Leon is Neshaminy Creek's Imperial S'mores Stout brewed with marshmallow fluff, bittersweet bakers chocolate and graham crackers.

Poured into a Chimay chalice.

Appearance
Pitch black with 1-2 fingers of light brown head. Great retention for the 11.5% abv.

Nose
Vanilla, lactose, milk chocolate, mashmallow and some graham cracker. Smells like a really nice Milk Stout.

Taste
Milk chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow and prune. Some dirty espresso notes. Very earthy and smokey. Light notes of graham cracker and honey.

Mouthfeel
Medium-full bodied, creamy, sticky and dry.

Overall
Lots of marshmallow and vanilla. Very earthy and smokey. The 11.5% abv is hidden extremely well. This is a very well done Imperial Stout. Keep your eye out.

NCB is also currently aging some of this to put out a Bourbon Barrel version of Leon sometime next year. :)
