Gordon Scotch Ale was born in the limpid highlands among isolated lochs and haunting Scottish castles. This brown beer, reminiscent of a dark ruby, is full of contrast - both strong and smooth. Its creamy head is delectation for the palate. This unique nectar can also be discovered under the name of Douglas Scotch Ale. Has been renamed ’Finest Scotch’ in 2006.
Note: ABV at some point from 8.6% to 8%.

Davvero notevole, sicuramente la migliore ’’Gordon’’ assaggiata (le altre sono veramente qualcosa di disonorevole); ha aroma dolce e pieno, di frutta secca, sapore molto dolce però con una sua complessità e un buon calore alcolico che però non sopravanza mai sul resto. Alla spina al Blackwood di Napoli.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a nice dark brown, almost black. Aromas of chocolate, with hints of nut and smoke. Flavor is a nice creamy chocolate with a bittersweet aftertaste.

Lubiere (12958) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2008
A dark amber ale with a thin offwhite head. Apleasant caramel aroma, non-descript. In mouth, a peaty malt, oily mouthfeel, light licorice, not bad but not what I expected. Medium bodied. Bottle at De Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam, Nov. 2006, 3.90 Euro.

Ruby mahagony coloured, medium sized creamy pale beige head, fruity vinous nose. Light roasted malt, fruits and alcoholic with mild yeasty and toffee notes. Also notes of berries, sourish discreet alcoholic finish. Very good and pleasant beer.

Thanks to Abram for the taster of this beer--Poured from a bottle a deep ruby-bronze body with dark brown tones. Mild off-white swirling head. Nose of fruity sweet malts, plums, and brown sugar. Mild peat zest and a clean, Scotch finish. Good beer!
