Taste of caramel, toffee, some dried fruits, slight whisky, a little vanilla, a hint of yeast and subtle apple. Medium bodied and a slick texture. A bittersweet, toffee apple, spicy bitterness in the finish. A flavourful, scotch styled bitter with a tinge of whisky and toffee apple. A decent autumn beer.

Bottle at Gordon Highlander, Inverurie. Surprised I haven’t rated this until now! It pours hazy orange - amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is rich, malt-driven, earthy, wood, leather, cereal, toasty grain and brown bread. The taste is dry, bitter, wood, leather, dried berry, earthy, bit of spice, wood polish, dull caramel, tannin with a drying finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. Lacks the depth I would look for in this style. Enjoyable enough anyhow. chinchill (4938) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2016
33 cl bottle of Cuillin Beast purchased at the brewery store in Uig.
The clear copper body is topped by a weak, off-white head.
This has an exceptionally nice aroma with traces of vanilla, spices, soft ripe fruits and caramel.
The flavor follows but doesn’t have the balance or complexity of the aroma.
Smooth, full body with light carbonation and some alcohol warmth. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2016
bottle @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of earthy malt and apple. Clear, very dense ruby brown, creamy smooth deep tan head, lace bands. Taste is creamy malt with toffee, dark fruit, light apple, and a buzz on the tip of my tongue. Medium carbonation ushers in mild hops that keep things in check. Malt and toffee bring things to a creamy close. Big and complex, each ingredient flowing smoothly to the next. And light enough to be easy to drink. Recommended. djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle thanks to Phil. Pours a clear orange with small white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt and toffee. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, metallic finish, decent.

500ml bottle. Shelton product so likely stale. Brown pour, off-white head. ARoma is savory yeast, dark fruits, herbs, savory, some oxidation. Flavor is okay, heavy english yeast character, spicy herb type, some marmite, dry and toasty, caramel and fruits. Not bad but not great. nihtila (3603) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
