Coffee and chocolate notes. Actually drinks more like a cold coffee than a beer. A bit of a novelty at first, but not enough there for me to drink it all night. I did taste their Highland Games Ale and that seemed much more robust throughout. Very smoky Porter with excellent body.

Aroma is coffee, coffee, coffee. Dark brown with a thumb thick tan head. Fore is coffee, middle...chocolate and coffee and the finish is esspresso and more coffee. This is the coffiest coffee beer you will ever have. It’s so one dimensional they should serve it poured flat onto a plate and not in a 3D pint.

Still if you like coffee it’s very hard not to enjoy drinking this. It seems thinnish because all that coffee invokes thick stouts laced with coffee, but it is a Brown Ale so it’s really about right for the style. I like coffee flavors so it was tasty to me though terribly simple.

Draft at Dunedin.

Poured clear brown color with an average fizy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark chocolate and roasted coffee aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth texture. Medium to heavy roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

This is the best of the sampled brews.
