Murph06 (121) - Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2003
Very dark amber--almost black. Roasted, coffeish aroma and taste. Sweet dry finish. Alittle raisiny. Not a bad ale, but I didn't fall in love with it.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2003
Bottle: Pours dark dark amber/red, looks brown until you put it to a light. Medium foamy beige-brown head, short lasted though. Sweet malty aroma with hints of coffee/roasted grains in it. Nice malty flavour with a bitter aftertaste, hint of chocolate and roasted grains in there. Mouthfeel was smooth, could of been a bit more full though. Not worth the price IMO.

Hansen (6432) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 20, 2003
A strange impression. Some lactic-acid in the aroma incl. a little spice. The taste is different: smoked and rich. I don't know if I like it.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - APR 10, 2003
Has that characterisitc sweet taste but not cloyingly so. The alcohol was well masked and the feel was full bodied. An excellant scotish ale

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 12, 2003 Yes, this was quite good. Jenny was off on a trip and Mr Kelly was at an architecture conference, so I decided to indulge in drinking some of this beer. Beer is the genus of which "scottish ale" is the species.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 8, 2003
[Bottled] Brown colour with a good head. Nice curtains. Nice caramelly aroma with roasted notes. Full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Very malty flavour with notes of dark fruits.

Nesta13 (205) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2003
Interesting beer which probably isn't quite the sum of it's parts. Gets a touch sweet towards the end but would probably be better accompanying a steak pie or something similar. Worth a try for sure.

pilsnerrogge (2451) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2010 Dark amber / copper colour. Nice head. Malty toffee aroma. Creamy, sweet-ish toffee flavour. Full-bodied. Not much bitterness.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2003
Heavy brown-ruby color with an appetizing fruity nose. Dates, raisins, plums, acidity, earth, sweet malt. Nice smoky swallow that turned sweeter as it warmed. Sweet overall but didn’t get cloying. Pleasant all the way through.
