"Dark brown in colour, Old Remedial is a strong ale, brewed using honey and roast malt to create a characterful and assertive flavour."

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2012
1/2 pint @ Moulin brewery. Sickly sweet aroma, deep amber color, not very bubbly. Taste is only OK, good aftertaste though. Sweet & malty, for sure.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Good nose (with grape). Red brown color, big head. Bitter but with a good malty backbone. Drinkable and decent. (cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

On tap @ Moulin. Pours a colour with a red hue and a thin crema head. The nose has demerara sugar and an earthy note. The palate is medium to full bodied with a rich tangy texwture and a bitter finish. Overall, good example of a strong British ale.

On cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, 2012. Pours a dark amber colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of toffee, treacle, Weetabix malt, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering yeast and alcohol.

tombyars (1328) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2012
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!

[cask at Moulin Inn] Of all the Moulin beers, this was my least favourite – it looks a decent deep reddish brown, although there was a fair amount of haze evident. Within thirty seconds it was totally flat. Aromas of malt and a touch of chocolate, on the palate it was sharply bitter, with an off-putting coppery aftertaste that got worse as it went on. The only solution was to drink faster, but that wasn’t an enjoyable option either. The Moulin Inn is lovely - but the beer, unfortunately, is not [30042011]

3 April 2011, on tap at brewpub. Dark copper clear no bubbles. Dark coffee grounds w some molases malt. Med full body and slightly fizzy. Decent malty coffee taste. For a British session stout it is pretty good.
