Pours a deep brown colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is muted, with a presence of toasted malts and light coffee scents, there is also some slight fruit notes. Taste is a mild sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Really enjoyed this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 Dark brown color, creamy head, leaving a nice lacing. In aroma dominate roasted malts and smoke, but some chocolate notes are noticable as well. Taste rather delicate - dark, overburnt bread, smoke and peat. Low bitterness. Drinkable, not tiring beer. Even though I cannot say it impressed me much.

One of Scotland’s best dark ales. I love this beer. In fact Orkney Brewery brew some exceptional beers, always consistent and each as good as the other

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
a good example of the fruitier malty English style old ales - dark on the pour...pitted fruits, chocolate, tobacco. Smooth if slightly fizzy palate. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Totally black pour with almost no head at all. Coffee, dark cherries and smoked plums both in the nose and on the tongue. Aftertaste is full of dried, smoked plums and bittersweet coffee candies. Interesting beer, though not a stile I like too much.
