33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Clear brown colour with a nice huge white head. Smooth aroma of maltness, caramel, dried fruit and a touch of alcohol. Alcoholic flavour with a smooth maltprofil combined with sweet malt, caramel and dried fruitness, ends up very little bitter.

Bottle, Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Pours a dark brown, dark red tinge about it, big off-white head that laced reasonably well. Quite a hoppy nose, alcohol in the nose, with some coffee malt, plummy and winter fruits. Taste is quite sweet, malty, alcohol and a bite of bitter hops that lasts all the way through to the palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale liquid and whitish head. Alcohol in aroma. Caramel but nothing special. Not bad but not that good either. Too much alcohol in my opinion.
