3.39/5 rDev -11%
Clear tawny amber with a slight reddish/brown hue. Off-white collar and thin skim of bubbles coated the top of the beer. Malty aroma, sweet caramel and toffee, hint of smoke, light alcohol, slight rose character. Low bitterness, biscuit, toffee and caramel in the flavour. Full bodied, light carbonation, lingering warmth. Decent overall, but a bit one note.

2.53/5 rDev -33.6%
Appearance: Deep amber-hued body, clear, with a scant, beige head.
Smell: Mildly smoky, mildly sweet-scented caramel, with bready notes, faux strawberry, and a double shot of alcohol.
Taste: Sweet, with a light nuttiness of toasted cashews. Also, toasted bread. Low peat character. Mingled, mangled berries and peppery herb as a sharp acetone burn sets in. Sweetish, toasty/nutty finish with a final kick of booze.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Some stick, some burn present.
Overall: Guh! Like eletronic packaging, I'm really, really trying to get into this, but, at this point, I'm ready to just chuck it in the trash.

4.15/5 rDev +8.9%
A: Pours a mahogany color with a fingernails worth of head that fades to nothing within a minute
S: Nice fruity maltiness, cherries, plums, some sweetness, and a hint of smoked malts
T: Follows the nose. Nice and fruity, with notes of cherries, plums, and other darker fruits. Goes into a moderate sweetness and finally into a very light hint of smoke. Finishes with some residual sweetness and fruits. Alcohol not noticeable at all
M: Medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation
O: A very nice wee heavy with some great fruity flavors going on a just a hint of smoke as it fades away. For 10.2%, there is absolutely no noticeable alcohol and it's extremely easy to drink. A great brew in the Leviathan series, but mostly long gone at this point

a clean but very deep amber in color, finger of white head which quickly dissipated, lots of visible carbonation bubbles. smells of caramel, barley, heavy sweet maltyness like a barleywine, slightly fruity/wood scents. the flavor has more of a fruityness than expected, some cherry/raspberry but mildly there. lots of wood barrel, sweet malt, caramel. a very booze heavy beer, letting its presence known by stinging your gums and leaving a nice warmth in your chest. full body, moderate amount of carbonation. this is a very nice beer both in general and for the style. one of the best beers i've had from harpoon.
