On tap @ the Cramond Inn. Pours opaque black with just a hint of chestnut towards the bottom of the glass. The nose has soggy bean flakes. The taste has mild chocolate and nuts. The palate is surprisingly medium bodied and creamy in texture despite the low alcohol level. Overall a lovely mild with a surprisingly good body.
