Cask @ The Henglers Circus JDW. Very dark brown colour, reasonable head. Fruity biscuit malt aroma. Creamy toasted biscuit malt flavour. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Somewhere between a bitter & a stout.

Rune (13186) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2008
500ml bottle from a wine store. Vanilla coloured head, slowly diminishing over a golden brown body. Plain malty aroma. Gently warming profile of roasted malts with a few hoppy flashes to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied [Edinburgh, 25.10.2008].

yespr (46530) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber to hazzlenut brown with a slowly collapsing off-white head. Dry malty to breadish aroma with a light spice note coming through. Caramel malty flavoured with a dry breadish note. Mild roasted base flavour. Shows a light acidic roasted note towards the finish alongside a mild bitterness. Nice one.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2008
Dark red brown with a beige head. Spicy chocolate aroma. Taste has a milky smoothness and a hint of sourness with that chocolate still present. Not much bitterness. It’s like a chocolate milkshake, but the milk’s gone a bit off. That was my #100 Scottish rating.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle at fathers house. Aroma is sweet malty, one dimentional with some floural hops failing to balance. Taste is also sweet malty and typically scottish and usless. My notes say something about date, which makes me think it was out of date, but they are old notes and i cant quite remember.
