Traditional Scottish stout with a creamy, toasted oatmeal flavour. Lightly hopped with a complex roast malt aroma and a smooth silky aftertaste. As dark, mysterious & interesting as the glen it’s named after. Arguably better than the best Guiness!!!

Cask at the Elephant and Castle W8, as Wild Oat Stout. Dark black colour, off white thick foam. Interesting one this, really not that bitter either malt or hops, soft roasty flavour, creamy, smooth. Hmm not a bad pint, not convinced of its moreishness but good for one for sure.

Cask at the white lady. Pours clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of coffee, coca cola. Taste is more coffee. Thin texture, bitter chocolate on the finish.

Cask by hand-pump at West Kirk, Ayr - opaque dark brown near black, thin tan head, sweet chocolate, malty aroma, negligiible lacing, chocolate, liquorice flavour, bit thin and watery

Poured a deep dark brown with a fluffy off white head. Aroma of coffee and roast malt. Medium body, quite smooth and lacking much bite.

Cask @ JDW Elgin [190313]
Black, ruby edges in glass, thin tan head
Aroma of sweet dark malts, plain chocolate, soft coffee, quite a lot of cocoa
Taste- Dark roased malt, dark sugars, odd hint of rubber, then the mouthfeel collapses in the middle, watery, bland, vegetal notes, hints of tcp, hints of dirt, poor flavour - an utter total mess
Palate - Far too thin for a stout, some smoothness initially but then a watery middle with no body. Finish is rapid and dull
Overall - The aroma was pretty good, but the taste was very poor and the body was watery. With rich ingredients as used make a stout, it should be a highlight beer from the brewery - but I have no idea how TSA could mess this up so badly. I’m not wasting my money on beer from this lousy brewery in the future......

[email protected], wolverhampton. Little aroma looked ok. The taste was a bit off maybe old barrel.

BeerViking (4989) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Gravity at the Kingston beer festival, black-brown with a fluffy beige head and aromas of roast malt, coffee, dark fruit and chocolate. Rich yet lightly tart and dry. Sweet smoky finish.

McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2012
A really bad pint. (Cask, Doctors) Instant coffee granule notes, no head even after demanding an eventual repour. Dark lifeless body. Oily totally uncarbonated mouthfeel. Dry slight roasted flakey finish, more sickly than anything. Really needing a re-rate. But it is what it is...

tombyars (1749) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2011
First tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in October 2002. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with mahogany highlights around the edges and a thick off white head. Dusty black malt present as burnt toast in the long aroma. Thin, oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex gives a fruit loaf flavour with roast grain, weak coffee and black treacle. Slight hint of dates and sultanas in the aftertaste which then gives way to peppery hops and a much drier note. Finish is rather tart with woody oak cask and liquorice notes. An excellent session stout and well recommended.

[cask at Café Royal, Edinburgh] Black pour with thick, cream-coloured head. Heavy grain aroma of malt and oats, and chocolate. Flavour of dark chocolate and leather, fruity malt in there. Decent mouthfeel, finishes well, slight touch of ash on the aftertaste [02122011]
