Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks tom L. Dark brown with a beige head. A little roasty, nutty and alcoholic aroma, a little phenolic in the mouth but also bitter and a little alcoholic. Quite light body, phenolic finish.

JamesGates (3) - IRELAND - MAR 7, 2015 does not count
Aroma is sweetly caramel, coffee and chocolate and it pours a darkly ruby black with a tan head that gives way. Full bodied and softly carbonated with quite a creamy sweet vanilla and conducive malty taste. The finish is very good and on reflection not as cloying as had been expected; would certainly try again and have more than one to see how they sit.
