It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.
Ingredients: Water, pale ale malt, caramel malt, aromatic malt, sugar, yeast, Kent hop, hallertau hop.

Maakun (586) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Deep magogany with small off-white head. Caramel, roasted malts, grapes, plums. Something almost minty and chemical, can’t really put my finger on it. Taste is quite sweet, almost sugary so, with light bitter in the finish. Medium bodied, quite strong alcohol presence. Hmmm, has some things I don’t like but overall not bad.

ronaldtheriot (1245) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Scotch Silly has a thin, fizzy, off-white head, and a milk-chocolate brown appearance, with rather large tan chunks suspended throughout. The aroma is of sweet, rich, pungent, brandywine, and dark bread. The flavor is equally rich, with even a strange or interesting citrus aspect in the back-taste. Bitterness is low, and sweetness is high. Mouthfeel is between medium and heavy, and Scotch Silly finishes not so dry and delicious. Booziness is not an issue with this beer. Just a great, great beer! RJT

Bottle. Poursdark amber with a medium white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, sweet. Taste: malt, caramel, dark fruits. Medium body and carbonation, rather sweet finish with a little warming alcohol. Very good and drinkable beer even for a fan of bitter beers like me.

beholder (58) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Appearance: clear red / brown with a medium sized off-white head that marks the glass nicely. Aroma: malty, bready, some coffee-like notes but very subtle. A lot of caramel, and I think I smell a small sour note, typical for some belgian ales. Also it has a delicate touch of dust, and maybe some roastiness, but again - they’re very subtle. Taste: very sweet. Toffee, caramel, a bit roastiness and a little bit fruity. A small, almost untraceable alcohol note in the background. Mild alcohol bitterness. Moutfeel: full bodied, soft carbonation. Overall: a very enjoyable beer, although it’s not my favourite style.

stevoj (2148) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Sweet dried fruit mixed with smoke, peat and a little wooden barrel taste. Pours cola crown with immediate abundant foamy head. Smooth despite the high ABV. A sipper, but very pleasant.

sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
Visual: Pours translucent cola brown, smallish dissipating head, thin ringed retention, lots of steady streams, the last few drops from the bottle are cloudy. Nose: caramel malts, molasses (5/10-pungency) Attack: intense caramel, creamy mouthfeel Mid-palate: sustained creaminess, caramel-(9/10)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malts, brown sugar, mild roast Finish: sustained sweetness, alcoholic hit + astringency, malty bittersweet heavy finish. Summary: The first half is full-bodied and decent. The latter half becomes overly sweet and leaves astringent bitterness similar to if you licked the peel of a pomelo fruit (Chinese grapefruit). It’s above average, but not breaking the 3/5 barrier.
