3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good beige-yellow head over deep red-brown beer. Nutty, bready nose with caramel. Sourish flavour wrapped around the bread/toffee/nutty notes, with a bit of bitterness, tangy like walnutpeel. Medium to well-bodied, has some chewiness. No new aftertaste, but long-lasting main flavour. It’s too dark for an Irish ale, it’s too big for an Irish ale, and it’s TOO BL**DY GOOD for an Irish ale...

Discretamente corposa, tostata, semplice e un po’ grezza, non malaccio a dire il vero
