The Cave, Glasgow (330ml, £2.80):
Mid to dark brown colour with a clear body and a bubbly, off-white head that also leaves some nice lacing.

Mild, hop filled aroma with a bit of caramel and a nice amount of spice too. There is a good mix of toffee and some light grapefruit backed up with citrus and an oak type aroma.

Fruit and spice along with some oak and caramel from the nose. Again some medium strength hops make an appearance along with some spice and grapefruit. There is a nice, wooden oak flavour towards the end.

Smooth with a tiny amount of grain that is barely noticeable. There is some spice and a good, oaked wood feek and a lot of depth to the mouthfeel.

Quite nice, a touch more oak filled and spicy than I would have like but the beer did not suffer for this. The beer was very smooth and highly drinkable despite the relatively high abv. and the strong taste. There was a good malt taste to the beer that complimented the initial early hop one beautifully and went down a treat; a strong but very enjoyable beer.
