3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from a Scottish Aldi during their beer festival: shared with a mate in Edinburgh on 24th Oct 2014, our last beer of a good crawl followed by some bottles at his gaff. Poured a deep, hazy brown, on top a thin tanned head. Mild smoky nose, with a dark chocolate and red fruit hint. Taste is the same, but in a different order of strength: chocolate then Peat smoke followed by the fruitiness. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated, a pleasant night cap.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Black with an off white head. Aroma smoky and sweet. Full flavoured I think the peat smoke works better here than in other peat smoked beers I have tried. Very drinkable beer.
