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.

Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Dark brown to black color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly roast, lightly liquorice, a bit weird. Average to medium carbonation. Don’t like it.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
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

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Very dark. Sweet character, little bit of butter, some nuttiness but gotta get that diacetyl out of there.

wimpyjoe (3871) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Cask @ Master Mariner, New Brighton. Very dark with a creamy off-white head. Lovely and smooth in texture with assorted aromas including a light roast, it has a milky aftertaste.

kwik-lime (1306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Enjoyable roasted malt and coffee, hint of licquorice but I seemed to go off it as I got through the pint as milk chocolate came through a lot more. Should probably try it again earlier in the night...
