COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only 2011 bottles have been produced of "Liberation 140" for the occasion. The brewery, originally based in Ann Street and now located at Longueville, started producing fine ales in 1871 and is now responsible for award winning beers such as the Liberation Ale and the renowned Mary Ann range.
Liberation 140 has been brewed using the finest quality British malts including Maris Otter, Centennial, Amarillo and Motueka hops provide the aroma which is robust, fruity and rich. At 7% it is a strong dark IPA which drinks easily but is not easily forgotten.
The limited production run will ensure that Liberation 140, in its special presentation bottle and case, will become a collectors’ item for beer connoisseurs.

Leighton (14360) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle shared during Cotteridge Convention 2015. What a rare treat! Pours lightly hazy brown with a foamy, off-white head. The nose holds toasty bread, faint pine and tangy citrus. Medium sweet flavor with notes of chocolate, semi-dark malts, toasted caramel. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good balance to finish, with a bit of ripe citrus and dark bread. Tasty.

Scopey (9381) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle from Corkscrew Jersey, shared at the Cotteridge Convention. It pours hazy deep brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, pine, cocoa, candied orange peel and cake. The taste is bitter-sweet, earth, roast, brown sugar, toast, earth, sugary milky coffee and light spice. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough, but not worth the expense! Saying that this is probably Jersey’s best beer.

The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Cloudy brown, small white head. Aroma is light, sweet malts with a touch of oxidation. Body is medium, light carbonation, smooth. Taste is thin, malty, touch of pine, meaty background, no real bitterness to it. Some nice aspects to the flavour.

imdownthepub (11474) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Scopey for this. Dark murky copper with slight head. Initially quite sweet on the caramel front, then a fungal musty flavour. Yeasty, some hints of chocolate malt later. Not quite there for me.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
24th Jan 2015 at the Cotteridge Wine beer exchange: my share poured a murky dark brown with a thin, almost scummy beige topping. The nose had a pine and tropical fruit aroma with something else lurking in the background, might have been cocoa as that turned up within the taste along with all the flavours you’d expect from the aroma. Decent, but surrounded by so many fine beers it was soon forgotten.

Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Murky brown. Film of head. Roast coffee malts. Woody. Fruity. Got some cherry. Tastes a bit musky. Ok.
