Leighton (22334) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours rich brown with frothy beige head that settles into a creamy film. The aroma has moderate roasted malts with hints of tobacco and baking cocoa. Light to medium sweet flavor with a strong roasted malt foundation, with soft notes of coffee, cocoa, dirt and burnt leaves. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Good balance to finish, further roasted malts, a bit of toasted sugars, light chocolate cake, burnt bread, raisins and a mild earthy bitterness. A solid offering.
