smelvis (2) - IRELAND - JAN 17, 2014 does not count
Lovely deep amber/ ruby colour with a frothy head. Plenty of caramel and toffee with a woody undertone on the nose. Very full bodied but great balance between the sweet dark malt and bitter hops and nicely backed up by a significant alcoholic punch. Very good
