Poured a dark red with a thick, long lasting, off white head. Aroma is of plums and holiday spices. Flavors are also reminiscent of these with the addition of green apple, pear, and cherry. There is also a subtle earthy, herbal hop character present. A little dry for a scotch ale but it makes for a lighter, more warm weather brew.

Aroma is borderline offensive in my opinion, but then again that could be because of the new nasal-clearing tactic I picked up from wunderbier (sniffing the pits...hehe). Clear brown Flavor is better, though a bit thin, with nuts and sweet caramel...had no idea it has an 8.5 ABV...Dangerous! LOL

It had a dark brown body with a little tan head. The high ABV content was definitely noticeable, but did not ruin the beer.

Dark color with plenty of carbonation on top. Smells Belgian but not overwhelming. The taste is quite Belgian too but without being too present. Palate is quite sweet gazzy and neutral on stickiness as a Belgian. Overall regular but nothing else..

Afgelopen week gedronken, want het was toch net herfst. Heerlijk zacht donker bier, wat makkelijk weg drinkt.

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.

TPaliga (212) - Munster, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Pours brown with foamy offwhite head. Aroma is sweet malt and yeast. Taste is fruity, nutty, earthy, slight banana, and sugar. Nice warming finish.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Bouteille. Couleur brune -rougâtre, mousse abondante et persistente, traces beaucoup le verre. Arôme malté, caramel et torréfié légèrement, esters, levure. Goût bien sucré et malté, pain, levure épicée, réglisse, finale légère d’alcool. Corps moyen, effervescence moyenne (mais forte pour une scotch selon moi), mais d’une douceur captivante. J’étais surpris de voir style scotch ale sur ratebeer à prime abord, mais après y avoir goûté, c’est tout à fait ça.

Ahh malty aromas. Quite a distinct sharp hops bittering. Not as sticky mouthfeel as other raters had indicated, I found this to be quite clean with a lasting aftertaste. Nice and malty flavour (could have done with a thicker palate I guess). Decent helping of pepper and spice riding the alcohol backbone.
