The aroma is a nice sweet barley balanced with wood notes, coming off a perfect beige head and black body. Flavour is a nice dry barley with just a hint of sweetness; wet finish. This is a fine sessionable Scottish ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle BB 05/2014, Maruhn. Expected some kind of backstory or oblique sales pitch about the penguins and their march, but they remain unexplained and fresh as the exotic ingredients in this unusual fresh stout. Light, almost thin mf, pleasant herbal and subdominant fruity hop character which turned out to might have been the coriander& orange zest, Witbier elements. Good malt balance between roast, faint chocolate + chalk = Nesquick. Subtle, almost unpresuming brew.
