The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. Palate is airy, light and semi dry. The dark malts are not too heavy and carry just a touch of roast. Little malt cream and blackcurrant fruits. Touch of coffee. Light mildy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival 2013 - Le Gothique. The beer pours oily black-brown with a mellow, creamy brown head. The aroma holds lots of burnt wood, dark chocolate, well roasted malts and burnt marshmallows. It’s medium sweet with a nice torched wood character, subtle pine, dark fruits, rich chocolate and restrained bitterness. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation, the beer rests easy on the palate. It finishes with light dry burnt wood, further rich chocolate, earthy bitterness and more scorched marshmallows. The most impressive thing about the beer is the balance between the intense depth of flavor and it’s drinkability; for a 10.5% beer, it was far too easy to drink this beer. This was my favorite of the festival. Rasmus40 (20643) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013

Dark caramel and roasted nuts, lean and a bit boozy, with hints of liquorice, some acidity. Good but I’m less impressed than I was the first time.

Black color with brownish head, large and compact. The aroma is very nice, roasted malt, creamy, with milk cream and wood-oven bread. The body is lean, the mouthfeel smooth; good roasted malt flavor, with some firewood, very light smoke presence, and very light liquorice; correct bitterness level; well balanced overall.
Not very emotional nor innovative, yet a solid, clean and well brewed beer.
