Bottled variant. Very lively and bubbly but really tasty. Black body with a creamy head. Full bodied. Traditional stout without much chocolate or coffee flavour.

I smelt roasted barley or coffee. Somehow I would like to have more body for this stout. Maybe oats would have made this beer better. But three star is good. Taste ends with mild hops but hoppy taste lasted quite a while.

stravale (2315) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Booths, MediaCityUK [071114]
Pitch black, big tan fluffy frothy head, good lacing
Aroma of soft burnt roast, charcoal, touch of dark fruits, some fruity coffee grounds
Taste of roasted malts, touch of burnt toast, some dark malts, bit of yeast, mellow dark coffee roast, dab of dark fruits
Palate - Soft carb. medium body, fairly bitter roasted malts. Finish is a bit dry, quite roasty
Overall - Not as good as I remember it when I had a bottle a few years ago, but it’s a decent stout, one of the better roasty one i’ve had
