3.13/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours jet black with a mocha head.
Aroma is very interesting...initially quite sweet with molasses, candied fruit, dark chocolate, a little toasted caramel.

Taste definitely incorporates the sweet molasses flavor, but the bitterness overwhelms it rather than evening it out and it didn't add any complexity to it other than being overtly bitter. Mouthfeel was very light and watery, which I expected a heavier stout like creaminess.

The reviews on this are very good, so it's quite possible I came across a bad bottle.
The aroma was excellent, but past that, I couldn't finish the glass. It didn't blend well at all for me.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 0.5L Duvel Tulip

A: Dense light brown head. Opaque body. Head fades fairly quickly.

S: Dark rich aromas, roasty, boozy, slight black olive.

T: Rich chocolate roast, fairly low bitterness, slightly sweet. Very well made.

M: Nice and dry, not overly filling.

D: A very well made stout, conplex and full of flavor. Would drink again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This is a 2012 brew I saved and poured into pint glass at cellar temperature.
A: Pours jet black color no light coming through and a thick dark tan head that settles to a layer of bubbles.
S: Full on burnt and chocolate roasted barley aroma with a big layer of dried dark cherries and currants. Some mocha coffee adds to the char and ups the complexity. Some earthy hop notes trickle through and a bit of alcohol on the nose.
T: Very roasty and some bitter coffee and dark chocolate wrestle with the dark, dried fruit of cherries and currants. There are a lot of layers here and as you keep going there is a smokiness that gets into the mix. Some earthy hop notes come to balance some of that intense malt character.
M: Full body and medium carbonation with some alcohol warmth that is welcomed and not too hot.
O: One of the best Harpoon beers I have had and certainly the best Leviathan Series brew I have had yet! It is rich and complex but yet not totally a sipper. The flavors demand more sampling and it is not overly strong or sweet. Loved this beer and found it aged nicely!
