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.

750ml served in a Duvel Tulip. A - Pours a dark and clear garnet with 2 fingers of stern khaki foam that retains very well forming a thin cap. A few round dots of lacing. S - Lots of fruit, plums, raisins, fruit cake, sweet malt, some spicy alcohol, T - Loads of caramel/toffee malts, apple brandy, vanilla, brown sugar, very sweet up front, brown bread crust, figs, cherries, apples, plums, dried bananas, sticky raisins, woody alcohol, spicy yeast. Finishes with a tea tannin bitterness. M - Very smooth and creamy feel, low carbonation, Wow! This was very good! Kind of like a Dubbel meets Scotch Ale. Very fruity with a dense malt backbone that had a woody alcohol edge to it. Great feel and I enjoyed every sip. I’m gonna pick up a few of these for Christmas/winter. Serving type: bottle 09-27-2012

Small bottle. Brown, big tan head. Nose is dark fruit, brown sugar, Belgian yeast spiciness. Flavour is really sweet toffee with esters and phenols, finish is a bit vinous. If the next craft beer trend is Belgian Scotches I might have to kill myself.

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, maar spijtig genoeg niet mijn ding.

Great taste. Really grew on me as I was drinking it. Not really a strong scotchy taste, very good.

Bottle from Total Wine. Muddy amber pour with almost no head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste matches -- malt, candy, sugar -- with a little plum on the finish. Delicious beer.

graziano85 (303) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 5, 2014
Deep amber colour, with almost no head. Smell is sweet, malty, caramel. Taste too, with moderate bitterness in the end and some alcohol. Good, but a bit too sweet for me.

radzik5555 (272) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Głęboko miedziano-rubinowe, lekko zmętnione. Piana kremowa, średnioobfita, znaczy szkło.
Aromat: Słodowy, miodowy, toffee, brzoskwinia, lekko metaliczny, banan, słodka czekolada mleczna, lekki aromat beczki dębowej i whisky.
Smak: Słodkie, karmelowe, lekko winne, wiśniowe, ledwie wyczuwalny alkohol. Goryczka bardzo niska.
Odczucie: Faktura oleista, nasycenie CO2 niskie w kierunku średniego, ciała dużo.
Całość: Ciekawe ale za słodkie. Po kilku łykach zaczyna być lekko zalepiające i męczące.

Maakun (568) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Deep magogany with small off-white head. Caramel, roasted malts, grapes, plums. Something almost minty and chemical, can’t really put my finger on it. Taste is quite sweet, almost sugary so, with light bitter in the finish. Medium bodied, quite strong alcohol presence. Hmmm, has some things I don’t like but overall not bad.
