MrJamesMcEwan (210) - SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
"A classic Scottish strong ale, dark and strongly flavoured". Dark ale, chocolate & caramel aroma, rich like a wine but not thick taste.

allmyvinyl (9808) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear copper with a decent head and lacing. Big malt aromas, touch of alcohol, almonds, apple. Not as sweet on the taste as I thought it might be, good balance of bitterness. Some more toffee and chocolate coming through. Creamy texture, and finishes quite clean and crisp. Very enjoyable.

(Bottle). The scent is slightly sour with aromas of caramel malt. The taste is sweet and malty with notes of alcohol.

ManVsBeer (8934) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle from Booths, Salford. Amber-red with a small bubbly head. Its strength is evident and feels much more than the 6.7% given its slightly spirit like aroma and taste, but like many old ales theres a clear sweetness about it too.

Brunrd l med lttare smutsvitt skum. Doft av kola, mrkt brnt socker. Samma terkommer i smaken tillsammans med viss fruktighet med dragning t plommon.

mike67 (1133) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2013
500 ml bottle, 1 year old. Pours light brown with short lived, small white head. Aroma is of sherry, caramel, chocolate and hint of hops. Body is medium and tangy. Caramel malt, herbal hops ripe cherries, pepper mint and wood fill the mouth. Finish is long, woody, peppery and dry. Very nice, complex brew.

Golden-brown colour. Aroma is mostly caramelly, with a subtle fruitiness. Its a fairly basic beer. Not a lot of complexity.
