COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the big, hearty ’red wine’ of our range. Nine malts are blended to produce layers of caramel, coffee, liquorice, chocolate and roasty flavours and these are balanced by a tart, raisiny fruitiness that gradually gives way to a lingering dry finish. Rich, full bodied. warming and moreish. Stonecutter pairs well with venison, roast beef or lamb, or the heartiest casseroles and stews. For dessert try with a creme brulee or, of course, Scottish shortbread.

metalspice (942) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - APR 17, 2017
mørk mahogni i fargen med fint skum. Karamell, vanilje noe røykt torv og lett tobakk preger både lukt og smak. Silkemykt

yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2017
Bottle, at Duggfrisk. A dense, pale beige head forms over an unclear brown body. The aroma has lots of sweetish toffee, with dirt and some chocolate and coffee. It’s full-bodied and quite sweet on the palate, smoothly carbonated, and with toffee and dark sugary sweetness dominating. Some chocolate and coffee chiming in, and there’s a good bitterness as well. Lasting sweet, malty finish. A really pleasant scotch. 160820

thejackpacker (421) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from beer hawk. It is a red wine of a beer, deeply flavourful and sour. Spicy on the palate. I find it an uncomfortable half way house though of sour and barrel aged. Aroma is very much like port (wine, raisin, molasses). Nice but wouldn’t get again; no doubt exemplary for its style.

Mister_Li (1342) - GERMANY - APR 12, 2017
Leicht trübes, rötliches Bernstein mit relativ wenig Schaum. Malzig, etwas Karamell, dezent rauchig, nussig, leicht fruchtig, Rumtopf.

berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2017
330ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A copper coloured pour with a thin cream head; boozy aroma with some sweet grains; sweet caramel and barley sugar taste; and a slightly drier finish with some warmth. Seems more like an old-fashioned barley wine to me.

josanguapo (1626) - SPAIN - MAR 22, 2017
From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 5x09. Some caramel, specially in nose, with a significant yet not excessive smokyness and a good dose of neutral hops in the finish.

4.2
sccp1910 (250) - BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2017 Aroma intenso do malte, com notas de chocolate. Sabor complexo, bem maltado e com notas de whisky. Cor avermelhada e espuma bege, densa e duradoura.

3.5
Dervock (1321) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle - pours brown with an off white head. Aroma is dried fruit, caramel toffee and a bit smokey. Taste is sweet toffee and dried fruit. Fizzy palate.
