SamTheBarrel (385) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 330ml bottle labelled "O’Haras Christmas Velvet". Pours a nearly black dark brown with a large thick tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts, charcuteries, coffee and a hint of tar and dark chocolate. Medium bitterness with a light sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation. A pleasant stout, but would have liked it a bit stronger and fuller bodied.

Att sätta irländare att brygga julöl är som att skicka skridskorna till Tunisien för slipning. Julstämningen infinner sig tydligen inte i slasket på den gröna ön och inte i den här flaskan heller.
