A Scotch Ale? This is easily the best scotch ale I have ever had. The pour is brown with a tall bubbly, soapy head. The aroma is spicy and raisany. There is plenty of sparkling carbonation. Quite refreshing and very good at clearing the palate. No lingering aftertaste or film in my mouth like I have experienced with cheaper scotch ales I have had before. This was delicious.

Spiritus malr aroma. Dark brown colour with good head. Sweet malt flavour with long feel. Smooth palate.

Hansen (6224) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2004
Not as great as Chouffe N’ice, but still a real good ale,..why is it grouped as "A scotch ale"?? Dark and sweet, not as many aromas as expected, but still good.

vanvenlo (1153) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2004
8 May 2004 - LIght complex fruit malt, herbaceous, with some chocolate notes. Soap suds lacing, medium light brown head and a cloudy dark colour. Sweet hoppy long taste with a nice bitter balance. Sparling earthy aftertaste.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Bottle: reddish brown, little head. malty, nutty with a nice medium body. Really dry finish. Actually a bit boring. Some maple notes as it gets warm.

Now this is a Chouffe I can enjoy. A great overall beer that I haven’t had in a while, but I remember loving it. I recently got a bottle from a bud for my b-day, so I must rerate.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Appearance: dark red/amber color, a nice full rocky, tan head--lively and effervescent. Good head retention and a resilient lace. Aroma: spicy, cloves, and alcohol. The taste is complex: creamy and somewhat sweet, but not overpowering. The taste seems to change and develop more character in the middle and toward the finish. Very drinkable beer.

OKBeer (1168) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2004
750 ml bottle. Russet brown colour with a thick, mostly lasting creamy and rocky head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with light caramel notes. Slight acidity, then toffee, brown sugar, alcohol, bread, yeast, and smoky flavours. Alcohol burn a little too apparent for my liking. Medium to full body, dry and lightly fizzy mouthfeel.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2004
This was decent. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. It was very alcoholic in flavor and the finish was very sweet. A nice beer, and I will have to try it again.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2004
Nice smell, filling taste, feel good on the tongue, not too dark in colour nor in taste, it is very good for meat and pultry. Altogether very drinkable
