imdownthepub (11474) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Keg at The Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Black with fizzed head. Some treacle notes, quite heavy and a fruity, plum like flavour in amongst a wet cardboard note. Itís ok if you like that sort of thing, but I found it a little dull.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2011
[500ml bottle, Waitrose, Edinburgh] Very dark reddish brown, almost black pour with a thin off-white head. Lovely nose of roasted chocolate malts and coffee with a musty yeastiness. The roasted theme continues on the tasting, primarily coffee, but there are some fruity hops in there as well. Good stuff, tends to be a bit on the thin side as the abv is pretty low, but that can be forgiven [13032008]

AshtonMcCobb (4070) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2011
50cl bottle. Dark-brown/black in colour - generally opaque but some glints of light around the edges. It has a thick creamy head! On the nose there is sweet malt and a hint of coffee. The taste has much more coffee and some miilk chocolate. The palate is a little more than medium-bodied, the texture is very creamy and the end is quite elegant - no alcohol burn, just a gentle clean finish. The overall impression is of a very enjoyable beer, rich but restrained.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2011
Deep black with a persistent off-white head. Big, ballsy chocolate and charred coffee beans. Smooth medium body, bitter finish. Watered-down Guinness on steroids. And that isnít meant to be an insult.

500 cc bottle, dark brown/black colour, nice foamy head. Smell: dried fruits. Taste: plums, roasted malts, dried fruits, banana, some sweetness. Great beer! The best I found in the supermarkets in Scotland!

Bottle from Waitrose. Dark brown in colour with a slight, off-white head. Big roasty malt aroma, with some dark chocolate. Earthy malt aroma, with more chocolate, black coffee and a slight touch of sourness. Finish was pretty bitter. Good.

Borresteijn (5471) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2009
50cl Bottle brought from Scotland, thanks mom&Henk! ABV 4.6%. Clear reddish brown to black colour, stable light beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bit of dark fruits and a hint of chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, liquorice, some light sweet dark fruits. Coffee bitter finish. Nice beer, but a bit shy, itís a bit thin.
