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.

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 ’meaty’, which I imagine was a yeast character, along with some herbaceous notes. Creamy mouthfeel, although it lacked character in the body.

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 I’m rating now has too much mettalic flavor. Malty and sweet flavor. Finishes smooth and creamy. Will have to rerate.

Nate (4114) - 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 (17300) - 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.
