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.

Rune (8705) - 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).

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 10, 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.

alexanderj (3349) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle; poured a dark brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast and spice. Caramel malt, then peat/roasted malt and hops on the finish. Hints of sweetness; occational alcohol warming, but alcohol well hidden. Palate was a little harsh at times and a little watery; didnt detract from the beer too much though. Not a favorite from a style that I normally like.

jcwattsrugger (11310) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2007
750ml bottle-thanks to Joe/jwc215 pours a diminishing tan head and brown color with amber tint. Aroma is sweet medium malt-caramel, bready, medium/dark fruit. Taste is first dry hops character, then sweet medium malt-caramel, bready, medium/dark fruit. Occasional. OK effervescence.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 30, 2007
Bottiglia da 75 cl comprata da Squillari; aroma abbastanza dolce e blando, simile a quello della Chouffe normale, sapore però più "scuro" cioccolato e pasta e fagioli. Corpo leggermente meno robusto. Buona comunque!!! Meglio ora che quando la produrrà Moortgat

puzzl (3254) - 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 (531) - 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 (4529) - 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.
