mR_fr0g (4948) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge wines. A catch up rate. Aroma is nice earthy roast, damp campfire, slight smokey ash, Some earthy coco on the nose as well.. Lively pour, opaque black with some dark red highlights and a big mid tan head that fades to a thin layer. Flavour is composed of smooth nutty roast, campfire, praline, and a bittle roast bitterness in the finish. Smoke character is nicely integrated with the base beer. A little soapy note on the flavour. Palate is medium full, smoth with highish carbonation.
