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!!!

Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham as part of their organic beer weekend. Jet black, with a great looking sloppy and sticky beige head. Very creamy - like the coffee creams you used to get in Milk Tray. Light feeling, with a burnt oats flavour, which is fairly insistent. Reminds me of Angel Delight...

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2004
Cask conditioned @ Reading Beer Festival. Powerful chocolate roasty arom, malt and raisings. Slightly cloying body with some acidity and a touch thin. Promise of rich roasty pleasures disappears in the body but very drinkable.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2003
Gravity @ Medway Beer Fest. Pitch black with a ragged brown ring. Enormous coffee aroma. An absolute wow! there's a slap of leather in there and a bit of roasted beef. Wonderful. It's a shame the flavour doesn't live up to the promise of the aroma. It's decent enough - some dark chocolate and that chocolate again, but with big watery gaps and a rather timid finish. The body is thin and refreshing - perhaps too thin.

imdownthepub (10650) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Golden Ball, York. Dark black red beer with malty head. Dark roasted chocolate malts with long dry acidic aftertaste. A nicely rounded stout.

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2002
Had this cask-conditioned beer on draught in a Glasgow pub. It was absolutely amazing. It must be the freshest beer I’ve ever had. Dark, creamy, fresh roasted coffee, oats and licorice.

Sampled cask conditioned at GBBF.
Dark black. Coffee, oat and licorice aroma. Sweet and full bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Really roasty. Bitter finish.
