puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2008
From a 750, of which I only managed to drink around 12oz. This beer was a bit of a disappointment, especially coming form Chouffe. Very chalky and dry, only a touch plumminess or complex malts. It seems the belgian yeast wreaked havoc on this one. Rather hard to drink.

Floback (523) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2008
750 ml bottle from Total Wine. Poured a dark, rawhide brown color and a massive head with decent staying power. Yeasty aroma. Flavors provide subtle caramel notes, soy sauce, generic yeast strain, and molasses in the finish. Medium/high carbonation and medium/full body. This is a Scotch Ale? Good, if forgettable.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Dark brown color with a medium head. Very malty aroma. Dark, sweet malt taste. Lots of nuttiness and some toasted husk flavor. This definitely seemed more like the description on the bottle (brown ale) than a Scotch Ale.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2008
This beer pours a dark, yet translucent copper colour with a little bit of noticeable sediment floating around- no problemo however. Plenty of carbonation- nice frothy whip cram like vanilla coloured head. Lacing is decent and is hesitant to disperse. Aroma is like of grapenuts and sort of alcoholy/grainy like notes. Soft toffee and cinnamon. Taste is very light, lighter then i expected in fact. Carmel apples, white chocolate, doughnuts and some roasted java.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Dark ruby brown with a very little white head. Strong caramel aroma with chocolate, coffee, toffee and candi sugar notes coming to mind. Strong chocolate and caramel taste with bready and grainy notes. Quite a potent taste! Long crisp lager finish..

DKthe13 (56) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2009
Belgian scotchish ale. Brown caramel taste with a lot of foam. You dont really taste the alcohol due to the brown sugary taste. Lot’s of spices and a probably one of the best Scotsch ales.

jameswolfe (159) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Meh pretty boring ale. Had at JKO and was pretty dissapointed. It does not have a perticularly strong aroma but it does have some nice malts and a non-existant finish.
