A scottish 80/- as I have never tasted it before, intensive malt character from a number of malts, Ottis Pale, Chocolate, Amber, roasted barley and wheat. A mouthfull of maltiness with a slight hoppy aftertaste. Very Nice winterbeer!

Bottle at home from AleselA
Pours light chestnut with a toasted marshmallow head. Sultana and caramel dominate on the nose. Its pretty sweet but balanced by burnt toast malt and a touch of ashen coffee. A developing redcurrant and milk chocolate flavour lead to a long fruity finish. Certainly one of the better 80/- I’ve tried thus far.

Bottle. Again didn’t feel like a bitter. Aroma is lots of sweet roasty barley. Taste is very good, lots of malt again, like mugi cha. Treacle again. But light and refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Cask draft at Bainbridge Street Barrel House. Very dark chestnut brown pour with clotted white foam. Glossy black sour. Some acetic notes in the aroma. Well integrated flavors. Thinned peaty dark malts. Vegemite. Dried black raspberries. Charred driftwood. Sea salt. Vinyl. Cocoa beans. Blood pudding. Shoe polish. Definite balsamic tang. Mostly dry finish. Impressive Wee Heavy.

the aroma is caramel and fruity... the taste of caramel, dark fruits, coffee, toast with notes of citrus, chocolate, toffee and vanilla... dry and sweet aftertaste... looks like porter, a little bit...

cask in blue blazer ... nice copper deep red ... thin tan head ...soft sweet malty nutty toffee nose ... juicy sweet nutty malts ... soft rich bodyu ... a pretty decent if unexciting 80.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Bottle. Think I got my notes a bit mixed up on this one. It is brown with a friendly malty aroma. Maltiness dominates . Creamy head and a good example of this style.
