Black Gold (Cairngorm)

Name: Black Gold
Label: "Silver medal, winter beer of Scotland 2007/8 - Champion beer of Scotland 2005"
Brewery: Cairngorm
ABV: 4.4%

Rating: Not a bottled ale this time.  I went to a "pub" and bought some ale, we should be supporting the pubs. In this case it was a Wetherspoons - some people like to pronounce it Witherspoons for some reason. I have no idea why... Anyway, the ale - a Scottish stout with a wonderful rich dark colour. A smooth full bodied beer with subtle bitterness giving way to late sweetness and underlying roast barley hints.

Game: Some games are criminally underrated and some are criminally overrated. Yes it should definitely be a criminal offence to underrate or overrate games.  Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is definitely one of those underrated games. I've previously given it a 9 out of 10 and stand by the rating after finishing it. Buy it. Its great.
