Bottle at the CP&K, Scopey’s Birthday Bash. Cheers Leighton. Opaque dark brown beer. Small pale tan head. Light airy palate, fairly dry. Very mild dark malts with a little lacto. Mild mellow ginger. Finishes sweet with mellow ginger warmth. A good idea this beer but I think would work better if it was bigger and richer but I guess it would then lose it’s heritage.

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Black beer with dark brown edges, a bit of a gusher with a thick dark beige head. Ginger choc biscuit aroma. I rather like this to be honest. I like the ginger the sting the hop on the finish. Yep, pretty good.

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle shared at Paul’s big birthday bash at CPK, London. Pours brown with a moderate, foamy beige head. Big ginger nose with some nice chocolate accents. Medium to big sweet flavor with loads more ginger, light roast and some dark chocolate. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Robust ginger finish with light sting, modest roast, good chocolate. Fantastic balance. Great integration between the ginger and chocolate character. Of course you need to like ginger to enjoy this beer, but the overall balance and nuance here is excellent.
