Details: 25cl bottle
Tasting notes: Pours a hazy deep red color with a bubbled white head. Sweet full aroma of malt and caramel, some toffee notes, a touch of dark chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty, proceeds to a gentle bitterness with some roasted touches, quite a dry finish. Mouthfeel is quite thin but not disturbing, however the flavors would come out better if it was a bit fuller. Together with the long dry finish however does the thin mouthfeel make the beer very drinkable.
Conclusion: A decent good drinkable beer with a long lasting dry finish.

9/III/14 - 25cl bottle from Carrefour supermarket @ home - BB: 4/III/14 (2014-265)

Clear purple to red brown beer, small aery beige irregular head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, sugary, banana, bit metallic, grains, some chocolate. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of caramel, some chocolate, banana, little bitter, mocha. Aftertaste: mocha, caramel, some alcohol, little sour, sweet, sugary, more chocolate, banana, some bitter hoppy touch. Actually not as bad as I had feared!

Bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, France. This is a dark copper coloured beer with a sweet malty, red fruit and sugary flavour, chocolate notes and a sweet, slight nutty finish.

StueyD (1070) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
A dark, reddish-orange coloured beer with a thick off white head. A strangely light aroma, roasted malt, slightly yeasty, but nothing outstanding. Dry and medium bodied mouthfeel. A sour yeasty taste to start, then a slightly sweeter fruit flavour, bubblegum and floral. There is a hint of malt in the background. The finish is a bit lacking, slightly sour and yeasty.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2013
Very dark brown body with a nice holding fluffy head. Roasted malts, mostly sweet. Not to bad, but simple and nothing interesting.

EddyBeer1 (765) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2013
Brune ambrée foncée, effervescence légère, peu de mousse beige. Malts caramel vaguement rôtis, aqueuse, un rien fruitée, un rien réglissée. Bof, bof...

richlamb (8) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2013 does not count
A very pleasant drinking ale, with a fairly "generic" flavour, lacking the complex malt profile of a true scotch ale. The aroma vaguely malty, with something like a brett character (hard to tell after all the french cheese I’ve been eating). The flavour is nicely malty with a lingering bitterness (slight harshness) in the aftertaste. Combined with a medium body, this is very easy to drink, but I wouldn’t rave about it.

Grzesiek79 (2974) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Troche slabienkie i malo wyraziste piwo w stylu Scotch Ale. Piana ladna wysoka jak na Belgie przystalo. Kolor brazowawo bursztynowy. Zapach ulotny i w zasadzie zaden. W smaku lekko karmelizowane. Alkoholu jakby nie bylo.
