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.

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.

Choos (725) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2004
Powerful malt, buttersctoch and alcohol aroma. Brandy coloured heading toward red though slightly cloudy. Malty sweet with lingering bitterness but has metallic side notes. Nice and thick drinking becomes syrupy which seemed out of place with the metallic notes.

Lunkie (1786) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2004

Ungstrup (34226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2004
The aroma is sweet caramel. The color is red-brown and it has a fine though collapsing beige head. The flavor is sweet caramel - nice for a Scotch ale. An good Scotch ale.

heemer77 (5290) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2004
The goofy name does not do this brew justice. Has a huge tan head that fades to a small head. The color is deep brown with orange highlights. The aroma has cinnamon bread, raisins and vanilla. The flavor is walnuts, vanilla and some alcohol later in the glass. A very smooth and drinkable beer.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2004
Nice, fruity, earthy, malty aroma; strong, full flavored/bodied Scottish ale with a little bitterness, molasass and toffee notes, and a detracting metallic tinge. Otherwise, one of the better of the style I’ve had.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2005 Sweet aroma, that certain Belgian caramel smell. Overly sweet palate, cloying, buttery, this is just another sweet Belgian strong ale.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2004
Typical Belgium nose of sweet malt, cardboard and spring flowers. Pours a murky red/brown with a tightly packed white head. Nice mouthfeel, flavour is initially very sweet, honeyed malt with some toasted malt notes drifting in the faint background. Alcohol becomes slightly evident as it warms. Very nice overall, had it with some soft blue vein cheese - life is good.
