Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival 2009 ... copper ... smokey woody dry malt nose ...again woody malts ...some hop in background ...little bitter. imdownthepub (15425) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Dark amber with white head. Malty sweet beer with hints of toffee and fruit, blackberries, loganberries type of thing. Disappointing finish, not much in there, but an average sort of beer. RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 20, 2007
Cask, Alloa Beer Festival 07. Mid-chestnut with a thin off-white head. Nose is lively malt / hop balance with some medicine. Mouth is lively fruity, grassy hop and some maltiness to balance. Smooth, some fruity bitterness towards the back of the throat. Can’t help but thinking it’s a bit artificial. berkshirejohn (6690) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2007
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Copper with an off-white head; malty aroma; caramel malt and nutty flavours; dry finish. Rather boring in the tradition of a Scottish "heavy".

A Mes rate: Cask at The Gatehouse ’Sporks. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
Mid brown with a slim white head. Quite hoppy in the aroma with some underlying malt and caramel. Malts come to the fore in the mouth with more caramel and a pronounced nutty note. Quite sweet. Bitter hoppy finish. Dull but ok.
Thick 1-inch foam covers the clear light orange to brown gown. Immediately very fruity (figs and oranges among others) maltiness rapidly shows toffee-like foundations. Toasty, bready and sweet malt flavours all through. Well balanced and pleasant on the palate thanks to its restriction. Feels like a fresh and not too fat strawberry waffle. Fresh enough for the sweetness to be easily bearable. harrisoni (19425) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2007
Cask handpull at Oran-Mor, Glasgow. Very drinkable, decent dark malts, reasonably light in the malts though. Nice though, some choc/coffee. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2007
Cask conditoined @ South Western Arms, Soton. Chocolatey malts and liquorice flavours. Earthy hops complement the light roastiness, creamy feel but not too sweet. I think I would have enjoyed this a lot more without the smooth thick body, which some people probably like. TBone (18414) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2006
Copper brown color, good off-white creamy head. Slightly toasted butterscotch and mild hops in the nose. Chocolaty, roasted malty flavor - some in the aftertaste. Some sweetness there too. Solid example of Scottish style.
