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.

Clear deep red brown appearance with medium head. Nutty, malty, roasted barley with caramel aroma. A bit too sweet with nicely bitter finish. Good Scotch Ale.

Du bonbon pour les yeux, une belle couleur acajou surmontée d’un beau collet brunâtre nous fait saliver dès le premier regard. Je fus surpris de sentir des traces de bananes lorsque j’ai approché mon pif du verre, fort probablement la levure belge qui déjoue notre perception de ce que doit être une scotch ale. En bouche, l’érable, le toffee et la vanille nous replacent sur le droit chemin, mais c’est malheureusement beaucoup trop sucré à mon goût, ce qui crée un certain déséquilibre. Le concept d’une scotch ale à la belge est certes peu orthodoxe, mais n’hésitez pas à l’essayer si vous en avez la chance pour goûter à une interprétation différente du style.

Pours muddy amber with very little head. Distant aroma of brown sugar and some dark fruits maybe? Taste is sweet sugary little boozy. Dark fruits are nowhere to be found anymore. Medium bodied mouthfeel with a nice carbonation tingle. Had this one before but was not as good as I remembered. Just okay I guess.

JustDrinkIt (258) - Arizona, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Deep brown pour with quickly diminishing head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with spice. Flavor is more caramel and spice, notes of vanilla.

Lore (1031) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 20, 2013
mahogany colour, huge light brwonish head; aroma of roasted sugar/malt, some yeast, wood, and hints of dried fruits; taste is dominated by brown sugar and roasted maltyness with some wood and yeast again; for me, it’s more like a belgian strong ale than a scotch ale; anyway, really good

Lagerboy (1211) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
33 cl bottle. Opaque orange brown, foamy tan head settles and lingers. Sweet malty boozy fruity aroma. Sweet toasted caramel malt taste, fruity and syrupy, some underlying yeast funk. Soft carbonation, light-medium body, low hopped. Sours a bit as it warms. A little boozy and cloying towards a warm finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bottle. Smell is very subtle in the bottle, much more pronounced in the glass. Pours thick with just a little head. Dark amber almost light brown. Can barely see light through it. Starts off bold (almost like a wine) but not bitter, with a light finish.
