Deep oaky color, creamy tan head, aroma if oats, alcohol, raisin, smoke. Creamy mouth feel, apples and barley. Small hops flavor with bitter finish. Finish is similar to grapefruit juice; lingers a few minutes.

Draft at Gilly’s in Rockville, MD. Decent dark amber color with an OK foam. Good bitter flavor. Finishes a bit chalky for me.

On tap at the Padonia Ale House. Pours a real dark brown. Small tan head. Nice hop taste while not being the main focus of this brew. The malts take over to give a nice smooth finish. A little bitter. Real good beer

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Nice looking and nice tasting. I like the mix of hint of hops and grain, flowing with smooth malt. Very good balance of flavors, this is one I will buy again soon.

Fantastic bitter beer, one of those that’s better than the beer it’s based on. Malty but balanced, it definitely seems more and more drinkable as temperatures cool.

Butter aftertaste, but deep and interesting. Can imagine drinking this during a winter storm

Leighton (22290) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Tap at Rattle n Hum way back when - NYC. Pours clear brown with a fine, off-white foam head. Lots of rich malts in here, caramel, ripe fruits, bread, modest earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet and lightly warming to finish, further hefty malts, toasted caramel. Decent.
