William Bros started off as a home brew shop in Glasgow and were ticking along quite happily until 1988 when one day a lady wandered in with a recipe. The recipe was in Gaelic for leann fraoch (heather ale) and had been handed down through the generations, but she didn't know how to brew it.  The two got together and after a period of experimentation the first William Bros beer was born!

  1. A very good stout. Review by JP
    Rating

    Nice dark colour, good flavour. All around good stout. Nice notes of chocolate and coffee, not sure if the liquorice was there, but in my opinion that is a good thing. (Posted on 19/03/2017)

  2. Take my money Review by Snozz
    Rating

    Pours black. Lacing of dark tan head. Lots of cocoa aroma. Smells almost like a chocolate orange. There’s a lot of malt there. Medium body. Mineral finish. (Posted on 16/02/2017)

  4. Lovely beer Review by MH
    Rating

    Very dark brown with no head. Smells like bitter chocolate, orange, and coffee. Strong coffee roasted coffee notes, with a sweet cane sugar finish. Medium to light bodied. (Posted on 17/01/2017)

    An excellently smooth and creamy stout with just the right amount of depth to make a session out of them without it becoming overpowering. (Posted on 09/01/2017)

    Not the best Stout I've had, but drinkable and has enough flavours to keep you drinking. (Posted on 18/11/2016)

  10. A good beer Review by Paul
    Rating

    Creamy, coffee and dark chocolate, well balanced, not a powerful stout and easy to drink (Posted on 11/10/2016)

  11. Nice but ordinary Review by Ed
    Rating

    This is a very ordinary stout - no better than guinness, didn't get any creaminess as billed (more like Guinness original) - there are much better stouts out there (Posted on 01/09/2016)

    Coffee and chocolate aroma, not much flavour to it but still had a nice smooth, creamy mouthfeel. (Posted on 29/06/2016)

  14. Pick up this penguin Review by Good head
    Rating

    Really creamy and smooth. Black in colour with a slight head. Very easy drinking with a silky feel and typically stout type flavours of coffee and chocolate. (Posted on 25/06/2016)

  15. Penguins like fish! Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    "Penguins like fish!" is what my penguin-obsessed two year old likes to shout at me.
    This beer tastes neither of penguin (I assume, I've never eaten one) or fish, which is a welcome relief.
    It's a rather mild stout (if you know what I mean) - it's quite light in body with a gentle chocolate and coffee flavour. A session stout, if you will. (Posted on 31/05/2016)

  16. Light but complex Review by Geofff
    Rating

    Subtly balanced and light, kinda a strong coffee mild vibe going on here ... one of Williams Bros' standouts (Posted on 12/04/2016)

  17. Above average Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    A pretty decent stout. Smooth and creamy with hints of chocolate and roasted malt, but I felt the flavour was lacking a little. (Posted on 20/03/2016)

  18. Creamy Stouty Goodness Review by berkfromtrapdoor
    Rating

    If you want a session creamy stout with chocolatey flavours, then this is the one for you. Nothing unusual or 'quirky', but why go exotic, when you can get the basics this good? Settle yourself down with the Godfather Trilogy and drink the night away with ease! (Posted on 06/03/2016)

  19. Good name good beer Review by Ninja Terrier
    Rating

    I brought this because of the name and my increasing liking of stouts. I was not dissapointed. It delivers all you would expect from a good stout Chocolate, Coffee and Liquorice and at a low ABV. (Posted on 04/03/2016)

  20. Creamy???? I don't think so! Review by Ed
    Rating

    Firstly, I'm not a big stout fan. However, I have drunk a lot of guinness draft which is definitely creamy, and have also drunk guinness original which is not. This to me tastes more or less exactly like guiness original. I;s OK but definitely NOT creamy, and really nothing special. (Posted on 25/02/2016)

  21. High standard stout. Review by S.Stanbridge

  24. No penguins were harmed to write this review Review by interzen
    Rating

    If you're looking for a brain-damage inducing Imperial then this isn't the drink for you. On the other hand, if you're after a flavourful, smooth and easy-drinking stout then this one will have you covered.

    Pours dark, as you'd expect, although what little head is formed doesn't really stick around too long. It's got the full gamut of roasted malts in the nose, too, with maybe the merest hint of hop. Not much, but some.

    Plenty of coffee, chocolate and malt flavours and a feel that's more porter than stout but even so, this one is a keeper and definitely a cut above a certain black and white Irish beverage.

    There's more to Scottish beer than Tennants - this is the proof. (Posted on 10/08/2015)

    Smooth and creamy but missing the penguin flavour (Posted on 20/06/2015)

  26. Good value Review by BitZimBobs

    Well brewed beer with great taste. Smooth, thick and creamy. Good value amongst the stouts. Notthe best stout there - certainly a good stout though, I'd order it again (Posted on 09/06/2015)

  30. Stout with the complexity of a porter Review by gatoruk
    Rating

    Really good offering from Williams Bros. A good stout but with warm chocolate undertones putting it out there with the porters. Not too heavy IBU is just right as is ABV (Posted on 27/02/2015)

  31. On the mark Review by AdyG
    Rating

    Although this stout doesn't hit the top notes like their Midnight Sun porter, this is still a welcome brew from Williams Bros. Complex coffee and chocolate flavours make this a good stout... (Posted on 12/01/2015)

  32. Great value Review by Miles
    Rating

    A very dark beer, even for a stout! The low carbonation made it very easy to drink. Coffee and chocolate flavours throughout. Admittedly, not an outstanding stout, however, at this price it represents brilliant value. (Posted on 02/01/2015)

  33. very easy to drink Review by bob
