Bottle brought from Belgium by a colleague at work... Tasty beer - very mild on the scotch, which makes it easier to drink...

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig süß, fruchtig. Geschmack fruchtig, röstmalzig, dunkle Früchte.

Shared a 25 cl bottle from the local supermarket. It pours a brownish dark red colour with a thick and tan head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Flavour is sweet, bitter and sour at different times and at the same time. Nice!

Bouteille de 25cl @ Malcom’s Bières rouge-rubis-sombre au col épais et léger, au nez aromatique, amertume légère agrémentée d’effluves de réglisse. En bouche, rondeur moelleuse et sucrée. La réglisse arrive en final l’amertume est légère. Goût de caramel, court en bouche. Onctueuse et légère. Bref, passable, quoi

At De Lantaarn, Leuven. Poured a daaark red, almost blackish, with an off white head. Sweet malty nose, plums, creamy, sweet plum taste. Simple, kinda nice, but again, nothing too wild, nothing too special. Ok.

BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
This is a review of a brown 25cl bottle, best before 02 Oct 2008, drank on a cold and very wet Jan evening 2008, in Shropshire England. Poured into one of my Gordon’s thistle shaped glasses, well it is a Scotch Ale. It looks grand, a clear and deep ruby red body with a full light brown foaming head. The head soon however fell away. The aroma was of raisins and slightly burnt malty biscuits, very interesting. The flavours were interesting too, again raisins, but this time soaked in alcohol with plums (not a plumb weight), the malty biscuit smell is transfered into a sweeter burnt caramel taste. The beer is a little to carbonated for me and the alcohol tang fills the mouth in the aftertaste a little to much, otherwise it is fine. If the head had stayed and the beer wasn’t so ’fizzy’ I would have scored this really high. The alcohol doesn’t have enough body to work with, it isn’t watery but it just doesn’t sit right, good but not great.

Dark mahogany brown. Malt aroma, slightly metallic. Very rich, creamy malty flavour. Caramel sweetness. Alcohol balances the sweetness well.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2012
250ml. Pours chestnut with a low, fine, unbudging beige head. Attractive, mushy aroma; fig and muscovado-sprinkled dried fruits; a sweet, saline note like cooked mussel meat; bittering herbs (fenugreek), battered sausage (pronounced). It’s probably all sugar-derived. Flavour is slick and fruity with peppery alcohol, ground Indian seeds, dessicated coconut, figgy notes- rich, drinkable and sneakingly complex. Can feel the alcohol on the tongue but not in the flavour. A minor beauty. And something of a surprise. If it’s one of the most disgusting beers you’ve ever had, drink more beers. A world of disappointment awaits.

Nice colour, but that’s the only good thing about this beer. It’s sweetness is overwhelming. This is one of the most disgusting beers i ever had.
