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.

Rune (10684) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by Stefan at a rating session. The body is black as pitch. Tan-coloured head, diminishing to a remaining layer. Loose lacing. Roasted dark malts to the nose with moderate hints of liquorice. Slightly roasted taste with a touch of dried fruits and earth, mid-sweet. Roasted ending as well. Smooth and nice in the mouth, a little thin bodied though (Tårnrommet, Tromsø 15.05.2014).

Oakes (14841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
Dark brown. It’s very sweet, w a fair bit of butter that might in smaller quantity add roundness but here is really too much.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Meny Oslo City. Tanned finger-thick cream head. Near black body with ruby edges. Coffee up front, set off by a whiff of dark dried fruits and mild earthy hops. Creamy mouthfeel, good body. Soft bitter-sweet malt flavor. Creamed coffee and gentle roast. Mellow coffee-accented malt finish. Another well-crafted bottle (i.e. pasteurised and filtered) from Cairngorm.

djoeye (3148) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2014
Scents of roasted smokey chocolate malts, hints of hazelnut oil, dried berries, sweet mocca coffee. Body black-brown, head beige diminishing, moderate laceworks inside my mug. Taste of chocolate malts, nuts, dark berries, mocca coffee, hints of sweet liquorice. Smooth to palate, just a little dry. This moderate abv stout is really easy to drink, for those who normally prefer standard lagers/pilseners. Recommendable. (500ml brown bottle abv 4.4% b@Kjeller 5, enjoyed@home. 9feb2014)

nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2014
black as the night. thin head. extremely nutty, smokey, cheesy? nah, that’s just the nut... hints of coffee and licorice. a little thin but easy to drink (can’t have just one) and exceptionally full-bodied for the abv. still, this is one you really want on cask.

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours very, very dark brown, with a tiny tan head, little lacing. Big roasted aromas though, coffee, chocolate, liquorice. Bitter taste, more coffee. Bit thin.

Coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and hints of dried fruits and rubber in the aroma. Black with a tan head. Medium sweet and light bitterness. Light to medium body with a soft carbonation. Dry finish. Overall a nice stout.
