Was hoping for more, but still a very great beer ... balance seemed to be a bit off between the several distict flavors ... but nice body and finish

Pour is a deep mahogany, thick tan head, good lacing. Aroma is malty, bready, some caramel, chocolate and smokiness in there, too. Flavor is quite sweet, caramel, chocolate, a little spicey,and a hint of the smokiness comes through. Medium body, fairly low carbonation.

A powerful worty beer that only reminds me of christmas. Sure this isn't sesonal? It's sweet and aromatic, goes well with greasy food, or just as sip-beer. Or just replace the desert with a bottle or two.

madsberg (9654) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2003
Bottled: Dark ruby coloured. Medium lasting head. Aroma is very malty and sweet. Notes of caramel/chocolate. Flavour as well very sweet. Smooth and pleasant chocolate taste. Has a bite of bitterness in the end.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2003 Very sweet nose that reminds me of butterscotch and toffee. This beer looks really great in the glass and has a long lasting head. The palate is malty sweet with a touch maple. The finish is long and sugary, which is correct for the style. I do suspect that this beer has been flash pasteurized, but it is not a huge detractor in the beers overall quality.

celogan (201) - Oroville, California, USA - MAR 4, 2003
I hated the Taste of this beer. Almost like drinking Mollasses Taffy. Too sweet and under carbonated. Had a nice appearance and head with a good mouth feel, but that's about it. I'll never get this one again, and it may have shyed me away from trying other Scotch Ales.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2003
Ruby color, creamy head. Nice malt aroma. Good body structure, pretty good malt, caramalt, very light roasted; not so common for commercial British bottles. Everything sustained by a pretty strong bitterness. Light pleasant fruity notes.

legion242 (2100) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Deep garnet colored; dense light khaki head; nose was good earthy malt. Excellent smoky moss. Nice alcohol presence. Good depth. Very slight tinniness at the back. Becomes slightly cloyingly sweet at the end. Didn't retain that awesome smokiness.

kwoeltje (2212) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2003
Deep cherry-wood color. Fair tan head. Nice malt aroma with hints of coffee. Rich malt flavor with hints of smokey peat. Warm finish with a bit of bitterness.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2003
This one pours a clear, dark reddish brown color with a medium sized, off-white head that lingers. The aroma is all malty sweetness. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is malty, with a hint of smokiness and caramel in the finish.
