Nose
Pleasant hop resins over deep, chocolatey malt.
Palate
Malty and raisin-like, with hints of toffee and chocolate. Smooth, tasty and not too sweet, with a light sappy character from the subdued hops.
Finish
Dry bitterness builds after a sweet swallow. Hops are more in evidence and malt is gradually pushed aside.
Comment
A good, flavoursome, dark golden beer that could easily have become cloying in the finish but didn't.

Nose
Roasted malt. Beef flavoured crisps. Burnt sugar.
Palate
Smooth and resinous.
Finish
Really dry and only gradually disappears.
Comment
Not my favourite, but a good example of the style. Good to see this Scottish restaurant bringing out its own range of beers.
