A traditional Scottish ale brewed with an emphasis on the malt characteristics. Lightly hopped, as is true to this style of beer, with fruity malt aromas and a toffeeish mouth feel.

Dark brown pour with ruby highlights and a foamy khaki head. Malty raisin, caramel and toffee aroma with slight fruity notes in the background. Caramel buttery toffee flavor with hints of dark fruit. Bit of a buttery viscous mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Nice ... I prefer a bit more of the caramel/toffee and less of the raisin type malt flavors though.

Ganska mörk färg. Fint skum. Lite rostad, knäckig smak. Mild. Jag gillar den. Och lagom svag...

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle. Floral and citrus hop aroma, light toasted, nutty malt, notes of peat, fruit and tea. Complex and yet easy quaffable brew, maybe a tad watery but it gets more nutty and peaty as it warms. Interesting and tasty.

cacack (2) - Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2014 does not count
Week aroma, nothing much to note. Dark chestnut color, thin cream colored head. Very watery body. Balanced flavor, maybe leaning a little towards the malt side, with a slight roasted smoky aftertaste.

allmyvinyl (2175) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle at Mia Restaurant, Edinburgh. Clear chestnut brown pour, no real head to speak of. Malty toffee aromas, light hop background. More sweet malt on the taste, if a tad on the watery side. Decent version of the style.
