Cask at archebald simpson Aberdeen. Opaque black / dark red coloured pour with a dense light tan head. Aroma is subdued dark malts with some roast and choc. Flavour is composed of milk choc with dishwater and roast barley. Lingering smooth roast and pepper. Palate is milky with a slightly creamy body. Fairly crude.

From cask at The Ferry Inn, Stromness. Black. Pale brown very dense and persistent head. Good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark toffe. Similar taste. Round mothfeel. Balanced by moderate bitterness in aftertaste. High drinkability and served in perfect condition.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Cask, The Old Inn, Gairloch. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood for this dark ale, stout. There was nothing offensive about it, but nothing hoppy or wholesome or distinctive.it reminded me of a kit homebrewed stout I brewed a couple of years ago. I was very pleased with it, but then, It cost me 30p a bottle and was out of a tin. I think I’m not a dark ale fan, that’s the problem.

Arômes de malts, café, graines torréfiées. On distingue même une pointe de caramel. Plutôt décevante, corpulence trop faible.

[email protected] bough market: Licorice Coffee and roast malt palate. Decent but could be richer and fuller.

The_Osprey (9140) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Cask at the Southwark Tavern. Black with a small tan head, which doesn’t endure long. Smell is quite potent - roasted barley and smoke. Body is medium to light, carbonation is low, pretty smooth and not foamy. Taste is initially caramel coffee, moving to toffee, roasted barley, vegetable water and stewed banana, lightly bitter resin finish. This initially struck me as a very good beer but the overall impression from a pint is that the flavour is a little weak and the finish becomes a bit off-putting. Decent though.
