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.

rlgk (15303) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2004
Nice shiny amber, with a good creamy yellow/white head. Has a fresh malty aroma that brings sweet choclaye and some vanilla. Flavor is malty but also brings hops. Creamy palate. Strong but alcohol is well hidden.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2004
Deep brown coloured. Very malty aroma. The flavour is sweet, malty and very fruity. It actually tastes quite Scottish.

FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours a hazy amber color that is topped by a tan head. The aroma is a malty, on the dry side, with notes of miso, and perhaps a faint musty character. Overall a fairly mellow nose on this one. The taste is sweet up front and finishes with a note that reminds me of tropical fruit. It is quite malty as well with perhaps a hint of sherry in the middle of the beer. As the beer warms up a bit I get notes of orange and spice cake. This is most definitely a Scottish inspired brew, though (thankfully for me) the Belgian brewer could not leave well enough alone, and allowed for some extra complexity that was contributed by the yeast strain. Appropriately the hop character of this beer is practically non-existant.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2004
fresh floral/fruity hops, plum, blueberry, light peach aroma and milk chocolate. deep amber, nice solid slowly dissipating head. light chocolatyness, followed by hoppy bitterness, then progresses to plums and floral notes including peach, tutti-fruity undertones, honey-dew melon. creamy and chocolatey with lightly fizzy bitterness all over the palate that lingers nicely. very nice beer overall, bitter, floral and fruity ale, a great beer.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Bottle. Dark reddish brown with an off white head. Sample was a touch warm but that is probably good for this one. Sweet maltiness, with a bit of the earthiness and caramel I’d expect from a scotch ale. Some nice coffee and very strong malty notes at times. Nice Beer. Mondiale 5T (Me).

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Bottle. Big malty sweet nose with notes of brown sugar and plums. Nice white head and good lacing. Big carmal malt flavor with a earthy finish. Nice beer.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Bottle-conditioned(33cl) Pours a rich amber/brown color with a thick tan head, retains some, great lace. Big malt carmel aroma, a bit of earthy spice hides in their too, seems like a fall day brew. Full-bodied, sweet. Big malt flavor, butterscotch, and as others have said a bit metallic. Has an interesting finish, not bitter, but a bit of a bite that holds some lingering interest(yeast? spice?). Overall, a nice full-bodied beer, with some complexity but the metallic really is a shame.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Big malt and caramel aroma. Poured dark amber color with nice sized tan head. Taste is brown sugar and yeast mostly with a small bit of cinnamon. Full bodied which nicely masks the 8%. Slight metalic taste.
