Bottle from Aldi. Clear but deep red-brown, with a decent head. Nose is rich malt, a little treacle, some metallic hoppiness. Taste is quite dry for an 80/-, so probably off dry, malty, bready, malt loaf. Rather creamy too. Dries out in the finish, and leaves a moderate bitterness. Very good. Next step is to do a head to head vs Crossborders Heavy. mR_fr0g (13657) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2017

Cask conditioned at Kay’s Bar, Edinburgh. Very dark brown with cream head. There was a tart, plummy fruitiness to this, really quite sweet in the malts. Quite heavy going. Just okay really. joe19612 (3101) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2017

6th July 2017, cask pint in Winstons Lounge, Edinburgh. Lovely, lovely beer, my sweet tooth really took to it. Deep brown body, the head a full beige crown of foam. As the name might suggest this is all about the malts, and there are plenty of them in this brew. Leaning towards the sweet malty molasses rather than the over roasted/burnt maltiness of some beers, this had caramel and toffee like aromas and flavours, but not ’over the top’ sweetness. anfractuosity (465) - - MAR 23, 2017
