"Elderberry Black Ale"
Introduced to Scotland by Welsh druids in the 9th Century, elderberry black ale was part of the Celtic Autumn festivals when the "elders" would make this strong ale and pass the drink round the people of the village. The recipe was taken from a 16th Century record of domestic drinking in the Scottish Highlands. Elderberries were used for many natural remedies to cure sciatica, other forms of neuralgia, influenza and rhumatism as they contain tannins and fruit oils.
Ebulum is made from roasted oats, barley and wheat boiled with herbs then fermented with ripe elderberries.
A rich black ale with fruit aroma, silky soft texture,soft roasted flavour and gentle finish.
Recommended with stewed and baked foods.
Drink lightly chilled from a straight glass.

Some stout like qualities: coffeeish bite. I didn’t taste that much fruit though, a good beer, but not as unique as I would have hoped for the money I paid.

For a dark beer, it actually had some flavor. It was a fairly flavorful beer,

I found it less complex, less sweet and by far my least favourite of the Heather Ales Ltd. family.
