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.

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

Pours a dark brown body with a medium head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Nice malty taste with a finish of metal? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2007
Pours with a nice moderate tan, short-lived head. The color is a very deep brown, ruby-like, translucent but bright. The scent is definitely earthy, somewhat pungent but also very malty and sweet. Oh yeah, it tastes amazing. Very distinct, with a somewhat peaty scottish ale taste. lLots of malt, a bit of sweet and a nice rounding nutty complexity.There are just so many flavors its hard to list them all. Overall, a wonderful beer, the brasserie d’Achouffe continues to amaze me.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2009
750 ml bottle. Pours brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is caramely with some fruit. Medium bodied on the palate, but quite syrupy. Not a lot of flavor. Some yeasty notes and fruity, but a lot of cola. Nothing in this one that renders it different from a belgian as opposed to scotch ale. A good beer to be sure, but missing that peet.

My favorite beer! Laying it down for 9 months makes quite a difference. Flavor is unique among Belgian browns.
