COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
A pleasant mahogany coloured best bitter, malt predominating, gives a satisfying fullness of flavour. A glass or two of "Nessie’s Monster Mash" is a must before seeking an audience with the monster. The legendary monster is a source of constant speculation and rumour as he watches from his lair deep in the dark and mysterious depths of majestic Loch Ness.

SilkTork (5926) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Pasteurised bottle (Tomintoul). Great name, shame about the beer. Grassy aroma from the co2. Brief malt flavour before the metallic notes come in and then proceed to slash my mouth to pieces until it tastes like jagged shards of tin covered in blood. Best before date is this month. Obviously at this extreme end of the shelf life this beer has completely packed in. [2.0]
Bottle (Cairngorm) BBE Jan 05. Big loose head. Caramel notes in aroma and flavour. Dark tones. Doesn't rock my boat.

ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear deep bronze-hued brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is the oh-so-conventional caramel and burnt sugar tones, with hints of vanilla and grains. Taste is sweet grainy caramel tones with some nuts, biscuits and vanilla. Slightly bitter finish with burnt sugar tones. Light body, soft to medium carbonation. Decent enough, but dull as expected.

Aurelius (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Session weight, generally smooth drinking. Good malting. I really enjoyed the aroma - some hints of vanilla over peat, lots of yeastiness. Moderate to slightly heavy bittering, roasty. Good bottle and label, dark woody beer with a nice thin ale head. Finishes with some assertiveness in the acidity department. The two prominent flaws that the beer had was its trailing acidity and the thinnish mouth, but I certainly wouldn’t turn down another.

visionthing (5602) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2013
50cl bottle from Meny Grønland. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma with some toasty notes, dried fruits, caramel and hints of hops. Medium sweet and malty with a mild bitterness in the finish. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Quite ok.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2006
Malty aroma, maybe roasted. Taste is similar, maybe a watered down wildcat with a hint of heather.
