2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Pot Still, Glasgow. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is soft, light sweetness, caramel/toffee, wood and brown bread. The taste is mildly bitter, toasty, brown bread, cereal, caramel, leather and wood with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Simple and easy drinking stuff. Fine to accompany a malt, but far from a challenging brew.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Merchant, Glasgow, 4th August 2014. Deep tawny brown, bubbly head which diminishes quickly, minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, no discernible hops. Flavour is all malt: chocolate-coated toffee and nuts from the high proportion of dark malts. Very full bodied and somewhat sticky, but not cloying. A good dark ale, but too strong and rich to be described as a 60/-.
