750ml bottle (Kuikka, Helsinki) - shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
If this is a scotch ale, I’m a dutchman. Deep orangy red, brief fizzy head. Winey grapey aroma, some apple and raisin. Fizzy palate, sweet and thin, almost watery. More yeast adds a bit of apple. Quite alcoholic for 8%. Sweet and a bit slushy.

imdownthepub (12688) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
Bottled, 750ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Dark amber to chestnut with white head. Some darker roasted malts lead the way in a relatively simple but pleasing beer. A little woodiness in the malt with just a touch of smokiness, there appears to be some Belgian yeasty spicing, quite possibly the effect of the yeast and a little greenish hop, but in general this is about the maltiness. The strength doesn’t really show through. Very nice.

bierkoning (11949) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Chouffe version: Malt and chocolate aroma. Sweetish, malty, whisky and chocolate flavor. Some alcohol. This beer is reasonably well hopped, but that is hidden by the velvety sweetness. Very likeable beer, tasty and powerful. 8 3 8 4 15 = 3.8 moortgat version, small bottle. Dark brown color. Chocotoff and butter in the aroma. Medium to full bodied. Alcoholic. malty sweet flavor with caramelly notes. Pleasant and very drinkable, but also flat and onedimensional. 7 3 7 3 12 = 3.2
