2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A beer with a nice dark colour and good looking foam. I was not too carzy about the taste of it though. It seemed to lack a little in the finnish and it did not have the full body that one could hope to find in a good ale. While it was not a bad beer I would prefer to drink the porter from the same brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, label as shown.
Pours a clear hazelnut brown with a medium-sized light beige head. Good retention, decent lacing.
Aroma of ripe plums, toffee and bready malt.
Medium-bodied bitter with a solid, smooth mouth feel. Very moderate carbonation. Velvety and comforting. :=)
Characterful flavour of caramel, roasted malt and some barnyard notes. Bitterness increases towards the finish. Moderately bitter, lingering after taste.
A smooth and satisfying bitter, more complex and rewarding than many. Down the hatch - next one, please!

I have the same problem with this beer as I do Stag, it’s not available anywhere except from the brewery direct. A gorgeous dark brown ale with an off white head. The taste is dominated by roasted malts and caramel, very similar to stag, except this has an added hint of smokiness to improve the flavour. Great for any lover of dark Scottish ales.
