(Bottle 25 cl) Pitch black, brownish head. Typical roasted, licorice like-notes. Caramel, dried fruits - all the good, heavy solid flavours. And a strong alcohol in the finish. Potent and pleasuring. 221297

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours bright cloudy red with a huge tanned bubbly foam head. Citric sour and tart. Buttery brown sugar in the nose. More of the same in the flavour. Similar to a flemish sour. Woody, some chocolate malts, brown bread. Vineous.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with a huge tan head with heavy sustained lacing. Very very good looking beer. Big sweet malt aromas. Smells thick and malty as hell.
Tastes of strong caramel. Oak flavors like you would taste in aged port. Very nutty with a molasses finish. Big, full-bodied beer. Very nice Scotch ale.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad Scotch ale, hazy light brown in color with a sudsy, retained tan head. The aroma is malty as should be, although there seems to be an odd rustiness to it. The flavor is rich and slightly sweet with caramel tastes, and has a snappy-but-mild bitter finish. The serious ABV is well hidden until it hits the belly. Nice & warm.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Satisfying Belgian version of a Scotch ale. Poured an amber colour with ruby highlights and a towering beige head that left outcrops of lace when it finally settled down. Sweet, rich aroma of sticky date pudding, butter, peppery alcohol and dark malt. Medium-bodied and lightly carbonated. Sweet and malty middle, with a long restrained bitter finish that lights a heater in the stomach lining. Sweet and malt-driven, so true to style. A little astringent in the finish, but overall the alcohol is well integrated. Nicely put together but the flavour is a little short on complexity. (Bottle, best before 12/8/05)
