2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Medium brown with minimal head. Aroma was mildly of caramel. This was a bit watery in the mouth, which is unsurprising given the ABV. The flavour was of sweet malt with a touch of hops. Ok.

Bubbly stout in appearance, with an off-white very short head. Scents of caramel and hop. Slightly watery, slightly bitter, quite sweet. Very carbonated. In mouth it has caramel and sugar, maybe some strawberries and cream.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black Isle, Scotland august 05. I thougth this would be a typical, sweet, malty and boring beer - but I was fooled. The color is dark brown, the head nice and the aroma is malty with notes of caramel. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, caramel, a bit of chocolate and a light sweetness. The finish has a very weak bitterness. It has a lot of taste in spite of the low ABW (2.8), and if you find this beer, you definitely should try it!

Retired and I am little surprised as I bought this in Amsterdam two years ago. A great beer at 2.8% but I like a little more body and abv-s to my beers. Page 305 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 322 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

500ml bottle. Pours almost black, but with a brown rather than a reddish colour when held to the light; off-white head fades quickly; malty aroma; sweet malty taste with a dry, nutty content; dryish finish.

Bottle: Deep brown coloured, small and stable, slightly lacing off-white head; moderate roast-malty, a bit metallic nose, nutty, too; light bitter, mainly dry flavour, light bodied; hints of caramel, nuts, roasted malt in the faint bitter finish. Not unpleasant, quite tasty for a beer of 2.8%.............

Bottle, lovely nutty aroma and pours a real dark brown. This beer has a sweet malty after taste. One of the best beers of this style.
