This maybe a bit of an odd ale. But not bad but at least maybe overly named in full as "McKinney's Triple Chin Irish Dark Ale". For me a dark ale ought to be malty like Neustadts 10W30. This example of MTCIDA is not malty but rather a bit cidery and even strawberryish. This is accentuated by a hop selection with an acidic green flavour as well as fruity yeast. If I was told this was a lager I might believe it. If I was told that it was a fruit wheat I might believe it, too. To be fair, I am wondering if I have a bad bottle when I read the brewer's description:
A mouthful in more ways than one! Our namesake Irish Ale is a very complex blend of exotic malts including Two Row, Carastan, Chocolate, Black and roasted barley. We chose Goldings as a bittering and aroma hop. The bold colour belies the eyes as your tastebuds soon discover that this dark ale won't really affect your overall mass.I really do not recognize it when checking reviews at RateBeer. I will check back on it when I have another opportunity.
