A Note on This Beer
Made with 50 pounds of homemade marshmallow fluff, 16 pounds of bakers chocolate, and 30 pounds of graham crackers in each 15 barrel batch, Neshaminy Creek’s Leon Russian Imperial Stout is the dessert beer to beat in the greater Philadelphia Region.
It’s an indulgent dessert experience for sure, and it never loses track of the quality craftsmanship that’s making Neshaminy Creek a rising star of the Philly scene. With expert finesse they give Leon with an 11.6% ABV and a touch of toasted graham crackers, giving it broad appeal and making it one of their best sellers. Just check out what fans on BeerAdvocate are saying:
“It really does taste like a smore while tasting like a top notch RIS at the same time.” --@Bret717
“The flavor is a delicious array of sweet flavors with a subtle roast and a boozy kick. Vanilla, brown sugar, chocolate, almost a cookie dough like taste. The alcohol is pretty subtle for being 11.6%... Yikes. This beer is absolutely awesome. Tasty beyond belief.” --@facundoCNB
“The aroma gathered in a damn nice blend of dark and milk chocolates. Overall, extremely nice RIS that I would love to come across again.” --@Lone_Freighter
This popular s’mores brew only comes out once a year, so one of the most frequently asked questions posed is, “When can I get more Leon?” Unless you’re a Tavour member or live in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Delaware, the answer is never.
