bottle - Pours very dark amber and has a rich, malty aroma with some dark fruit. The flavor is very sweet with roast caramel and dark fruit coming through nicely. Its full bodied and smooth, finishing with the promised warming characteristic. Well done.

Leighton (20116) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. A delicious Scotch Ale. Pours a dark amber with a medium, white head. Aroma is malty, with notes of caramel and scotch. Flavor is quite sweet, with plenty of rich caramel, some butter, hints of fruit, finishing with faint bitterness. Without a doubt has that Scotch Ale character, and here it is beautiful. Medium in body with average carbonation, lightly syrupy. Nice!
