Leighton (19496) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle shared in NYC - thanks to Sander. Pours clear brown, reddish, with an off-white head that fades away immediately. Tangy berries inhe nose, a little wood, toffee. Light-medium sweet with low bitterness, a little metallic zing, cherry, faint musty funk, hints of lemon. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with woody dryness, a little earth, leathery berries, some lemony acidity. Enjoyable beer.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Pours a brownish/amber color with a tan head. Smells slightly vinegary, as I sort of expected. Sweet bread and toffee malts are there. Some hints of dark fruit and a bit of oak/barrel aroma. The flavor has a nice tartness with notes of vinegar and cherries. A few other dark fruit notes in there as well as the sweetness of toffee malt. Not an overly impressive beer, but in no way bad or offensive.

750 ml bottle shared by Chris- thanks again! Pours a cloudy amber-hued brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, cherries, plums, earth, and brown sugar. Funky, tart, and sweet. Same with the flavor but without as much tartness. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Solid oud bruin.

onceblind (8177) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
@ Falling Rock, GABF 2012. Black hued with a thin off white head. Smelled no-good, with an aroma like mop water and sour-barrel dark malts. Flavor was thankfully better with some bretty and bacterial funky barrel dark earthy toffee, earthy dark malts, and a clean bretty raisin/oak tones on the finish.
