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!?

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
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. Itís full-bodied and semi-dry, pleasantly carbonated. Lasting roasted, caramel finish with a fine bitterness and some diacetyl notes. Except for the diacetyl itís a decent beer, but thereís nothing impressive going on. 150131

Oakes (15617) - 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 Iíve ever had in Scotland.
