Dark brown color, almost black; it has a very low carbonation, and therefore the head is small, creamy, of which only a few bubbles persist. The aroma is mild but interesting, with a balanced blend of caramel, treacle, malt, roasted malt, a hint of firewood and dark chocolate.
It’s full bodied, and round, thanks to the low carbonation too; it’s defined by the brewer as "Scottish Barley Wine", but it’s not as sweet and rich as a Barley Wine; it has a quite good flavor of dark caramel with light smoke; the bitterness is relatively low, and the final rather short.
Good, but it lacks of depth, that could acquire with just a bit more of bitterness or malt.
