Sweet roasted malt and big iron notes. Clean yeast character. A little cloying. Superb head retention and lacing. A little too much of that iron character for me. Fruity notes on the finish.Earned the Schwarz-buckler (Level 3) badge!
Slightly infected I think. Tart red currant, milk chocolate and wood on the nose. No Islay Barrel character in the mouth. Red berry, chilli heat, cloying dark cherry. A slight smoke character but it’s overwhelmed by sourness unfortunately.
