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!!!

Gr0ve (2134) - 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.

Sigmund (5119) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2004
Cask at the Ipswich Beer Festival 2004, gravity dispense. Colour is black / dark ruby. Lovely aroma of dark fruits / prunes, English pipe tobacco, chocolate and coffee. Flavour is roast barley and oats on a surprisingly fruity background. Very drinkable. Fruity aftertaste - not what you expect from a stout, but nice! (And the beer is vegan - as if I cared!)

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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, very dark, even syrupy, with a bubbly beige head. A strong rich malty aroma with chocolate. A smooth palate with chocolate malt flavours and a rich finish. A good stout.

DanielBrown (3817) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2004
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...
