Cask conditioned at The Rose & Crown, Charlbury, Oxon. Amber with white head. There is a malty sweetness from the start here, toffee, fruity, only vaguely smoked to me. The hopping is light, maybe a touch of lime / lemon. Doesn’t really get going but okay.

Fra fat på Sheffield Tap 15 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Gyldenbrun. Nesten ikke skum. Heftig baconaroma. Smaken torv. Gjennomført. Uvariert.

Cask ale, half-pint, shared with Finn while waiting for a train at Sheffield Tap. Creamy white head to a hazy amber coloured body. Spotty lacing. Smoked smell with a touch of meat. Meat smoked taste offset by dark fruits. Malt-fruity endnotes, mid-sweet. Medium bodied. Pleasing to a certain extent (Sheffield 15.02.2016).

Cask at the Holyrood 9a. Pours copper, tastes a lot like sweet smoked sausage.

Tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) on the 7th February 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull opaque amber in colour with a thin white head. Strange toasted note of pine nuts in the long aroma. Thin but resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with roast malt and quince fruit in the mouth. There is a slight hop presence in the aftertaste but this fades fast. Smoked malt strong in the finish, redolent with teak oil notes giving a strong phenolic flavour at the end. An interesting Smoked Ale but might be too pungent for some. Recommended though.

On keg at Holyrood 9A. Appearance - a lovely amber to red. A decent thin lacy head. Nose - distinct but restrained Islay whisky note. Biscuits and toffee in the background. Taste - slightly overpowering smoking peat. Still toffee and sone sweetness in the background. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a finish that is interesting but that doesn’t completely refresh. Overall - needs more malt structure to take on the smoke.

McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Mahogany brown, clear body with evaporating off tan head. Five spice tart nose. Enveloping oven baked fruity initial taste. Colourful midrange with a welcoming malt burn and a fresh lemony linger. Emancipation of the dark malt rolled fruit tang without a major hop presence and matching coppery bitterness was surprising. Worth a sup.

JohnRMurdoch (4871) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask @ The Society Room JDW. Reddish brown colour, not much head. Fruity malt aroma. Sour caramel malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not good.

mr_h (5535) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask by handpump at Society Room, Glasgow - clear deep amber brown, bubbly off-white head, no detectable aroma, berry fruit and resin flavour, initial sweetness then sour aftertaste
