First tasted this in the Hogshead, Paisley in October 1999. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin creamy tan head. Roast malt in the strong lingering aroma. Creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give plenty of flavours with roast coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel, and raisins. Dusty hops give a dry bitter tang to the dry aftertaste with a touch of liquorice and ash. Finish is well balanced with sweet currants evident. An excellent session mild.

Draft Nitro head settles down quickly. Dark brownish black. Thin tan head does not last. Watery mouthfeel. I HATE Guiness and this is only slightly better. Toasty burnt coffee flavor is faint. Easily forgettable and not really enjoyable or something I will look for again. Weak.
