COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Previously 4.8%
Traditional Scottish stout with a creamy, toasted oatmeal flavour. Lightly hopped with a complex roast malt aroma and a smooth silky aftertaste. As dark, mysterious & interesting as the glen it’s named after. Arguably better than the best Guiness!!!

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars’ Scottish beer festival, Bristol 02/09/09. Near black with a slight tan head. Roasted malt and caramel aroma. Flavour had more roastiness, some milky oats and a light sourness. A bit thin for a stout but drinkable enough.

Rune (8500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2008
Cask, half by air compressor dispense. Light brownish head over a very dark coloured body. Plain dark malty aroma. Flavour has got roasted grain and oatmeal up front, followed by hints of liquorice and flashes of dark fruits. Ends with bitter coffee notes. A little watery in the mouth. After this one we finished our drinking session at the fantastic Bow Bar with the delicious BrewDog Punk IPA, which has not got a separate cask entry [Edinburgh 13.11.2008].

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2008
<i>Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London, 4.5% ABV</i>
The color is almost black. Mild aroma of roasted malt and cardboard. Soft mouthfeel &#40;also because of the lack of carbonation&#41;, some roasted malt and chocolate flavor, not aggressive, with a hint of liquorice, yeast and cardboard. Not bad.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Beer. Very dark brown. Delightful aroma: leathery, dark and old. I just sat there sniffing it for ages. People began talking. Taste is sour and ashy. Mid bitter finish. Very good.

Cask at The Hop Pole pubs Easter Beer Festival, Aylesbury in the company of Loz, Chris O, Ruth, Barry, Lynn 21-03-08 Good roasted smooth toasty bitterness to this. Pours black with tiny tan head smooth and easy drinking, bit earthy and some bitter chocolate. Good beer that could just have done with a little bit more going on to elevate it into very good beer territory.
