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.

[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 (10260) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2010
From Dobbies. Rock n’ Roll. Glossy pitch, barely a glint of ruby; thick, sinking khaki swell of head. Solid smoked nutty and coal smoke aroma; buttered charcoal flavour underpinned with a wholesome, lip-smacking roastiness, and hops. Thick, smoky stout with hints of peat, butter, Lindt 70% and....fossil fuels. Good.
