3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting from late 2008.
On draught at the brewery. Murky, muddy brown donned by a flaccid, off-white that lasts and laces well. Chocolate-coated sultanas and damp peaty soil nose, quite subdued. Coffee mocha flavours upfront in the mouth, sweetish start also has a hint of honey. Quite musty and earthy with a little peat and wood mid-palate and long into the swallow. Mildly bitter malt peak in back, good firm body and nice residual carbonation gave the impression of a cask conditioned ale. Good depth of flavour here, works well, just sits a little heavy in the stomach to be sessionable. One was enough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Mahoganey colour with a volcanic tan head that is rocky and settles fairly quickly. Aromas of aniseed and chocolate which are a bit faint. A hidden sweetness in the flavour with some fennel and liquorice flavours that come through. Smooth and easy to drink with a good mouthfeel. Nice offering.

Was expecting a robust porter style. Smooth chocolate on the nose and in the taste, touch of coffee following in the aroma. Probably the one for a session for me, or the Harris bitter.
