Cask; Status uncertain. Watch out for this evil character… Borders legends say the Dunter, a malevolent red-capped goblin, inhabits ruined castles and guards the English-Scottish borders from intruders. This evil creature is impossible to outrun, but we like to think he’ll let you pass if you have share a wee dram of his potion. The truth of this legend will never be known, however, it is irrefutable that the Dark Dunter is bursting of oatmeal and chocolate aromas, complemented by dark roasted malts and a rich aftertaste. Using over six grains gives this beer an evil malty bite.

Cask, Slug & Lettuce, Leicester. Aromas are dark syrup and toffee with earthy, herbal notes and hints of barnyard. Lightly smoky with brown sugar. Flavours are weetabix and toffee with raisins and damp florals notes. A bit flat and sweet for me.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2016
Draft at Edinburgh airport Wetherspoons. Light bitterness but quite heavy body. This was surprisingly lacking in flavour but easy to knock back. Needs more depth.

500ml bottle (Maxxxima, Riga)
Pleasant sweet malty aroma, even some tarry aspects. A bt sticky palate. Taste does have a nice smokiness. Sweet, and a little sticky. Big malty finish. Decentish.
