3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On Cask at Barley’s Mini Real Ale Fest on 5/12/12. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of stale coffee, malt and caramel. Malt and coffee flavor with a touch of caramel. One dimensional, but dries out the Twisted Kilt a bit, which it definitely needs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask version at Barley’s 9th Annual Mini RAF (05/12/12): The beer is a slightly murky amber color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt. Light to medium body with a coffee-forward flavor and notes of earthy malt and mild hops in the background. The finish is mildly bitter with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
