Leighton (18714) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2013, day 3 - London. Pours clear, dark brown with a light, creamy beige head. Lots of dark fruits in the nose, light molasses, dirt. Medium sweet flavor with dried dark fruits, light dry chocolate, dark toast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish, with further dried out dark fruits, dark sugars, toast, mellow chocolate, faint roast. Tasty, and quite drinkable given the strength.

Watery mouth feel for an Imp Stout. Palate has some more bitter notes of coffee with dark malt and alcohol.
