[cask at the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh] As a style, I usually struggle with 80 shillings – which is a shame as it’s one of the definitive Scottish beer styles. Stewart’s is one of the best of the bunch as it doesn’t go overboard with the sweet caramel that can make other examples too cloying. Deep brown in appearance, with a slightly off-white head, there are aromas of sweet molasses and malt from the glass. Quite well-balanced flavours, some sweetness but as I said, thankfully not too much. Decent malt aftertaste as well [24022010]

Bright brick amber. Caramelly nose with diacetyl in there as well. Soft caramel character. This is a very mellow beer. Sweet finish. I can see where they’re going but it’s not my favourite.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Cask @ Bow Bar. Dark ruby-brown with a sparkler head. Aroma is rich berries and slight butter, like a berry crumble with a cookie crust. Soft palate. Very nice but surprisingly fruity. Great malt character. Long flavors. Bread crust, dark bread malts. Lots of dates and prunes. Sort of like a milder version of sticky toffee pudding.

KyotoLefty (8848) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
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.
