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."

Wonderful winter warmer in true style. Big flowery hoppy aroma. Sweet but not overly so. Bitter but well balanced. Complex but still easily overviewed. Fruity, nutty, toffee, butterscotch, malts, hops. The full monty.

Orange-red with beige head. Fruity aroma with tutti-frutti tones. Flowery with tones of hops. Hoppy flavor, dry with really nice bitterness

Man ska definitivt inte gå över ån för det här fermenterade vattnet. Men till kvarterskrogen kan det ändå vara värt. Hopdaeom Leviathan ligger för ankar vid medelmåttornas meredian och har större existensvärde som mätpunkt än som njutningsmedel. Kan med fördel användas som vattenpass för att avläsa balansen på andra öl.

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

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.

Bottle. Looks very dark brown, ruby tinge, no head at all- ends up looking like a pint of coke. Aroma- malty, slight red wine, raisin, hop hints. Taste- full and malty, raisin hints, a little bit of roastiness, chocolatey finish. Really nice, unexpectedly so given the appearance.

JWE (209) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Taste and aroma with coffee, caramel, chocolate, malt and hops. Oily palate and bitter after taste.
