Bottle. Metallic bread and sweet toffee malt. This is a poor relation to the jacobite and house ales.

overtheline (64) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2015
This is a very well constructed beer, there really is not a lot to fault but at the same time there is not a lot to get excited about. Pours beautifully, deep copper red with a small off white head. Milk chocolate and light caramel nose, bit of fruit - pear and bananas. Surprisingly thin and watery. Short finish and moreish in a ’this should be better’ sort of way.

zimbo (753) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Cask recently at the Guilford Arms. Rich royal oak brown colour. Smells of nuts with a metallic edge. Vegetal too. Middle palate doesn’t release very much either. Old school.

BlackHaddock (4863) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
500ml bottle: BBE Aug 15, poured into a UK pint sleeve in Dec 14. Nice looking brew, deep amber and clear, the head a full off-white blanket of foam. Malty, peaty and woody in the nose and taste. Slight sourness within the flavours which takes the sweet edge off the maltiness nicely. Good, wholesome feel to this brew, body depth is fine and the whole beer has an uplifting warmth within it’s make up: very drinkable.

ianwelby (731) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Clear, reddish beer with a decent bubbly head. Sweet, spicy aroma. Flavour is richy, fruity and malty with a touch of toffee and a surprisingly gentle finish. There’s almost a wine-like quality to the aftertaste. Very drinkable.

Iznogud (1448) - CROATIA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle, 500 ml at the 1745 Cottage Restaurant at the Traquair Estate. Pours dark amber to brown with off-white head. Caramel, malty, spicy, herbal.

Honey aroma, a little moldy. Not tasty and nice. unpleasant sweetness. The hard-drinking
