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."

Sample at ÖÖWF 2012. Sweet and malty smell and taste with some caramel. Fairly mild but full body and very drinkable.

Vignale (2004) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2013
Flaska på Nya Tröls. En riktigt malttung pjäs, Mahognyfärgad med drag åt rött, i princip inget skum och bara en månad till bäst föredatumet och serverad alldeles för kall. Mycket söta maltsmaker. Russin, honung, mörkt bröd, treacle. Fina smaknyanser men också lite platt, aningen syrlig. Trevligt öl som nog drack under fel omständigheter. En höstkväll hade den nog fått högrre betyg.

planky84 (1930) - , 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.

goozen (2886) - 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.

dogbomb (930) - ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Dark rusty ale. Decent tan head which fades quite quickly. Nose is caramel with a slight sherbert malt. The taste is heavy with the maltiness, but some nice toasty sweetness and caramel notes. Finish is sweet and rich.
