3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Almost clear, reddish-amber coloured, bigger lacy & stable off-white head; malty and slight roasty nose, dried fruits and herbal hops detectable; light to medium bodied, creamy MF, moderate bitter-sweet flavour; lingering citrussy and roasty finish - with traces of cacao-powder - and a lingering hoppy aftertaste. A goody.....

Bottle at The Penguin Beer Bobbing/13 Beers of Halloween tasting. Deep clear ruby with a fine mushroom halo. Decent buttered malt loaf aroma. Fine malty refreshment with insinuating notes of caramel, fig and malt loaf. Bready, a bit buttery and good.

50cl bottle from Glen Moray distillery shop. Pours a very dark amber with a nice head. The nose has fruit cake and hints of ginger. The taste has fruit loaf which turns into ginger bread in the finish. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a clean and quite bitter finish. Overall, a well made ale.

500ml bottle, trade with JohnRMurdoch. Frothy, beige, bubbly head. Clear mahogany coloured body. Laces nicely. Good looking, indeed. Slightly roasted malts on the nose, mid-sweet. Malt-accented taste with nuts and caramel followed by dried fruity, bitter ending. A fine version of the style (hotel room, Edinburgh 10.08.2013).
