On tap at Highlander Pub. Pours a good size frothy brownish head and dissipates to a thin head. Has a deep dark amber appearance. Pretty good lacing. Aromas are light roasted malt, toffee and caramel. Flavours are mostly malts, hints of coffee and chocolate. There’s a little bit of the rum hints in the mix. A fairly sweet finish on the palate. Good retention. Nice slick and slightly oily mouthfeel.

Quick dissipating beige foamy head atop an opaque deep brown body. Nose of smokey malt. Very good body. Considering I’m not a huge Scottish fan but this is great stuff. Flavour has it all - mellow wooden cask, vanilla, nice toasty malt, brown sugar and smoke. Very nice. Congrats!
