3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear brown with a thin light beige head diminishing to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is toffee malt, dark fruit, spices, liquorice, dark chocolate, woody oak. (8/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Full bodied, low carbonation and slightly syrupy. (4/5)
I’m not usually a fan of the Scottish styles, especially wee heavies, but this is a decent Traditional Ale. It’s sweet, hovering on the edge of cloying, but there’s a depth and complexity of flavour that saves it from being boring. It’s not something I’d choose for a go-to, but it’s definitely worth trying. (14/20)
