Bottle from niquillis - thank you! The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and plums. Taste of mild malt, peaches, mild fruits, plums, milk chocolate, mild oak, rum and dried apricots. Gentle and soft finish. Very quaffable - I enjoyed it.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton [131114]
Very dark brown, frothy tan head, good lacing
Aroma of very fruity dark malts, jammy tart dark fruits, no roast, plummy
Taste of jammy dark fruits, sweet sticky fruity dark malts, some bitter dark chocolate, getting some bitter spicy hop in there, quite complex
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, sticky quite sweet, some tart jammy fruits, liquorice. Finish of roasted malts, some bitter roast, soft dark chocolate
Overall - Very fruity malts in this, sort of a cross between an old ale and stout. Unusually over fruity malts, maybe a tad too much.

from bottle, a pretty good brown ale, a nice old fashioned beer, with the modern addition of ABV, plenty of different tastes going on in the bacjground, and a nice brown all acidic finish, I liked this ....
