Leon is Neshaminy Creek’s Imperial S’mores Stout brewed with marshmallow fluff, bittersweet bakers chocolate and graham crackers.
Poured into a Chimay chalice.
Pitch black with 1-2 fingers of light brown head. Great retention for the 11.5% abv.
Vanilla, lactose, milk chocolate, mashmallow and some graham cracker. Smells like a really nice Milk Stout.
Milk chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow and prune. Some dirty espresso notes. Very earthy and smokey. Light notes of graham cracker and honey.
Medium-full bodied, creamy, sticky and dry.
Lots of marshmallow and vanilla. Very earthy and smokey. The 11.5% abv is hidden extremely well. This is a very well done Imperial Stout. Keep your eye out.
NCB is also currently aging some of this to put out a Bourbon Barrel version of Leon sometime next year. :)

Black. Thick creamy head. Breakfast porch beer day after 18 mile run. Creamy. marshmallows, but not sweet. Heavy. Semi-sweet chocolate. Somewhat bitter at the end. Every now and then hints of smores. Thx HankDaStank. Delicious. Alcohol well concealed. Nice Dessert beer, although I’d like it a little sweeter up front and less bitter at the end.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy dark chocolate, light-moderate marshmallow, roasted malt, and a touch of burnt notes. It’s a dark brown with some orange transparency. It has a small khaki head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate, light caramel, and a hint of molasses. There is some light-moderate marshmallow in the middle. The finish has roasted malt, faint coffee, and a hint of nuts. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Bottle to glass. Super bitter chocolate, don’t get the marshmallow. No gra cracker. On beer, but think it’s muddled a bit.

Tap. Dark pour with a big mocha head. Coffee, ash, roast, toast, caramel, licorise. Medium full body. Good balance of sweet, alcohol and bitter. Smooth finish. Alcohol is well hidden but a bit more body would be nice.

Thnx to Mike !!!
Pours very dark brown to black. No real head. Smell is intense dark malts, bit bitter. Taste is chocolaty, vanilla, some spices. Bitter aftertaste. Very balanced ! Very nice taste, but unfortunately , I miss the smooth mouthfeel and the longlasting aftertaste in this one.
