3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First tasted this at the Glagow Winter Ale Festival in September 1996. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany in colour with a thick buff coloured head. Strong sweet aromas of malt and figs. Creamy texture to the mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a moist maltloaf base and treacle toffee with syrupy fruit notes of dates and plums. Dusty earthy notes of bitter hops give a dryness to the short aftertaste. Sweet malt present in the drying finish with oak cask, cough linctus and liquorice flavours. A bit rough round the edges but an ok Strong Ale. Worth taking a trip to the Moulin Inn and trying all four!
