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 - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Hazy ruby-brown colour with a moderate mocha coloured head. Lots of brown sugar in both aroma and flavour. Also some mild spice and fruit notes, and some booziness in the finish as it warms up. Some very subdued hop notes try to come through in the finish. A nice, warming beer that serves well as an after-dinner sipper.

Bottled @ Fynske Øldage: Dark brown coloured. Dusty. Fluffy beige head. Spices, malt, fruit and some herbal notes is characterizing this beer. Is quite buttery and sweet. Some acidity, alcohol and yeast is notable. Is medium bodied and has some dryness in the end.

Thanks Hogtown Harry. Dark brown, big frothy off-white head. Looks really good. Strong alcohol in otherwise mild aroma. First impression is metallic bottle like taste. Strong spicy malt taste - more Belgian than Scotch I would say. Lots of red grape skin as well. Medium mouthfeel, a little watery. Not bad, but no complexity, too strong, and an odd taste / combo - really didn’t like it the more I drank it. Oh well, worth a try!

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 31, 2005
330ml bottle. Malty, sweet aroma, full with yeast and fruit, featuring notes of brown sugar, raisin, orange zest, red apple, fig, bubblegum and moderately spicy hops. Rusty red-brown in color, quite opaque, with a lasting, ivory head and dense, intricate lacing. Flavor profile possesses a rather sharp yeast bite to start, along with some dark, dried fruits, becoming sweeter and maltier before the spicy, citric, lightly bitter, alcoholic and lengthy finish. Lingering mildly winey tones and a touch of cinnamon. Smooth, creamy palate and full body. Certainly has its merits.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Poured extremely murky dark copper-brown with a huge foamy light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, bready yeast, cloves and dark fruits, alcohol on warming. Taste is a touch metallic, and the alcohol asserts, but the caramel malt is appealing and the fruit and spice is there too. A little too syrupy and alcoholic to be a true scotch ale, but if’n you call it something else, it’s pretty nice. Would stand up to spicy food nicely.

Spicy and fruity aroma, some caramel. Great, longlasting head. The taste reveals that it’s belgian. It’s a little spicy and yeasty and some dark fruits too. Good beer, but I prefer scotch ales from... Scotland....

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2005
I liked this one, a bit sweet, but good overall, malty as hell! I usually hate that, but it complemented my TEX-MEX bowl quite well! Dark fruit, malty sweetness dominate. I couldn’t notice the alcohol much. Good overall

Stew41 (1907) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 11, 2005
Consumed 30 days post the used by date but I figured it wouldn’t be crucial. Quite light in colour for a scotch ale; murky light caramel brown. Varietal nose, heavy malts, raisened, but not over the top. Quite full bodied in the mouth. Malty nose fade a little in the back palate and some fizz takes over. Malts have a slightly hard, pongy note which detracts a little. Could be associated with the possible lackof freshness? Solid beer but not as impressive, IMHO, as the 83% rating suggests.

Caramel and dark fruits in the aroma. Clear, dark brown with nice tan head that lasts. Dark fruits, caramel and nutty flavours as well as a fairly alcoholic finish. Strong alcohol, full body. Rich. Bottle. Entered from notes.
