A malty sweet and sour aroma for this one. Rusty red body, tan fizzy head. Funny the head as it disipated made a sound as if you just lit a firecracker. Glad the glass didn’t blow up. Medium bodied brew with some mild bitterness and medium sweet and sour flavor. Smooth on palate alcohol hardly noticable.

A good amount of carbonation, with a light floral after-taste. Dark red in color with particulates left in the glass bottom. Minimal aroma, but perhaps a slight floral scent.

Very average beer. Very thin with little malty taste. Aroma had a malty hint, but still quite plain. One time the Belgians should stick to their own style, and leave the Scotch Ales to the Scottish, lol. Not aweful, but too many other good Scoth Ales to waste time with this one.

On tap. Darkish brown with small tan head. Aroma is raison, malty, with fruit. Flavor is not as caramel as I expected from a scotch. More fuity. Good but nothing special.

11.2 oz bottle: This one opened with little evidence of carbonation, but poured with a fairly large head anyway. It died off rather quickly, however. It is a fairly opaqur brown color. The nose was nice, with notes of caramel, yestiness and fruits, although there was a slight hint of a peatiness. The taste has a bit of a roasty taste and dryness that wans’t expected. A bit of the peatiness in the taste also, as well a a bit of caramel and smokiness. Interesting...
