ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Redmonds. Lush black pour with scarlet highlights, tan head dissipates a but quick but laces the glass nicely. Chocolate, dark fruits and a hint of smoke in the aroma. Lush flavour, big dark chocolate gives some bitterness and heavy roasted malt for some chewiness, dark ripe cherries, salty toward the finish, with some warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is super lush, coats the tongue, finish rolls on forever. Brilliant.
