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.

Overpowering Metallic taste ruined my bottle of Scotch silly. It was an intriguing scottish ale from Belgium. Good appearance and decent texture but aroma and taste were ruined.

Cloudy deep amber to almost brown, the head is frohty, substantial, beige in color, the lace is in sheets. Nose is malt, molasses tones, sweet, a bit earthy or more to the point rye bread like. Front is malt, the top is light, finish is quite acidic, dry, lightly hopped, somewhat sour and the robustness stays till the finish. A belly warmer, and I think a must try for ’Strong Beer’ lovers. Ranks a respectable #290 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Very dark fruity flavors with a full bodied palate. Malty with a sweet nose in the finish. Drinkable tasty brew, supposedly brewed with whiskey...I don’t know about that, I just tasted regular malts.

Ernest (6198) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of brown/candy sugar, cardboard. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A very simple and very sweet sugar bomb.

Beautiful amber color. Fragrant sweet aroma of raisins and caramel. Overpowering sweet taste (not at all like any other Scotch Ale). It was very different and certainly enjoyable. Kind of like ’drinking a candy bar’. A pleasant change but you probably want to save this as a closer.

o.k. well, i’ll avoid the obvious "silly" puns and stick to the facts. This is a bit sweet for a "Scotch" - very caramely-malty body - Like a liquid Twix bar! Had this as a before dinner drink - so chewy and sweet - would have been a better dessert. It did have a bit of hops at the end, but the twix bar remained! -nice!

Malty, caramel, raisin and chocolate aroma. Pours w. minimal head but keeps a nice thin foam line throughout. Murky reddish-brown. Flavor continues along same lines w. definite sweetness nicely offset by an earthy hop tang. Nice complexity, yet easy to drink. Maybe a little too sweet but top notch.

Nice color and head. Appropriate malty flavor, but a little bitter aftertaste. It is slightly more hoppy than you would expect for a Scottish Ale.

This beer poured a medium dark amber color and formed a nice foamy off white head that was like a float and left some nice lace. A good deal of carbonation, usually accounting for the float look. The aroma was of caramel, spice and malt. The flavor was also of caramel and malt and was a bit sweet. The finish was a bit bitter. It hid it’s alcohol content well. I rather enjoyed the beer, even it the body was a little lighter than expected and a tad sweeter than I prefer. Worth checking out in my opinon.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2005 Penetrating caramel, maple syrup and earthy vanilla…Solemn berry wine and smoked whisky…Mineral bitterness towards the end accompanies the caress of sweetness and yeastiness...Silky belgian scotch ale…
