth with syrupy licorice and mouthfilling nuttiness that becomes coconutty towards the end. Some hops apparent in finish but nuts still dominate. (6-3-6-3-11 2.9)

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2002
Big hit of hops at first, then the fruit - slightly sour, a bit honeyed, mildly sweet. Some grapefuit, melon, passion fruit. Some rust, some fluff covered barley-sugar left in an old raincoat for a couple of months, a splash of cough mixture, and a hint of WD40. Not a bad little drink.
