3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Halfway House, Edinburgh. Described to me as “A classic heavy” at the bar. Medium dark reddish brown color. Full-flavored, rounded, and fruity. Relatively sweet, but pleasantly so. There is a nice dryness coming from both hops and roasting. Good dry finish. I like it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small beige head. Deep dark brown body with light carbonation. Faint sugary aroma. Dryish-sweet papery roasty taste with fruity notes. Very mild and smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dryish roasty resiny aftertaste with wooden notes. Very low on taste, but not bad. Perhaps a little too sweet and not sufficiently bitter. (0.25l cask, The Blue Blazer, Edinburgh.)
