4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A rare treat this cask beer shows the depth of flavour and substance which matches most beers twice its potency. Good sappy core supports a range of complex dark and sweet flavours. Delicious.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-06-30. Black body nice tan head and lace. 4+ Aroma is relatively mild, light toasty roast, mild herbal touches. Flavour is different, quite sweet dark malt core is almost milk stout like, with sort of an herbal quality to it the roast, whispers of licorice never quite gets there. Smooth average bodied palate, soft light carbonation is nice but wants to be weightier. Okay. Cask at Grog and Gruel, Fort William
