I enjoyed my first pint of this in a great wee pub in Edinburgh called the Dagda Bar. A dark ruby pint with a nice thick head that showed good retention throughout the pint. The nose was sweet malts and fruit with a slight hint of roastiness added. The taste was a typical 80/~ malty and fruity with a nice sweet aftertaste. A nice heavy body finished off a very nice beer. Nice enough for me to order another.

From tap at Stockbridge Tap. Pours clear and golden deep amber to brown with a creamy and tan head. Mild roasted and maty aroma. Flavour too is mild roasted and mild malty with a smooth towards breadish roasted note. Mild spiced and malty roasted finish. Nice one.
