Cask. Aroma grain with coffee notes lurking. Pours dark with creamy tan top and lasting lacing. Tastes toasted malts with chocolate coffee toffee elements discernible but only if you concentrate. Medium bodied with a soft finish. A modest stout named for a town that has a lot to be modest about.

ianwelby (1270) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Dark beer with a thin head and toasty coffee aroma. Flavour is an initial burnt toffee hit and its followed by coffee and malt. Finish is a touch watery but leaves a balancing sweetness.
