stravale (2076) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 21, 2013
Bottle from Great Grog, Edinburgh [200413] Bottled 31/1/13
Black, thin tan head, some lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, deep roasted coffee grounds, dab of burnt toast, soft marmite, bit of smoke
Taste of roastred malts, some dark bitter chocolate, touch of liquorice, charred notes in there, alcohol well hidden, charcoal
Palate - Soft carb, medium to full body, oily creamy texture. Finish is creamy, bitter roast finish with some creamy dark plain chocolate, dryish tail with some charred roast
Overall - Well made beer that’s for sure, lots of high ratings here, for me it was rather over roasted - I’m more a fan of impys than foreign stouts

BenH (2260) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. Black with dense tan head. Roasty ashy aroma with chocolate and coffee, also some weird sharp fruitiness, kind of like plastic. Taste again has weird plastic flavour mixed with some very nice roasty coffee and chocolate. Decent thick body and a slightly bitter finish. Something odd in here that im not in to, reminds me a bit of sorachi ace
