ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - SEP 20, 2013
On tap 25cl into proper tulip glass Appearance: Dark amber brown, hazy. Thick pillowy head with a coating of lacing. Very pretty. Aroma: a little on the weak side. Caramel, toffee, berries maybe? taste: dry with slightly btter notes. Platae: very nice long finish with medium body. Good strong testure. Overall: very enjoyable, but I was hoping for more after having la chouffe. It could have been the bar, so i would like to try frmo the bottle next time. Lacked a bit of taste and aroma. Sill very good.

I don’t review any more, I just cut and paste Pigfoot: Deep dark murky brown color, small, but simmering, tan head. Aroma: mollasses, nuts, butter, cream, dates, raisins, dark rum, all the rich flavors one can imagine. Thick, full, hot mouthfeel, full body, tingly hops. Super-charged with hops, the flavor keeps on coming, simmers and stews, with a long lasting, rich, satisfying finish! Takes the cake for all brown ales everywhere, past, present, future. Round, delicious, sensuous, and utterly lip smackin’!

Little hazy, red/brown colour liquid, small head which leaves nice lacing on the glass. Th aroma was very disappoiting, small hints of fruits and caramel. In taste very sweet, dark fruits, caramel and malt. Medium carbonation, medium body. I was very disappointed with this beer.

Looks great, smells nice, tastes pretty good and it’s balanced. Best of all it hits like a fucking hammer, hence the tick and short rate. :)

lethe (177) - New York, USA - APR 25, 2006
Light brown pour that reddens to the light. Nose is restrained a bit with a general sweetish malt/caramel scent. Palate is soft with a fair amount of carbonation. Flavor improves upon the nose with raisin, plum, caramel and a nice roast/smoke malt finish. Nicely marries Scotch ale flavors with Belgian drinkability. A standard bearer.

2004 Vintage. Served from bottle into a tulip. Pours a dark brown amber with a one finger off white head. It maintains decent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of bananas, alcohol, malt, and brown sugar. The flavor was of fruit, massive malt, and slight alcohol. It was medium on the palate with high carbonation. Overall, this beer was excellent. Couldn’t find a single thing wrong with it. It definitely aged very well if you can get ahold of an aged version you owe it to your taste buds to try it.

Im not sure if i’ve even tried a scotch ale before. but this beer seemed alot like a belgian strong or even an abbey Quad. pours a cloudy brown, with a large active head. aroma of bread, fruit and some sweet malts. taste is of sweet malts, ripend fruit and some other things i can put my finger on. from what i remember of last night it seemed very good and easy to drink. of course that might be because i had a few stronger beers before this one.

Très similaire avec sa soeur blonde.Il y a quelques différences subtiles au nez et en bouche, mais il son bien de la même famille cela ne fait aucun doute.

pleasant brown ale. Quite thin. Does not taste its strength. Mildly spiced.

More Belgian than Scotch... A bit too much hoppiness for my happiness. Nice strength sets up a firm and reasonably drinkable beer--a nice change of pace from the traditional tripel. But only on occasion.
