Thanks to CAPTRON for sharing. Pours a reddish brown. Medium tan head. Aroma is toffee with fruit and some mild earthy notes. Taste is watery toffee with more fruit and a mild hint of wood and some earthy/peaty notes. Mouthfeel is moderate with a decent carbonation bite to it. Finish seems like mild cocoa or caramel mixed with slight fruit and malts.

Old good Jock. Beautiful chestnut/copper colour with an OK head. Aroma of grapes, cherries and dark malts. Rich winey and fruity flavours. Very respectable Scottish ale.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Pours nicely from the bottle. Tastes like a tea sweetened with Sweet-N-Low. Not bad, but not as good as other Scottish offerings.

Bottled; Clear dark amber coloured. Huge off white lasting head. Sweet and malty aroma with a light cocoa note. Flaovur is light spicy, malty, sweet and has some vague hops notes. Is rather full in the mouthfeel. Is dry and light sweet in the end. Has a vague bitterness.

Dark copper in color, a little bit on the heavy side. Malty fruity nose. We can finally get it in Georgia no more late night runs to the Tennessee border

Wow. Thanks to the manager of The Old Toad for this one. I guess they found this one somewhere and called it "cellared" for 5 years. Im not complaining. Aroma: amazing, very complex, with notes of apricots, wine, sour grapes, cherry. Flavor: Lots of flavors here, speaks to being aged for 5 years, very complex, sweet malt, sugary fruit, smokey scotish ale. I was damn impressed.
