GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Bottle 2004. Pours thin and brown with high carbonation. Aroma with hints of sour fruit and spices. The taste reminds me of spiced fruits and tart sweet yams. The mouth feel reminds me of a sparkling italian wine with medium particles in suspension. This a unique and flavorful abbey that finishes just as spicey as it begins.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2005
Very dark brown to black, with a big white head which lasts very well. Aroma of chocolate and horseblanket. Smokey, sweet medicinal flavour.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2005
Muddy brown with floating chunks and a lively tan head. Caramel bread aroma. Earthy amd woody flavors with brown bread. Quite spritzy. Interesting interpretation. Few of the distinguishing characterestics of a scotch ale. Not bad though.

MiP (13774) - 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.

aroma of malt and the smell of white grapes. brownish ruby color with medium off white head. i dont detect any smoked ingredients. flavor is light bodied, watery, and malty with a grape flavor. decent but not for a scotch ale.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2006
33 cl bottle. Best by end of 2006. The beer pours to a hazy dark brown body with no head. The aroma is very earthy, nutty, yeasty, minerals, wood, and some sort of peat. The flavor is peaty, woody, nutty, earthy, minerals, and something strange. But, all in all it tastes decent. Strangely alluring.

SudsMcDuff (5934) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2006
what is this stuff, not a scottich,not a brown ale, not even an "abbey" ...its like a strange mix of them all, a big disappoint with this, after having la chouffe in amsterdam, this is a bastard, a good beer yes, but not near great. some wine like qualities, in taste and smell...has a nice puddle of head, in the chimay glass it had a nice boob puddle. If I hadn’t paid $12 for the bottle i would be alittle nicer to this beer, MAYBE on tap ONE day but, if u can find it on discount do it!
