jamestulloch (2029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Aroma: Berries, coffee beans, light fruity hints and floral hops.

Appearance: Dark ruby body with a huge lasting tan head. Lots of sticky lacing.

Taste: Sweet chocolatey malt with a fruity, bittering hop presence - really well balanced. Liquorice, plum and orange notes. A delicious beer.

Palate: Medium body with a smooth, slightly oily palate. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Another gem from Fyne Ales - certainly one of their best beers. Good in bottle, excellent in cask.

Yum. Tastes gorgeous, but it doesn’t linger for long. I could drink lots through and am looking forward to more from Fyne :)
