Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear amber with a creamy, beige head. Nose holds some ripe fruits, dirt, leaves. Medium sweet flavor, some bready malts, berries, plums, hints of chocolate and coffee. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, nice coffee notes, more fairly ripe, sweetened berries, nips of chocolate. Quite tasty stuff, in fact. Rasmus40 (20645) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011

Bottle. Amber color, offwhite head. Leather aroma,a bit strange and not what I want from a beer. Spicy leather flavor, some fruits, maybe some caramel. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006

Sweetish beer with some boiled sweet. Good dark beer, wih some bitter choc/coffee. However, would be excellent in live in cask saxo (18301) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2009
