stravale (3065) - 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 ....

jmgreenuk (9455) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin bubbly light tan head. The aroma is malt light caramel and red berry fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, light sweet with a slightly watery strong hop liqourice bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice and drinkable but the liqourice does dominate and that’s not so good.
