[6413-20140629] Cask and bottle. Toasted grains and malt aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown red body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and thick lacing. Rich toasted malt flavour has a sweet woody finish and aftertaste. Medium-full body. Lovely balance, very drinkable. (7/4+/8/4/16) 3.9

500ml bottle from the Scottish Real Ale Shop. Pours clear dark brown, no head. Aromas are light liquorice, light dark chocolate, cocoa powder in fact. Taste is sweet toffee. Thin body, short finish. Passable. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
2014-06-29. Crisp dark brown body with a nice creamy tan head and lace. Aroma is pleasant, lightly toasty malt, whispers of sugars, mild cocoa and chocolate. Flavour is similar, sweetish malt core. Light bitterness and very light roast lingers in the finish. Light herbal licorice like character in the bottle 6++ Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Tasty but a touch too mild. I ordered this both on cask and in the bottle by mistake! Interestingly the chilled bottle is actually more full flavoured - a function of the package or serving temperature I wonder? Cask and bottle at Lade Inn, Callander AshtonMcCobb (6581) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2014
On cask at the Lade Inn.
Appearance - opaque black with a nice head.
Nose - roast aromas with gentle chocolate and toffee.
Taste - creamy gentle chocolate and toffee.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - decent but Nose better than Taste. Imaena (2319) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - AUG 9, 2013
Scotland: Purchased form Real Ale shop on the way to Skye. This is a nice Mild ale with a it more punch than you usually see. gunnar (9085) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Cask at The Lade Inn, Callander. Pours clear very dark ruby with a small tanned head. Aroma of dark chocolate. Taste is smooth,with a light tarty fruity note, acidic even, probably not intended by the brewer, which ruins the experience for me.
