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, 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.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2004
Cloudy medium brown with a long lasting head. Did not pick up much aroma here beside a rudimentary malt. Big bubble gum and sugar syrup flavour hit, then malt and alcohol. Wow is this ever sweet. No hops or bitterness is evident.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Aroma of butter and caramel. Flavor leads off with caramel, then hops kick in, then there is a bit of a belgian yeasty funk in the finish. Pretty nice malty drinkable beer.

caesar (6682) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2004
Dark brown color, off white head. Aroma is chocolate malty, nutty and fruity. Creamy taste of malts. Bit sweet finish.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 (Bottled) Deep, hazy, dark ruby color with a large, foamy and lacy head. Very grainy-malty, sweet and toffeeish aroma with (straw)berries. Something between a barley wine and scotch ale. Sweet, very malty, dried-fruity, creamy toffee flavor with berries, some roastiness, and a mildly bitter finish. Hides the ABV completely. Full-bodied, sugary-sweet, oily, low-carbonated palate. Sweet, sure, but also a very balanced and extremely enjoyable dessert drink. Warming in the coldest winter, while still refreshing in the summer. The Silly brewery is just awesome!

skortila (5338) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2004
Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Smells much like dishwash polish. Looks are okay; brown coloured with an off white head. Taste is sweet, malty, i wasn't able to notice the dishwashpolish again. Bit sticky beer.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2004
Musty wood aroma with some Belgian phenolics and some background spice (coriander?) Rather sweet malty flavour with tomatoes, salt, cheese and some bitterness, but overall dominated by the cloying sweetness. Great head retention, full body, pretty low carbonation for a Belgian too. Smells good, but I just couldn't get past the sweetness.

I thought this was a very strong offering. Can:t give the apperance anything other than a 5. dark browny coppery colour with that perfect off-white head. Smells like the sweet stickyness you expect from a scotch ale...... plently of yeastly goodness to taste and sweet sweet sweet. very very good.
