cask & bottle conditoned, special
Resurrection beers are replicas of brews from the distant past, which exist only in brewing archives.
56/- was last brewed by Maclays of Alloa in 1909. Brewing at the Thistle brewery ceased in 1999, perhaps due to the overwhelming popularity of pale beers.
This beer is dark red, well-hopped and has a complex, luscious flavour.

Scopey (5526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Slow gusher! It pours cloudy deep brown with a thick beige head. The nose is wood, earth, toast, cocoa, meatiness, candy, must and some spice. The taste is toasty, earth, nice bitterness, meaty, caramel, old wood, chocolate, liquorice, leather, coffee, tobacco, warming alcohol, cola and dark fruit with a dry, somewhat spicy finish. Medium+ body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Interesting, good depth and balance. Another well executed beer from Luckie Ales. I’m really enjoying what they do.

AshtonMcCobb (2117) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
50cl bottle thanks to Anthony. This is an ale that definitely is in the Scottish tradition. The extra level of alcohol has brought out a rich raisin aroma and taste and there is just enough freshness on the finish to make you want more - shame I ended up sharing this one.

allmyvinyl (2177) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle shared at home. Pours dark red-brown with a thick creamy head. Big malt and raisin aromas, luscious. Nuts and biscuit also. Caramel and toffee. Lovely subtle balancing bitterness to all that malt-sweet. A stunning beer.

JohnRMurdoch (2960) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2013
500ml bottle from AleseLA. Dark chestnut brown, reasonable head. Fruity chocolate malt aroma. Sweet fruity liquorice malt flavour. Sharp with sweet aftertaste. Not a bad beer.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 1, 2013
bottle at home from alesela
pours clear deep ruby-garnet with a light off-white crema of a head, giving off a nose redolent of an autumn trek through a forest, with red berries, damp soil and crunchy leaves. The body is fairly full, yet light, with gentle carbonation. Its fairly rich, with a big booze hit up front, slightly astringent burnt toast malt and plenty of dried fruit sweetness afterwards in a long fruity finish.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle from BeerHive, Edinburgh [220213]
Deep chestnut brown, clear, frothy slightly off white head, good colour
Aroma of rich caramel malts, quite rich soft toffee, touch of doughy malt, soft dark fruits, some raisin, mainly rich malts
Taste of smooth malts, rich dark caramel, rich toffee, soft raisin, dough, alcohol very well hidden
Palate - soft to medium carb, medium body, smooth texture. Finish as main flavour, smooth rich caramel, light roast
Overall - Another well made beer from Luckie Ales

zimbo (483) - SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Drunk via cask at the Hanging Bat December 21st. Another palate pleaser with a mouthfeel and taste like no other. Exactly what Rich has said below. Except it seems I liked it more. WIthout a doubt the best Scottish Old Ale brewed at any time in living memory. Bottle on 02/02/14. Wonderfully alive deep with great depth of flavour & complexity. Lovely restrained smoky quality. Could be confused as a collaborative beer with Schlenkerla. Mmmm. Unassuming, great value and puts most £10 and above craft bottles to shame.
