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.

A perfect looking stout! Almost black body with just a hint of copper, with a quite large, creamy, light brown head that never reduces beyond a good layer, and lots of foam is left on the glass. The aroma is strong and rosted with mostly coffee, also ash and a fruity backdrop. The taste is not demanding, a light sweetness is followed by a light bitterness. The flavours however are quite strong, with dark roasted coffee, ash, chalk and fruits and berries in the back. The beer feels rather light with a dry texture, the carbonation is moderate, and unfortunately there are some traces of metal in the aftertaste. Even so, this is a wonderful stout that I’d love to have again. Unusually tasty for such a low ABV.

Just about a perfect stout!! Deliciously strong flavoured and balanced. A striking name that promises and the bottle delivers. Owen made candyapple.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2013
Not a very nice aroma, staying around the malts, peat and bourbon. Unexpected for a stout. The flavour is much better, with chocolates and vanila, kind of a cremy, slick feel, very benevolent.

500ml bottle from the brewery. Big tan head, body is very dark - near enough black. Nose is coffee and tar. Flavours of coal, toffee, chocolate, berries. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Nothing too complex about this, just a very good stout.

Black with medium frothy head. Coffee-like, slightly burnt. Light bitterness. A bit watery in the end, but rather pleasant soft stout nevertheless.

50 cl bottle @ Töysä. BBE 28.05.2014, rated on 06.07.2013
Aroma has British hops, toffee, some licorice and hints of smoke. Flavour has British hops too. Also toffee, somewhat salty licorice, coffee and hints of ash. The roasted notes are nice, the salty and British aromas are not.
