4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330ml (2014) – cellared for 2 years. Served at room temperature. Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with a ruby tint. Head is small, lightly tanned, and mostly lasting. Aroma is rich and malty with notes of earthy hops (light); smokey toast, caramelized dates, sultana’s, figs, chocolate fudge, burnt brown sugar and a dash of vanilla essence. Flavour is smooth with a very light earthy bitterness, toasted malts, roasted barley, burnt caramel, muscatels, dark rum and raisin chocolate, treacle (light), aniseed (light) and some smokey/peated notes in the finish. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation, a silky texture and a superb finish. A truly superb Scotch ale in every sense!

Smooth and malty, caramel, earthy, light peat. Little to no hop character. Warming and not too sweet. I’m a big fan of Scotch & Old Ale and this ticks all the boxes. Lovely.
