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.

Pretty good - probably the 1st Belgian version of a Scotch beer that I’ve had. The 8% alcohol was slightly evident in the background, but not overpowering. Very nice deep ruby-red/amber color.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 Bottle. Nose of woody peat and sugar. Average amber body. Nice lil’ drink- sweet, and just the right bite of alcohol to warm you up.

#500. 330 ml bottle. Dark orange amber colour with a thick frothy, creamy, and rocky tan coloured head. Molasses, toffee, raisin, and light cherry aroma. Sweet and lightly acidic caramel, raisin, grapefruit, and molasses with a slightly metallic, earthy, and alcohol bitter finish. Full bodied, thick and syrupy but smooth, with a light alcohol burn.

This brew was a hell of a deal for two bucks, 8% and a ton of sweet malt. Pours a darker red/brown with a silky off-white head that left thick lacing behind. Very rich sweet malt aroma, caramel, spice, and a scotch/wood smell. Taste is very malty and thick, clings to the palate and attacks with its richness, this thing tastes very similar to many barleywines. Hints of brown sugar, raisins, plum, molasses all show up. The finish has just a light bitterness with trailing sweetness finishing off the taste. A very smooth warming brew.

rich, spicy sweet malt aroma. Pours a dark smoewhat cloudy brownish amber. Lots of honey abd molasses in this bad boy, Its nearly a barleywine. Very sweet, even sour in some spots. Some fruit presence as well.

I was suprised by this beer. It hand kind of a metallic taste. Kind of unique, but entirely unwelcome.

This ruby-colored ale poured in a thistle glass with a modest tan head. The aroma is quite malty, the flavor is hoppy, earthy and very satisfying. The fact that this scotch ale was brewed in Belgium illustrates once again that Belgian brewers know no limits.

Bottle picked up in Belgium. Drunk after Gordon Scotch, this was similar but with some Belgian character, dried fruits and coarse bitterness. Not so good really.
