3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2012 On cask at Jocktoberfest at the Black Isle Brewery. Pours a dark red colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with some grassy hop notes. Quite yeasty overall with a long caramel linger. Mouth-feel is a little oily. (5463 13). Unfined cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Pours a cloudy red colour with a decent white head. Aroma of barley sugar, strawberry and caramel. Similar flavours with lingering caramel and strawberries again. Nice and dry with mild carbonation. I much prefer this version. Also had this with nitrogen as Black Isle Better at Nobles for the Black Isle Total Tap Takeover. The nitrogen gave it a thick, creamy beige head and the linger was nice and malty.
