Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Palate is slightly soft and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts including the chocolate cake. Trace of spice and a little coconut. Light dry finish. Nice beer but the flavours seem less vibrant then it’s cask sibling.

Leighton (18714) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle at home in London - thanks to Colin for hooking it up. Pours rich, black-brown with a dense, foamy beige head. Great aroma, full of milk chocolate, dark fruits, ashy roast. Medium sweet flavor with somewhat sugary chocolate character, black raspberry, moderate earthy bitterness, dark cocoa, faint burnt wood tang, a bit of toffee, plums and figs. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and silky texture. Sweet finish with more milk chocolate, understated roast, well ripened dark fruits, raisins, touches of smoked meat. A bit of bitter torched earth in the aftertaste. A little on the sweet side but very solid overall.
