Smooth all the way down. Slight bitter finish. AshtonMcCobb (7029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2012
On tap @ Ghillie Dhu. Pours dark amber to black with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has honey nut cornflakes. The taste has more of the same and a nutty note too. The palate is medium with a creamy structure and a reasonably elegant finish. Overall, the best Arran beer I’ve had. sic1314 (4773) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
Poured deep dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of heavy malt and dark fruit. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, well balanced and the gem in the Arran portfolio.

Pint at Clockwork in the South side of Glasgow. Quite a dark brown. Some head, but not much. ManVsBeer (11190) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Cask @ White Lion, Heptonstall. Slightly hazy brown with a thick creamy head. Has a roasted, almost burnt aroma with a mild nutty taste. Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Cask at Clockwork. It pours deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is brown bread, earth, nut, dried berry, toast and malt loaf. The taste is earth, brown bread, toast, dried fruit, berry, light caramel, fruity tartness and fruit cake with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A superior dark ale. Rather nice. TBone (18561) - 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.
Cask at GBBF 2010. Good amber brown colour with a good white head.
Plenty of fruit in the aroma, with a hint of orange. Malts dominate the initial taste and again the citrus and orange combination work well in the aftertaste. A very nice beer, ideal summer drink for a person that prefers a darker beer.
