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.

This is a great Scotch ale. But this one I’m rating now has too much mettalic flavor. Malty and sweet flavor. Finishes smooth and creamy. Will have to rerate.

Nate (3998) - 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 don’t you know, I forgot to use my Scotch Silly tulip glass.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2004
Quite a reddish brown with a very brown head that falls surprisingly quickly to a thin film. Some yeast cloudiness. Odd, "wet sock" aroma with a hint of choc/coffee/alcohol. Flavour much the same, very unusual all around but strangely drinkable.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - Great European Beerfest 8, Sharp Edge Tavern - East Liberty, PA] Poured a dark copper color with a creamy off-white head. Nice malt aroma with some sweetness, maybe toffee or vanilla, that blends well. Good smoky flavor with some earth notes at the beginning, blending into sweet malts and finally a very sweet hoppy and malt finish.

rlgk (16892) - 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 (5105) - 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 (4127) - 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.

Ruby caramel in colour. Aroma had a caramel sweetness, malty and yeasty. Flavour of yeast, citrus, slight sweetness. Light body. Finishes musty with some citrus.
