Fresh pine, resin aroma on opening bottle that was more fragrant than flowery. The hops really dominated on this one, pushing much of the maltiness to the side, as you'd expect with its mighty low ABV and unstout moniker. It poured a thick and dark, dark brown. The head left quick, though grudgingly, leaving some splendid lacing. Had some dried fruits in there too, raisins and dates. Plenty of bittering on the aftertaste. Refreshing. Minded me of driving back from Skye and stopping at the Cluanie Inn for a Sweetheart Stout.
I like beer. A lot. This site is all about the wee craft ales I like drinking. I like other things, too, and I might write about them sometimes, but for the main this blog is about Scotland's wonderful breweries, their wonderful beers and me.
