A fine ale! Strong and with rich flavours of rich malt, fruit, oak and alcohol. I’ve had lots of this over the years and I always come back for more :)

50cl bottle in a pint glass. Pours a thinnish dark brown liquid with little head but quite lively carbonation. Flavours are typical Scottish ale with fruits and yeast leading to a fairly bitter finish. Seems to vary quite a bit from batch to batch. A reasonable example.

A great cheap beer in Scotland. Malt & caramel, with some roastiness and maybe some smoky phenols. Very drinkable for the strength. A favourite.

Not bad. Heady. Malt fruit nuts all there . I just found it just a wee bit too much alcohol on taste - a bit cloying?......hey would take another though.
