Pours murky brown with a tan head that recedes quickly. Huge aroma of spices, yeast, plum, toffee, and brown sugar. Pretty intense flavor, as well. Matches the aroma, for the most part, though it is a little sweeter than the aroma suggested. Some phenols toward the end. Very good woody aftertaste.

bb (6861) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Bottle. Brownish beer with a reddish tint and nice creamy beige head. Spicey yeast aroma with sweet malt backing. Spice and banana flavor with some earthiness and malt. Finishes dry with a slight alcohol warming. A little plum fruitiness.

thebeertourist (4893) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2005
Dark brown with a moderate, though lasting tan head. Nose is yeasty and complex. Sweet fruit flavours develops into a dry finish with roasted notes. Mouthfeel is soft like velvet, medium body. Overall, a nicely balanced beer that should not upset anyone.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2005
750ml. bottle. Surprised I’ve never rated this, having had it many times. Clear brown color with a large frothy tan head. Spicy, yeasty aroma with just a hint of raisins. Starts off mildly sweet before turning drier and bitter on the finish. Spicy bread-like flavor with a touch of toffee.

mephisto (1269) - TAIWAN - AUG 31, 2005
my style of beer, though not the best of its kind. amber w/ a huge head. fruity, caramelly aroma. rather sweet, though there is enough complexity to justify it. malty and decent, but missing something.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2005
Ah at last i try this fellow, seen it so many times. This is the type of beer im always looking for, complex, malty, infinate flavour. Ah need to get another. also alcohol well hidden.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Decadantly frothy, creamy tan head rests lovingly atop a ruby tinged bold brown body. Toffee sweet malt almost overpowers but then brown sugar drew me in and introduced me to some nice yeastiness. Perhaps some raisin and caramel flavours but mostly just a mildly spicy warming body. Mouth-coating sweetness is cut lightly in the end. Very nice.

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2005
Amber, creamcolored head. Malty vanilla aroma with some nutty notes. Vanilla in flavor as well, floral and with some fruit. Mild finish.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Spicy aroma with brown sugar notes. Brown with head that faded fast. Grassy, yeasty and ample spice. No real smokiness for a scoth ale. Comes across as a less gassy version of a belgian strong ale with less spice and sweetness. Different and fun to drink.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2005
Dark brown colour, with a thick creamy, sparkling white head. Yeasty, woody nose with small hints of dark fruits. Sweet, smooth flavour with notes of chocolate. Thick mouthfeel.
