Very dark reddy-brown beer with a beige head. A roasted malt/coffee aroma. Sharp on the tongue, there’s chocolate in the flavour but dominant is the same malt and coffee mix as in the flavour. It’d got a mild finish which is a mix of the flavours with a lasting toasty, coffee taste on the tongue.
Bottle at a tasting. Fruity, full bodied, moderate carbonation. Caramelly. Drinkable. Good one. MisoW (3547) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2017

Bottle from Luvians in St. Andrews. Chocolate and sweet malt dominate, making this a pleasant, slightly sweet cross between a Bitter, a Brown Ale, and a Scotch Ale.

500ml bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop, Kilmahog. Pours deep hazed brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is soft caramel malts. Taste continues with some darker leafier woody moments nestled amongst some comforting smoke and soft treacle. Enjoyable scotch ale. uckelman (790) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Pours black, no head. Swirl of oily film. Aroma is strongly cocoa. Medium body. Not a ton of flavor for a beer this dark---mostly just roasted malt notes. Evilkniamhel (941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2016

Dark amber - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and mildly crisp. Fluffy malts, mildly sweet, traces of caramel and coffee. Floral bitterness with a touch of citrus underneath. Dry finish. A tad dry, but clean and pleasant enough.
On cask at the brewpub.
Pours very dark red-brown but not opaque. Light tan head is bubbly and has good retention for a cask ale.
Feel; thin and a bit oddly grainy. I took a sip of a different beer in comparison and it did indeed contrast.
Aroma: mild but attractive and fairly complex. Leans more to dark fruit than usual for style, and has minimal smoke.
Flavor: given the aroma, there’s a surprisingly amount of earthy hops and some peat. Mildly bitter, especially in the mid-taste and aftertaste.
