Bottled. Hazy copper colour, mid sized head. Roasty and fruity. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Mellow flavours of chocolate and a shiff of smoke licorice. Long balanced bitter finish. Rich and harmonious.

Bottle. An almost clear looking dark reddish brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light beige colored head. Some curtains. The aroma has diacetyl, dried fruits, some roasted malts and a chocolate touch. Caramel. Some faint notes of butterscotch in the flavor too, Quite hop bitter, with a piney hint in the back. It’s full-bodied and semi-dry, pleasantly carbonated. Lasting roasted, caramel finish with a fine bitterness and some diacetyl notes. Except for the diacetyl it’s a decent beer, but there’s nothing impressive going on. 150131

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Dark brown, rich burnt toffee aroma - quite appetizing. Fairly strong-tasting with complex dark malts, rich sugars, complex dark caramelized things like the top of creme brulee. One of the few Scottish Ales I’ve ever had in Scotland.

Theydon_Bois (11550) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask at Number 27, Inverness, 19/10/13. Mahogony brown with a good sized light beige head. Nose is dark fruits, spice, bready malt, fruit cake. Taste comprises fruit cake mix, dates, light spice, dates, raisens, toffee, yeasty notes - Belgian feel to them. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate with a fruity spicey tang in the finish. Decent stuff, I was thinking more a Belgian style wise!?

imdownthepub (11130) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’13. Dark brown with slight head. This proved to be rather tart and fruity with a background bitterness. Some chocolate perhaps but slightly disappointing.

pivnizub (9162) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle: Almost clear, deep ruby-amber coloured, presumably lively carbonation, causing a stable off-White foamy layer; Aroma of sweet raisins and caramel with a port-vinous touch, chocolate is detectable as well; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied, quite soft; drier lingering chocolatey and dark-malty finish. Nice brew...

Rune (8927) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
500ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Clear rosewood coloured body. Decent off-white head with good retention and solid lacing. Good looking, indeed. Slightly smoked malty nose, mid-sweet dark malts as well. Similar malt driven taste of roasted grainy malts, earth and ash. Medium bodied. A likable all-malty beer, a little unvaried perhaps (Tromsø 07.02.2015).
