3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at O’Riley & Conways, pours a very dark brown, pretty much black with a tan head, the aroma was of dark fruit and chocolate with a very subtle amount of smoke, nothing over the top at all, the flavor has a sweeter front end with some smoke and meat in the finish, again though pretty subtle and doesn’t punch you in the face, not bad.
