A Scottish stout with a wonderful rich dark colour. A smooth full bodied beer with subtle bitterness giving way to late sweetness and underlying roast barley hints.

harrisoni (14587) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
500ml bottle from Dobbies garden centre, Ashford. Black beer with lasting tan head. Roasted dark malts on the aroma. Drinkable in the mouth with some fullness from a creamy toffeeness. Nowhere near as good as in cask, but then that’s what pasteurisation does for you.. Coffee on the finish is very pleasant. The best of the Scottish beers I had this afternoon by some way.

BeerCast_Rich (1903) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2010
[500ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours very dark, black with no highlights to speak of. It’s pretty smoky and roasty on the nose. This continues on the palate, which is very smooth and slightly sweet. With the roasty smokiness at the same time, this is a seriously good stout and I imagine would be awesome on cask [23042010]

imdownthepub (11093) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Notcutts Garden Centre, Oxford. Black with tan head. This stands up very well to the cask version as I had both in the same evening. Initially there are bitter, roasty malts dominating, gradually this changes over to chocolate notes then a sweetish chocolate. Deep and interesting. Good stuff.
