Rostosto (31) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Lovely biscuity beer and a near perfect example of a great malty Scottish ale. Great balance of sweetness and bitterness with a wee hop kick at the end. Almost stout flavours on the tounge and the palate with herbs and slight raisiny vanilla butterscotch tones. Looks good too, liquid caramel. Brilliant beer!
