Other than being a little bit disappointed by how small this bottle is – you only get 250ml – this is an absolutely super beer.
Leviathan is a Cognac aged Barley Wine that’s deep and rich, round and warm, pouring a damson purple brown it smells of plums and brandy.
This is one of those few beers that you need to write about as a whole rather than breaking down into constituent parts, and so what I have tell you is you’ll find an earthy pumpernickel, sticky toffee pudding, conkers and red crunchy leaf litter, molasses and lemon bonbons, toffee and coffee and just a hint of fried bananas before you head into the chest warming sweet and sticky boozy heat.
I like this very much indeed, I just wish that I had more of it.
