ALLOVATE (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
5 on 5 for appearance. A radiant, fiery chestnut with a dense and tight, off-white foam that lasts and weaves a messy, tick lace. Rather dusty, plummy, oaken nose with inklings of rust, butterscotch, smoked pork hock, spicy higher alcohol and leather. Quite soft, sweet and toffeeish in the mouth. Alcohol kicks like a mule and warms up the sweet, nutty caramel finish. Light oak and cedar notes, blood and rust with a plummy backdrop. Defined woody, nutty notes over throw any nuance of hops. Pretty boring drinking really. I can’t get excited about this one. Least it looked good. (50cL, BB 31/12/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Taste is sweetish malty, toffee, caramel, powdered chocolate, bread, fruity plum, nutty and some lingering light grassy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, warm earthy finish. Nicely drinkable.
