Friday's Beer ..... Redux !

Since my first adventure for today came to be such a letdown ...

We bring to you from Daleside Brewery Yorkshire The Very Respectable ... Morocco Ale !

They say the recipe is 300 years old and still followed faithfully to this day!

Supposedly named for its dark complexion as like the Moorish invaders of Spain.

The bottle is 500ml and the rating 5.5% abv.


This dark treat pops nicely and pours with a warm tan coloured head that dissipates into a lacy skim after a bit. The body is clear and a dark coffee colour with slight effervescence sustained throughout the whole glass.
The nose is really something special with a grassy meadows sort of scent riding on top of some powerful chocolate and coffee aromas with spices to boot. Quite an experience to absorb before you even get to the first taste.

And don't worry baby because that first mouthful is a real joy!

The dark malts colour your palate with everything that the first whiff promised. There's chocolate and coffee, burnt caramel and nuts with a bakeshops selection of rich bread and spices.
She's a wonderfully complex and strong experience from start to finish. The sensation on your tongue is creamy. The finish smooth and with a lingering bit of coffee taste.

It's all good..... I would have no problem finishing two or three in short order and I'd bet the same for anyone who likes a rich full bodied ale.
Personally I have no problem understanding why this recipe has been preserved for over three centuries!
