12 oz bottle from Wilburís. Brown, almost black with ruby hues, a tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, coffee, chocolate, light hops and light booze. Similar flavor, strong, malty and a little sweet. Medium body with a smooth creamy feel. Nice

Ah, after a lovely time on the balcony of the Mailbox I needed some proper beer so BrewDog called and we answered. This went down a dream, lipsmackingly good, bit thin but that helped in the sweaty heat of downtown Birmingham. Better than WeeHeavy as it wasnít overpowering. Yep, Iím rambling, suffice to say good stuff.

Appearance: Black with thin ivory/white head which dies down to leave a glass ring.
Aroma: Coffee, peaty, bitter chocolate, roast and smoked qualities, with a woodiness and resinous.
Taste: Low/medium sweetness and bitterness, medium sourness, caramel with peat notes. A touch of umami and saltiness.
Palate: Thick texture, medium body and mouthfeel, prickly carbonation, lingering astringent finish with touch of tartness, alcohol warmth and a lasting saltiness.
Comments: Delicious, certainly will have this one again. Left a glass lace.

Keg at Brewdog Brum. Very similar to the Ten Pin porter also sampled during the BBB photoshoot. Sticky, some tobacco and treacle. Very easy to swig.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No real head on this pour, deep dark brown with red highlights.
Coffee, brown sugar, earthy hops and toffee all on the nose, really rich.
Full bodied, a little mocha, slight hop resins. Brown sugar, banana bread all add to the strong malt profile.
The finish is malty, but with a slight tartness with a good earthy hop bitterness.

On tap at Great Divide. Dark red/brown with a light tan head. Lots of malt up front, roasted caramel/toffee notes, light dark fruit and light smoke. Taste is sweet caramel, nuts with some roasted chocolate notes and a light alcohol warmth to it. Finish is light roasted bitterness. Medium body.

330ml bottled 3/4/13, pours practically black, malty aroma with chocolate together with pilsner style aromas, really well balanced with dried fruits, cherries and berries. Finish is smooth and well balanced, very nice. Another good one from Great Divide.

Toffee, Chocolate aroma. No head on mine but might be because of the glass I'm using. Really great tasting. My first Scottish ale so not much experience to compare too but it's a keeper to me.
