Inspired by a brew that originally came to light in 18th century Edinburgh, this beer tries to recreate an age old recipe! Today, it has become more of a porter, blessed with an aroma of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. On the palate, it twists a strong aniseed flavour with a short, citrus aftertaste. _x000D_
