Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Very soft carbonation.
Taste: Dominating caramel malty, mild roasted malt and mild fruity.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Cask at The Clachan. It pours clear brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is wood, earth, caramel, roasted malt, dark fruit and a hint of smoke. The taste is bitter-sweet, roasty, wood, leather, varnish, caramel, dark fruit and berry with a lingering dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty good depth for the style. Well-integrated flavour. Decent.
