cgarvieuk (21612) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle at home ... Deep solid black ... light chocolate and malts...very coffee ... huge ammount of roast malts... very smooth very well balanced... This is one of the UK ales that i think the scores doesnt reflect just how good a pint this is.

harrisoni (17284) - 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.
