500ml Bottle brought back from Scotland by my friend AZ - thank you!!! Deep but clear and bright brick red with a large lasting creamy/foamy tan head. Smells like a light Scottish Ale with some light floral/herbal bitterness; toasty toffee sweetness, no alcohol of note. Taste - follows, but some decided metallic sourness ... perhaps a slightly old bottle? Note too off-putting, would be very nice fresh, on cask I think - maybe a hint of peat? Light body, solid cabonation, a little acidic (oh well) and quick-finishing ... maybe a little syrupy, but thin. If I ever see it again I will revisit.

Some roasted malts in the aroma. Flavour is not particularly intense but there’s slightly smokey, dark roasted malt taste in the finish.

Bottle from Booth’s. Mahogany with a cream head. Some toasty notes along with red fruits and some coffee. Quite smooth but a bit thin. OK.

wvhoran (393) - Tasmania, - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Dark red colour with a dissipating off-white head. Malty nose with toasted and caramel notes. Flavour has some malt depth, with some roast malt notes. Body is fairly thin, there is some nice hopping but it’s lacking other stout qualities. Still good.

BBHansen (323) - Køge, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle @ home. Appearance: pours red/brown with thin off-white head, with some lacing. Aroma/taste: caramel, oat and hint of chocolate and berries. Palate: low carbonation, medium body, notable sweetness, medium duration and a slightly oily texture. Overall: ok, but not what you might expect from a stout.
