2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(on bottle)This is a very meditative beer in all it´s aromas of black currants, balasamico and wooden cask; in all the fullness of barleys well malted, alcohols stinging....blah,blah. It IS a very good beer, but in the end it somehow turns out with no special mark. It flows trough and leaves a good vinorous sent, but I´ve seen lots of girls like this. They don´t have personality. Too bad, I really wanted it to be a treat; love the label.

Aromas is malty with plenty of peat apparent. Amber brown with ruby highlights and excellent clarity. Generous foamy, tan head that doesn’t quit. Excellent lace coats the glass. Dark fruit esters (figs, dates, raisins) and toasty malt flavour balanced by a pleasant earthiness with hints of peat, almonds and gentle touches of alcohol. Fleeting roasted malt character apparent before the long, sweet finish. Smooth medium-full body, lightly warming. Wonderfully complex, though I have to agree that it’s overly sweet for my taste. Very enjoyable all the same. Bottle. Thanks Rastacouere.

Douglas Scotch Ale pours a clear medium brown with light orange hints. In its own glass, it produces a big off-white head with nice belgian lacing, very foamy. Aroma is very malty. A gentle fruitiness (apples, dates) marry a marzipan and toasted cake profile. There’s more scotch character in mouth than most scotch ales as far as the smooth moderately low carbonated round body pairs with the smokey islay scotch alcohol flavors. Hints of roasted malt, caramel, licorice. Nice beer, very expressive once it hits the tongue, but perhaps a bit too sweet overall to be truly outstanding.

Dark amber color, disappearing head. Mild and sweet malty and grassy aroma with tones of brown sugar. Flavor is very nice and full. Malt, fruit, yeast, coffee and brown sugar. Nice roasted tone. A really good beer with an excellent balance between the sweetness and bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A vinuous aroma to this brown beer which has a reasonable head. The taste is very alcoholic with brandy notes. it is a very sweet beer and although it is tasty it is not moreish.

This one makes me think of other more typical Belgian styles like flanders red, or rodenbach. The beer has a very specific taste. Some nice sourness, also a bit burnt, but not too much. Also with a nice head. I tasted this one in Antwerpen centraal railway station. The scenery also added up to this one.
