3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark, clear brown beer with a thick, beige head. Coffee and malt aroma. Taste is an initial hit of hop followed by the chocolate, coffee and malt but it’s the hop that lingers into the finish.

cask @ Teucters, Edinburgh, rated 2015-07-28
Mahogany brown beer with creamy blonde head. Aroma has chocolate, peat, vanilla and berries. Flavor is dry with vanilla, mint, fruits and berries. Palate is thin and fluffy. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste has berries, metal and sweet malts. Very flavorless, has some downsides of cask ales. Interesting aroma on first nose, cannot put my finger on it now...

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another really good Mild. Very soft and sweet. The excellent brown sugar taste is intensified by the oily, sugary body. Just enough hop bitterness at the back to make you want another sip. Rich and rewarding.
