AshtonMcCobb (2483) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from the Scottish Real Ale shop. Appearance - opaque black and silky with a creamy fawn head. Nose - caramel and biscuits. A hint of spice. Taste - caramel and liquorice over some biscuits again. A touch of smoky earthiness. Liquorice finish. No chocolate though so should be a dry stout in my opinion. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry crunchy finish. Overall - a fairly complex stout for the alcohol level even if it is atypical.

Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Dark brown body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of wood and lightly roasted malt. Flavour of plum and dark malts. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Very easy to drink.

Scopey (6716) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness. It pours near black with a small beige head. The nose toasty, earth, coffee, berry and liquorice. The taste is bitter, earthy, pepper, roasted malt, liquorice, some astringency and charred wood with a dry finish. Lightish body and prickly carbonation. A watery if truth be told. So-so.

Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, roasted malts, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. A thin but not bad stout.

Nuffield (3668) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Very dark brown/black, thin head. Big, classically vegetal aroma with some orange marmelade. A bit of texture to the body but a really awful flavor. None of the richness of a stout. Dandelions and cut grass. Light bitterness. Something is wrong, but it’s at a good venue, so I assume it is the beer. (cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2012
Tasted this at the Fox & Hounds, Houston in May 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with a thick creamy buff white head. Strong roast malt long in the nose. Thick and creamy texture to the mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts deliver a strong burnt toast and roast grain note at the start with coffee beans, bitter chocolate and liquorice all evident. Slight prickle of dry hop flowers present in the brief aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with sweet winey blackcurrants in there - just. An excellent session stout and highly recommended.
