(bottle) Deep brown. Almost no head. Strong malt aroma. Flavor is mostly malt with hints of whisky. Almost no hops noted. The descriptions here seem to vary considerably - I wonder if the brewery has consistency issues?

Also called Stone of Destiny on the bottle. Well, the bottle is certainly accurate in calling this a hoppy bitter. Thae flavor starts out with the malts but finishes pretty hoppy. An interesting, ok beer.

scotty (1094) - SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2006
Attractive garnet colour, with a good frothy white head. The nose is an attractive mix of fruity hops and fresh malt. A well balanced, flavoursome palate is packed with sweetish malt and a clean citric acidity, there is a slightly spicy edge as well....delicious! The finish just goes on..& on..&on...QUALITY!

this is a decnt beer, but not one I would readily buy again. it just slips under the acceptable level of interest. Many, many cheaper beers are just as good or better

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2006
I paid $5.99 for this bottle and I think it’s a bit old ... it poure with a high amount of chunky sediment in the deep brown beer with a water foam head. Surprisingly fruity nose. The flavor is also roundly fruity ... grape, apple, pear maybe. Tangy finish with a hint of bark.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Cask @ NERAX 06. Pours a golden clear color with a white fizzy head. Nose is lightly hoppy and sweet. Taste is pure butterscotch with some light caramel and little bits of hop notes here and there.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 24, 2006
Initial nose of alcohol, later burnt caramel and flowers. The brew pours a hazy dark amber with honey highlights. The smallish frothy off white head is mostly diminishing with faint lace. The brew starts with a huge roasted malt front, that eases into a finish with caramel quality. The body is medium, dry, and soft.
