12 oz bottle poured into a Central Waters tulip.
7.5% ABV, Bottled On: OCT notched on the label.

A - Even held up to light Sláinte's deep copper mahogany color almost looks black. The tall but quiet pour rouses up a thin but full layer of tan foam which sinks back into the beer slowly, creating a halo of bubbles around the tulip.

S - Central Waters has a fantastic way of generating really chocolaty aromas from malt, usually in their stouts, but also in Sláinte. Milk chocolate and dry cocoa both blend for a smooth opening that's quickly confronted by peat smoked malt notes of gritty earth. Deep caramelization of the malt leaves undertones of caramel cube and toffee in the background of this hop-less aroma.

T - Caramelization of the wort is evident through the lingering sweetness and malty flavor that this beer offers; gooey caramel and toffee melted with soft milk chocolate and dusted with a pinch of cocoa. Again, peat smoked malt pokes through, gently overtaking the sweetness with a finish of dry earthiness.

M - Medium-full bodied, this savory and rich beer has a total lack of hops (perception) but it's not without balance. It's light smokiness aids in creating a dry, almost lightly bitter finish that suppresses the sweetness a bit for a superb finish!

O - Central Waters Sláinte is another generously malty beer that exceeds expectations across the board. It's deep and complex malt aroma is the perfect usher into the flavor of similar malt complexity and depth all while remaining balanced and smooth-drinking. Alcohol, while higher in content, is almost undetectable in this smooth beer making it a lovely winter warmer!
