saxo (14385) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2005
A nice Belgian Scotch ale. Dark colour, with a large fluffy off white head atop. The nose was full of dark stone fruit, spice, and intrigue, the palette was lively and brought out the spicy side of things a bit more. A bit of caramel also going on I think.

harrisoni (14353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2005
75cl bottle from Belgium. Very red brown colour with beige thickish head. Lovely smell of rich malt and red berries. Some yeast and strong belgian ale aromas. Good in mouth. More rich malts and berries on the end. Lovely

Dedollewaitor (14207) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Hazy Amber with fine white head. Malty aroma and taste - nuts & dark fruits dominates. Sweetness. A bit "earthy". Little alcohol feel. Pleasant spicy hoppy finish. Good Belgium!

Travlr (14197) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2008
A nice spiced brown ale with some caramel and malt. Good balance, but needs a bit more complexity - perhaps a bit of ageing?

MiP (13913) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle. Malty aroma, but a bit like flat lager. Nice dark chestnut colour, big semi-stable head. Flavour is OK malty, but with a rather weak/watery aftertaste. Nice, soft carbonation.

TBone (13265) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 24, 2005
Bottled 0,75 ltr (BBE 2007)
Red-nut brown color, small steady beige head. Nose has alcohol, caramel, anise and light roasted malts. Liquerish, medium-bodied. Mouthfeel is a mix of carbonation (a bit too much, CO2 makes loud sound too :)) and alcohol. Flavor has yeast, sugar, malts, some fruits (raisins) and wood. Dry woody, slighly alcoholic aftertaste. Maybe not a pure "Scotch Ale", more like Belgium strong ale.

Oakes (13065) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2000
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Medium brown colour with a thick, billowy head. Aroma of yeast, wood, prunes, figs, toffee and bog myrtle. Spicy, yeasty tones overly a rich toffeeish, earthy maltiness. Sweet demerara and deglet noor finish. Sturdy alcoholic punch comes in late. Quality brew, and after 2 years in the cellar it emerges as a world classic.

Leighton (12639) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a semi-clear brown with a large, off-white head. Good fruits in the nose, along with lightly roasted malts, booze and caramel. Sweet flavor, with great toffee, caramel, ripe fruit and scotch. Medium bodied with average carbonation. More sweetness in the finish, along with faint bitter notes. Good stuff.
