ianwelby (1525) - - MAY 18, 2013
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.

thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
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.

3.6
minutemat (6063) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
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 (813) - 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.

3.2
Evilkniamhel (1039) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2016
From bottle. Pours clear, dark brown. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and molasses. Taste follows nose, bitter finish but overall a bit thin.

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.

3.3
chinchill (5319) - South Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2015
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.
