Dark amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is quite blank. Some nuts and burnt malt in it. A little bit too sweet for my taste despite decent bitterness. Normal beer - nothing too special.

No particular smell other then you would expect of this kind of beer. Itís n ot as dark as a guiness, but smells alike. Nutty in taste, but also caramel and dark chocolate.

[cask, The Baillie, Edinburgh] Coppery brown coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma is slightly nutty, with some cereal. Decent, rising bitter finish on the taste, not too bad at all. Some chocolate in there, just around the edges

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma - Malty with emphasis on chocolate & dark crystal but still allow a subtle hop aroma supplied by Fuggles and Cascade to come through.
Appearance - Classic dark brown 80 shilling colour with redness at the edges. Bright & clear. Head tight, off white, lovely lacing all the way down the glass.
Taste - medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Discernable spec malts - chocolate, crystal 150, crystal 400
Palate - full body, thick feel, average carbonation (natural carbonation as in cask), long and satisfying finish,. Perfect balance.
The malt balance is perfect, aroma hop are present but subtle, bittering is just right, mouthfeel is full, taste lingers just long enough.
Iíd go as far as to say that this is the best interpretation of the heavy style within or outwith Scotland.
