On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Looking at the beer, its very promising, the first sniff makes me even more hopeful, and when I finally taste it, Im completely lost. First of all, it looks gorgeous, jet black and with a finger-thick tan head. The aroma is wonderful, but not superb, with lots of coffee and chocolate, some spiced hints and roasted malts. Maybe a faint hint of prunes in the back. The flavor takes me to heaven, its so complex and wonderful, with lots of delicious coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. A nice chili flavor blends in, giving a certain warmth in the mouth, coming stronger after a while, but never at too high levels. Theres also dried fruits and cola in the flavor, but not much. Its full-bodied and warming in the palate, finishing with lots of dark flavors and a pleasant chili burn. Damn, damn, damn, this was just fin wonderful. Best beer on the festival I say. 120511

Leighton (19846) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours thick black, oily, with a heavy, brown-red head. Extremely heavy dark chocolate nose, deep coffee. Big sweet flavor, light booze, plenty of coffee, dark chocolate, light spice, thick brownies. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, light boozy sting, some coffee bitterness, oodles of mocha character. Very, very rich beer. Intense, though still nicely balanced. Great.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Keg at the Craft Beer Co. Pours a pitch black colour with a big brown head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is huge and bold: roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and cocoa beens. A hint of tartness as well. Taste is mostly sweet, with chocolate, coffee, roasted notes and vanilla, some tartness again and light hot spicy sensation from the chilli peppers. Bold body with good carbonation. Overall, extremaly enjoyable, flavourful and magnificent. All the ingredients are easily identified, no one prevails and they work perfectly together, amazing.
