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!!!

fiulijn (15360) - 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.

deep black, burnt malt nose, again the flavour has just a bit too much burntness for me
