Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle drank at Hill Farmstead while waiting for the Harvest Festival VIP session to begin, Vermont. Pours rich black with a big, staying tan cream head. Dusty cocoa nose, light roast, wet dirt (i.e. mud...). Medium sweet flavor, lots of dirty roast, earthy bitterness, light ash, a bit of moderate dark chocolate. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Medium sweet finish with dry roast, good ash, light baking cocoa, earth. A slow starter, but quite robust and nuanced by the end.
