stravale (2315) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe [240115]
Very dark ruby brown, clear, frothy fluffy beige head, some lacing
Aroma of dark stone fruits, hedgerow fruits, bit woody, soft spicy fruit hops, soft roast, some rust, some yeast, quite complex. That rusty earthy note takes over.
Taste of dark fruity malts, dark fruits, very soft roast, some earthy hops, dab of liquorice, quite complex, taste much better than nose
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite rich, smooth, fairly sweet, alcohol well hidden, soft twiggy bitter hops. Finish has some more sweet dark malts, then a bit dry on the tail
Overall - Seems to me to be more of a strong old ale than a barley wine.

Pours a quite dark brown color, topped with a very nice tan colored head. Roasty aroma, some nutty and herbal notes can also be picked up. Sweet and fruity start, roasted body with a mildly bitter finish. Some alcohol can also be tasted, but still quite drinkable. Not bad.
