Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2008
500ml bottle from a wine store. Vanilla coloured head, slowly diminishing over a golden brown body. Plain malty aroma. Gently warming profile of roasted malts with a few hoppy flashes to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied [Edinburgh, 25.10.2008].

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber to hazzlenut brown with a slowly collapsing off-white head. Dry malty to breadish aroma with a light spice note coming through. Caramel malty flavoured with a dry breadish note. Mild roasted base flavour. Shows a light acidic roasted note towards the finish alongside a mild bitterness. Nice one.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2008
Dark red brown with a beige head. Spicy chocolate aroma. Taste has a milky smoothness and a hint of sourness with that chocolate still present. Not much bitterness. It’s like a chocolate milkshake, but the milk’s gone a bit off. That was my #100 Scottish rating.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle at fathers house. Aroma is sweet malty, one dimentional with some floural hops failing to balance. Taste is also sweet malty and typically scottish and usless. My notes say something about date, which makes me think it was out of date, but they are old notes and i cant quite remember.

Deep brown, roast malt nose, smooth chocolate malt, little sweet but with slightly sour edged little toffee in linger.

scotty (1053) - SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle from Tesco. A good looking 80/-, nice deep colour and a good white head that clings to the side of the glass and leaves a delicate lace marking each sup. Typically malty in flavour with a subtle citrus fruit just noticable on the finish. A good example of an 80 bob, better than many of the bigger names, and well worth a bash.
