ALLOVATE (3014) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2014
Deepest, darkest ruby with excellent clarity. A little life but then it fades; the head becomes little more than a tannish ring. Aroma of roasted chestnuts, boiled rice, carob beans and cocoa with a lick of coffee. Pasty, chalky mouthfeel. Quite dry with a heavy hand on roasted elements. Roast coffee and carob, charred wood and ash. Long ashen swallow. Lightly bitter, malt (sorghum I guess!) forward. Light in body and quite smooth past the spritzy front-end. Quite approachable. I was pleasantly surprised! (33cL, no date stamp, 5.3% ABV, sample from Dig & Fish) Ngejo (979) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - MAY 31, 2014
