stravale (2038) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle from Beers Of Europe [260414]
Pitch black, frothy tan head
Aroma of rich roasted malts, dark malts, dark plain chocolate, quite an intense aroma for the abv, soft coffee, good aroma
Taste as aroma, rich flavour, dark bitter chocolate, roasted malts, nice roast, some dark fruits, complex for the abv, moreish
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite rich, malis quite mouth clinging, fairly bitter roast but not too much with some nice sweet dark malts. Finish as main flavour, quite rich, fairly long rich dark malt linger.
Overall - Really good stout, nice rich malts for the abv....I’d love to try this on cask one day
