50cl bottle, label as shown.
Pours a clear hazelnut brown with a medium-sized light beige head. Good retention, decent lacing.
Aroma of ripe plums, toffee and bready malt.
Medium-bodied bitter with a solid, smooth mouth feel. Very moderate carbonation. Velvety and comforting. :=)
Characterful flavour of caramel, roasted malt and some barnyard notes. Bitterness increases towards the finish. Moderately bitter, lingering after taste.
A smooth and satisfying bitter, more complex and rewarding than many. Down the hatch - next one, please! bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2004

Fine malty refreshment with insinuating notes of caramel, fig and malt loaf. Bready, a bit buttery and good. AshtonMcCobb (6601) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2012
50cl bottle from Glen Moray distillery shop. Pours a very dark amber with a nice head. The nose has fruit cake and hints of ginger. The taste has fruit loaf which turns into ginger bread in the finish. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a clean and quite bitter finish. Overall, a well made ale.
