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

Bottiglia da 33cl. Color ambrato molto scuro con riflessi prugna, si presenta con un buon cappello di schiuma fine color nocciola di buona persistenza. Al naso sentori di malto e frutta matura che si ripetono al palato.

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..

minihame2 (215) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2014
Murky dark brown colour and a faint reminiscent of a white yellowish head. Aroma not very strong, malts, some caramel and grassy notes. Taste fairly bitter and acidic. Texture is on the lighter side but the carbonation makes it better as it’s sharp at first and then softens towards the end. A bit mixed feelings about this one.

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

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.
