Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Session 3. Pours clear, deep brown with a foamy, tan head. Rich burnt wood aroma, with some baking cocoa and dried fruits, too. Hugely sweet flavour, syrupy and boozy, with earthy bitterness, charred wood and burnt honey. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with lots of burnt sugars, charred wood, alcohol. Pretty decent, but only in small doses.
