Bottle. Pours dark brown with red highlights and a very thin head. Both aroma and flavour are chocolate and caramel. A nice malty brew. stravale (3055) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - DEC 31, 2011

Dark caramel brown..thin white head..bit of lacing..Aroma of dark malts and a tiny hint of chocolate....Taste of dark caramel malts....some grassy hops...Palate - moderate carb...thin to medium body....some sweet malts...Finish is some malt...rapid...residual light mineraly bitterness.
Overall - Bit disappointed with this, rather plain - its OK but nothing more than that.

Cask-conditioned at the Abbotsford, Edinburgh 7/06/2011. Ruddy brown in colour with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of sweetish raisin fruit with a touch of nuttiness. Flavour of toffee, oranges and earthy malts with a moderately bitter finish. Good. DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle from The Wine Cellars. Ruby with coppery edges and a slim beige foam receding to the edges of the glass. Milky brewed coffee aroma with attractive roasted nut and orange notes. Gently roasted and coffee-accented with an undercurrent of blueberry-like fruiiness. Some dead leaves and liquorice in the finish. Slightly over carbonated, becoming flat. But a decent beer.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Re-rate. Great chocolate on the nose and taste this time - it cleans away just nicely with the piney hops. There is also more creaminess on the palate this time!
Rating from 03/07/11 5/3/5/3/11 = 2.7
Brown in appearance with a red hint. Green vegetable, earthy and nut notes on the front of a malt/caramel background. Nutty and earthy on the palate and quite drying on the end. Initially delicate weight, but creamy texture and persistent length. dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark copper with a bubbly head. Chocolate and malt on the nose. Nutty and sweet with an interesting fruity note. Smooth and drinkable with a subtle malty bitterness on the finish. Really flavourful, could drink lots of this. Blairgus (4530) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Hazy brown, thin tan head w/ some bubbles
slightly sweet (not sickeningly so) chocolate milk malt aroma
thin/med body and mildly fizzy
mild mil choc malt flavour with some hops to balance but they aren’t prominent, nor can i really place them. I just recognize that it isn’t overly malty.
carbonation makes the beer very crisp for a dark, malty ale
probably my favourite bottled Stewart’s beer.
