Leon is a big beer. So big, it has twice as much malt as any other beer we brew.. On top of the copious amounts of two row barley, Munich, Victory, Chocolate, Black Patent, and Caramel 80 malt in this beer each 15 barrel brew has 50 pounds of freshly in-house handmade marshmallow fluff as well as 16 pounds of bittersweet bakers chocolate, and 30 pounds of crumbled graham crackers. Leon clocks in at just over 80 IBUs and 11.6% ABV. Does it taste like a Smore’s? That’s for you to decide, but either way this is one fun beer to make, not to mention drink.

Black in color. Poured with a thick beige foam that left a ladder of sticky lacings down the glass. On the thicker side of medium bodied with soft, subdued carbonation and a smooth, creamy, sticky, sugary finish. Dark roasted malt, sweet dark chocolate aromas and hints of ground coffee. Roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors up front followed by emerging hop bitterness through the middle. Roasted malt flavors succumb to chocolate flavors at the end as this finishes cleanly and semi-dryly with a roasted malt aftertaste. A solid stout from NCBC.

1/27...bomber pours all out black. Thick as midnight, light rings of brown foam. Thick coffee nose, picks up the graham crackers too. Rich robust flavor, as kinds of tastes. Dark chocolate, coffee, milk, and the smore tastes are there too (but only b/c I am looking for it). The depth of flavor masks the alcohol, but it is in there. The result is outstanding.
