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.

Bottled, at the Dovetail, London.
Brown with a slightly cloudiness to it. Sweet malty aroma that correlates pretty much to the flavour. Looks like a Belgian double. Easy drinking, middle of the road beer.

nice malty aroma, dark red with a big head, weak body, metallic, sweet peaty malt presence, some mossy flavors and a slight alcohol presence

Dark red. Aroma is smooth winter fruits. Flavours are sultanas, caramel, and grain. Has a nice foam in the mouth palate. OK.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Deep reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is sweet and slightly bready, and with earthy malts. Sweet flavor with brown sugar and syrup. Very robust at first but it thins and becomes much more mild. And the finish slightly dry. Not a bad beer. I'd drink this one again. It's like a stotch ale and a belgian beer combined.

Very differnt. A yeasty but yet very malty beer. The malts are very chewy yet it has a light mouth feel. I love the fact that this beer runs at 8%, and hides it very well.

How do you pass up a beer with "Silly" right there on the label? You don't, thats how. Clear brown, tan head. butterscotch, grain, and caramel aroma. sweet, big malty flavors upfront, then a herbal peppery flavor. Finish is comparatively weak and watery, but still a nice beer.

bierkoning (11408) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2003
Hoppy, earthy aroma. Creamy off-white head. Sweet and hoppy with licorice, caramel and butterscotch. Some metal and peach. Too sweet to be a really good beer, but has some complexity.

Cobra (1100) - - NOV 10, 2003
11.2 oz. brown longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a cloudy, murky darker shade of brown, with a fast fading tan head. Aromas of malts, mostly. Some fruitiness noticed, but not much in the hops department. Tasted smooth, with a silky, rich mouthfeel. Sweet caramel malts blend with the hops in a most unusual way. Very tasty, as far as beers go. Strong malt backbone literally smothers any hops trying to make it through. Finished sweet, and smooth.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Slightly murky, ruby-tinged, deep deep copper color. Fantastic, eternal, fluffy beige head clings to the glass. Aroma screams Twinkies! and (tropical?) fruit. Surprising juicy nectarine flavors, along with candy corn, bubble gum, vanilla, and a hint of road tar. Mouthfeel starts quite thick, is cleansed by bubbles, ending up tingly and resiny. Interesting finish- lingering fruit (plum and something else?), sorghum, slight oiliness and earthy bitterness. I'll be buying more tomorrow.
