Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Dark, reddish ale with a fine, light brown head. Very full and sweetish with a lightly smoked touch and some bitterness in the palate. Fully balanced. A lovely wee one... 010404

scotty (1223) - SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2005
A long standing favourite. This is a big full flavoured beer, fairly dark in colour with a good firm head. The nose is malty and fruity,there is a complex palate dominated by sweetish malty notes, but with well balanced fruity hop flavours as well, has a long finish...all in all a VERY satisfying brew. All Broughton beers are excellent, well balanced and of a superb quality...if you haven’t tried them..go on treat yourself...NO! I don’t work for them, I just enjoy their beers.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 [Cask from Tennents Bar] malty nose with dark fruits and bread. full bodied , slightly smokey with a very sweet, heavy palate and a dry finish with a kick of alcohol. too sweet, difficult to finish a pint.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours ruby-brown with a thick tan head that fades quickly. Malty aroma, with ever so slight amounts of wood and/or peat smoke. Flavor is fairly malty up front but drier on the finish. More hop bitterness than other Scottish beers, but appropriate for the style. Well carbonated. Pretty smooth and enjoyable brew.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Bottle. Dark amber-red with small head. Sweet, raisins, toffee, slightly woody and lactic flavor. Medium body, initially quite fizzy.

4.3
JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2005
Nice looking dark amber colour with slim off-white head. Sweetish, smokey malt and caramel aroma. Malt, dark fruits, caramel and some late hops in the taste. Very smooth, full bodied, very nice.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2005
I’ll happily dance to this piper’s tune. This is a blockbuster old ale that would conceivably complement red meat and some cheeses. It’s a dark tan colour and poured with a modest head. Fantastic nose: treacle and spice notes. It’s full-bodied and complex. Treacle and toffee notes on the tongue, with some spice in a lingering finish. Plenty of malt. Has a port-like character that would make it a decent complement for food. A personal favourite. (Bottle)

Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2005
Bottle 500ml.Light brown in colour,small head,the taste of dead wine and eat me dates,very fruity and makes your ears go red.

duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2004
Bottle. Tastes quite scottish, sweet toffee and peaty malt flavours. Nutty, with a touch of berry fruit, a little sweet and slightly sticky, with a warming finish. Not many hops to note, its quite malty.

4.2
DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 15, 2004
This was really tasty and pleasant. The taste seems to consist mainly of (different kinds of?) malt and some yeast I should think...there was a taste I was unable to pinpoint but it tasted familiar, like a certain nut or fruit that eluded me... Overall, a very good beer, although probably not one I’d want all the time.
