bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2004
Light red/orange coloured body with a large tan head. The aroma was of predominantly spices and then fruit. Taste was spice once again noticeably ginger and then some smoke, alcohol was well hidden and it was easy to drink. Beware!

Moderate-dark wood color. Moderate-low amount of carbonation. Light, fizzy head. Aroma is delicate, a little yeasty. Spices and nuts. A small bit of bitterness. Alcohol is not at all apparent.

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2004
Bottled. Ruby colour, lively head. Funky grapefruit mingle with toffee and yeast in the nose. The sweetness is balanced by a rich, but not overly heavy maltiness. There are notes of honey, oak and caramel. The finish is mild with just some grassy bitterness. A malt accented and discretely complex beer. Very pleasant, but not fantastic.

jde123 (763) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 20, 2004
pours a dark umber...great! Thick foamy head, light tan that settles slowly leaving nice lace on the glass. The aroma has a bite to it, very complex, kind of like cinnamon. Taste is equally complex with bold accents of hops. There is a chocolate flavor, a yeasty aftertaste. Moutfeel slightly oily, not the greatest Overall this is a very drinkable beer.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Chocolate malt aroma with a big phenolic aroma coming through. Big phenolic flavors with some chocolate malt taste also. This was a decent Belgian brown ale but not as good as some others I have had.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Smells of chocolate. Chocolate/earthy/malty flavor, bitter finish. People, although its the Belgian version of a scotch ale, its a belgian ale through and through.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
750ml capped bottle, cloudy hazy reddish-copper color, nice big foamy off white-tan head that leaves good lacing in the glass, yeasty, fruity and spicy aroma. Bready malty fruity flavors, full and crisp palate, yeasty banana sweet sugary finish, good stuff.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2004
This is another beer in this sight that is mis-labeled. This is not a Scottish Ale., but anyway... This one pours a very nice dark brown color, with a big puffy tan head. Once it is poured you will see why this one gets tons of appearance points. It also has a very sweet chocolately aroma. Although it has basic flavors, it is still quite easy to drink, with lots of chocolate and cocoa in the flavor. Light to medium bodied in the mouthfeel with some nice dry roasted flavors in the finish.
