Leighton (13850) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London - bought at the brewery. It pours clear, deep reddish-brown with a large, thick and lasting beige froth head. The aroma has notes of earth, burnt cocoa, toasted pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with well toasted bread, some bittersweet cocoa. dirty pine, touches of juicy citrus. Medium bodied with average to lively, massaging carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with lots of burnt bread, mild grapefruit, earth, pine, a bit of baking cocoa. A slow starter but the beer really grew on me as I worked my way through it.

Pours pitch black color with a huge beige head. Aroma roasted malts, rye, some burnt notes, chocolate, mild hops and grape fruits. Flavor of grape fruits, rye malts, burnt wood and cocoa. A bit harsh and not that fresh anymore, sadly, otherwise decent.
