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.

gowdy (722) - Erskine, - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle at Delday’s house. Pours with a large head, which is slightly off white colour, actually I guess it is quite beige. A strong tasting brew. Nice.

mikkopen (820) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2014
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour, tan head. Sweetish roasted malty aroma with chocolate and some fruity and sour notes. Roasted malt, coffee notes and sweet chocolate in the flavour. Tasty.

Dark brown pour tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and cocoa. Flavor is malty, coffee and dark chocolate. Smokey in the finish, hint of tobacco flavor too.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
2014-07-03. Black body with a modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is relatively modest but fairly roasty. Flavour is similar, dry roast throughout. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Moderately bitter, dry roasty finish is a bit more roasty than my preference. Bottle at Cairngorm brewery, Aviemore

doradobotella (92) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: Color negro intenso con una capa de espuma cremosa, abundante y duradera. Aroma: Sutil y agradable a malta tostada y chocolate con toques a mocca o incluso ahumados. Sabor: Muy bien compensado que recuerda al café y termina con un amargor ligeramente seco.

ReV2 (141) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Poured reddish black when held to the light. Thin tan head, chocolatey aroma. Slightly thin and oily mouthfeel, toast & nuts, detectable hops on the finish (traditional?), nice & moreish.

Rune (7775) - 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).

Quick rate. Dark dark brown, thin tan fuzzy head. Loads of coffee, chocolate and roasted notes. Tasty.

Oakes (12234) - 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 (4786) - 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.
