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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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%.............

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, can hear some carbonation as it pours to its dark cola-like colour with a frothy tan head. A warming malt aroma with a touch of caramal. A nice and light mouthfeel (not surprisingly), with a little bit of carbonation. An easy malty flavour with just a hint of chocolate. Would happily drink this over a session.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light aroma struggled to get any malts and no hops aroma. Some fruits as raisin but struggles to get that. Copperto dark brown in color, slight haze low head low carbonation. Lighter than a sweet stout. seems almost like a lager or a swartzbeer

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown with a small head. Unpleasant wet dog aroma. The taste faint, creamy and slightly sweet, devoid of any real interest. Quite a depressing beer.

Bottle, Sainsbury’s, Kidlington selling at £1 a bottle. I was quite shocked to note that this was only 2.8% but then I suppose brown ales are quite weak. Poured dark brown with barely a head to speak of, bit caramelly on the nose and sweet in the taste, I found this to be absolutley fine and nice to drink something that is still quite tasty despite it’s lack of oommph.
