Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 1. Opaque black beer, little pale tan head. Light dry crispy palate. Very mild dark malts. A little lactose. Super mild whisky. Semi dry finish. A bit wishy washy for a BA beer but all right overall.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours deep brown with a fine, off-white bubble head. Good dark bread nose with sturdy whisky character. Medium sweet flavor with some dark fruits, dark toasted bread, definite whisky barrel. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate whisky character to finish, nice smoked malts, very subtle chocolate. Exceptionally well balanced beer, and impressively nuanced given the relatively low ABV.

Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2014) (6:4+:6+:4+:14+=3.4++++)
Medicinal menthol aroma. Nice black, small loose head. Soft palate, a little flat. Simple rich roast in the taste. Only fills out in the finish. Also better as it warms, so maybe good as a slow sipper, even though it has no sign of alcohol at all. Which means that it’s a nice sweet roasty glugger too, if that’s your thing. Smokiness took a long time to appear. Whisky nicely well in check, provinding a feel, but not a taste, of the barrel.

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2012
Boreft Beer Festival 2012. Near black with a small off-white head. Complex aroma of licorice, dates and cherry, a faint smoked note and some vineous whisky character. Sweetish roasted and malty flavour with a fruity touch
