COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark nut brown, small tanned head. Aroma has toffee, butterscotch, sourness, caramel - complex. Very sweet toffee flavor, like cream liquer. Short finish.

sloth (2535) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Medium sized light brown head, good retention and plenty of lace. Hazy amber/brown color. Big malty, bready nose. Medium body, fairly creamy. Large malt flavors, fruity, hint of roast and smoke. Finish is fairly sweet. Interesting brew.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Sparkling clear, ruby ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention with thick, cumulus lacework. The aroma is full of butterscotch, toffee and tons of fruit. The malty, fruity flavor is well-balanced. Full-bodied with a dry, crisp mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, semi-bitter, dry finish. Pulls up just short of being a world class brew. A must try!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Pours a muddy brown, which quickly consolidates into deep black, topped with a spotty, roasted tan head. Great and powerful aromatics: grapes at first, followed by cherries, toffee, butterscotch. Sweets and alcohol, the perfect combination! You get the feeling of a candy bar, melted down and boozed up! Huge, thick malt on the palate, plus marvelous, lively hops doing their fandango on the taste buds, lush mouthfeel, and lasting finish. This Belgian Scotch ale is an absolute joy to drink, and makes a perfect dessert beer,or sweet, rewarding nightcap. Very mellow and relaxing. A classic.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
Nice white head. Lightly cloudy amber/copper. Sharp spice aroma. Smooth and sweet, lightly syrupy. Like a barleywine mixed with some Belgian yeast.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2004
Bottle: Poured a cloudy amber with an off-white/pale yellow head that lasted reasonably. Aroma was dominated by spicey phenolics and toffee. I found the flavour quite ímeatyí, which I imagine was a yeast character, along with some herbaceous notes. Creamy mouthfeel, although it lacked character in the body.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Pours a reddish brown, dirty, with little head. Aroma is of bread and fresh apples and taste is mroe of same. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth aftertaste that is sweet. There is honey here. The beer sours a little as it warms. In the aftertaste, there is caramel, vanilla, and a hint of orange peel. Yum.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2004
This is a great Scotch ale. But this one Iím rating now has too much mettalic flavor. Malty and sweet flavor. Finishes smooth and creamy. Will have to rerate.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Great malt aroma. Molasses, plum, brown sugar, Twizzlers. Deep copper brown clear with tan foamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carb. Starts sweet and malty. Molasses, Twizzlers, sugar. Nice bitterness to tone sweetness down in the finish. Alcohol burn. After is sweet with some bitterness. Unfortunately, also some metallic taste.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Deep brownish copper with a foamy beige head. The aroma was strong. Malt and fruit. Full bodied, thick and syrupy. Flavor was a but funky. Sweet and cloying at times. And donít you know, I forgot to use my Scotch Silly tulip glass.
