500ml bottle. Clear very dark brown colour, foamy off-white head that leaves some lacing, and aroma of malt, dark chocolate, caramel. Taste is roasted malty with chocolate, berry fruit notes and an earthy bitterness. Watery mouth feel, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry roasted bitter finish. Quite OK.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark bitter with a slight brown glow to it and the thinnest of heads. It has a more than average bitterness to it which dominates its character.

On cask at The Paisley Beer Festival. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair beige head. A lovely aroma of chocolate, roasty malt, liquorice alcohol and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A nice chocolate and roasty malt linger.
