1FastSTi (3340) - 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.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2007
750ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen in Dec.05 and shared with CinnamonGirl and Finn at a New Year’s party in Tromsø last Saturday. Dark amber body with a fading head. Earthy, rather smoky aroma. Rounded taste of spicy sweetness and dark fruits supported by winelike notes towards the end (06.01.2007).

Bottle, 75cl. Dark brown colour with a tan head. Malty aroma with a sourish scent. Sweet malty flavour with notes of yeast & alcohol.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2007
Aroma: mm, soy, sourish... yummy, earthy, malt... rotting strawberries. Vaguely acrid... caramel, some hops.
Appearance: very deep red-brown,...beige head. Pretty nice... apetizing.
Flavour: candisugar, some fruity acidity, mushroomy, chervil, nutty aftertaste.
Palate: pretty good but simple. Slightly harsh.

puzzl (3252) - 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 (527) - 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 (4493) - 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..

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2009
[Bottle] Pours a cloudy brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is basically fruit snacks and other sweet dark fruits. Flavor is a bit artificial. All malt and not much else. A little bit of smokiness in there, but it is quite subtle. Fairly dry.
