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.

Bottle 0,33L. Dark, ruby-brown clear colour with small light brown, creamy head. Strong aroma of dark coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. Fully, rich mouthfeel, bitter-sweet in the begining of the sip, than turns into moderate bitter with strong chocolate note. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and medium alcohol finish. Most caramely beer, I’ve ever had.

Drank with Masum in Kandinsky. Sweet beer. Indeed hints of scotch. Tastes a bit like a barrel aged beer. Nice!

Very nice and refreshing take on a Scotch ale. Love the wine-like vinous nature of this port barrel offering!

Deu (717) - Nantes, FRANCE - DEC 27, 2013
On tap. Pours muddy amber with very little head. Distant aroma of brown sugar and some dark fruits. Taste is sweet sugary little boozy. Medium bodied mouthfeel with a nice carbonation tingle. Not very clean. N

Tastes like the Belgian wheaty / floral twist on a Scotch Ale. Nice bitterness on the end but I found the slight perfume notes a bit too much for my liking. Definitely a style worth trying though.

obguthr (3933) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Molasses, treacle nose. Cloudy brown, medium yellow head. Sweet horehound flavor that fades to a wisp of buttery smoke. Toffee-like treacle note at midpalate. Distinctive and probably pairs well with shortbread or Philadelphia butter cake. Absolutely delicious.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy reddish color with a large off white head. Malty nose with a hint of dried fruit. Caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit flavor. Rather sweet from start to finish.

Moravius (539) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2013
Flasche (33 cl). - Dunkles Kastanienbraun. Im Antrunk schwere, karamellige Röstmalzsüße, perfekt ausbalanciert durch herb-fruchtige Säure. Noten von Rosinen, Kaffee und Sauerkirschkonfitüre, alles in harmonischer Eintracht. Herber, holzig-bitterer Abgang. Trotz schwerer Süße würzig, rund und süffig. Daß das Scotch nicht besonders stark gehopft ist, macht gar nichts mehr aus. - Großartiges Bier. Mein erstes belgisches Scotch Ale war gleich ein Volltreffer.

I’ve very much enjoyed ’scotch’ for a long time. I was first introduced to it by Michael Jackson in his TV series, when he asks for a ’scotch at the end of a meal. Like a good Scottish ale with a Belgian twist, complimenting both but sitting as neither in the absolute. This a beautiful rich full flavoured beer, perhaps a little sweet for some, but perfect for others. Perfect to enjoy after a meal!

Ambrée foncée, pétillance faible, mousse tombe rapidement. Trop caramel, moyennement fruitée, un rien de réglisse. Mouais...
