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

Aromat: słodki, estrowy, z owocami suszonymi na czele, cukrem kandyzowanym, karmelem, tostami, lekkim chmielem ziołowym. Alkohol o dziwo dobrze ukryty.

Wygląd: barwa czerwona, głęboka, z wyraźnymi drobinkami pływającymi w całym szkle. Piana jasno beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, ale umiarkowanie trwała.

Smak: wyraźnie słodki, lekko złamany kwaskową nutą. Następnie tosty, przypalony karmel, cukier kandyzowany, suszone owoce, melonoidyny i wyraźny alkohol. Goryczka niewielka, delikatna, choć akcent ziołowy wyczuwalny. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i wyraźnie słodowy finisz z nutą alkoholową.

Bardzo nie równe piwo. Piłem je już wcześniej i było bardzo dobre. Teraz każda z 8 butelek, jakie kupiłem okazyjnie jest inna, choć datę maja tą samą.

Foffern (1494) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle at home. 1 year old bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark mahogany color with a big beige head. Sweet aroma of raisin, leather, brown sugar, gooseberries, chocolate, toffee, wood and Belgian yeast. The flavor is also sweet with more caramel, dried fruit, leather and brown sugar. Has a soft and silky mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A sweet and well-balanced ale.

Small creamy light brown diminishing head with clear dark red body. Light cereal malt with wood touch. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Average duration flavor lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. And a bit of vinegar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finn (5176) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2015
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsdalen. Mørkebrun med et lite rødskjær. Middels høyt skum med litt farge. Tynn lacing. Forsiktig whiskyaroma. Litt søt. Smaken en blanding av søt frukt og whisky. Ikke vellykket. Litt syrlig etter hvert.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with thin off white head. Nose is big sweet malt. Taste is also very sweet with lots of caramel and toffee. Strange aftertaste but still good.

Een beetje ijzer geur, ook wat caramel. zoetig-bitterige smaak. 8% maar eerder een doordrinker. Goeie balans en afdronk.

77ships (6130) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
330 ml. bottle. BBF 28/05/15. Red amber, little tanned head. Nose is oxidized, light cough syrup, candy, sugar, herbal syrup, faint metallic note. Taste is herbal, cough syrup, sweet good kind of oxidation, candy, quite a bit of cloves, syrupy,… Low carbonation, oxidized body but still solid and syrupy. I got an older bottle but it held up quite well. Not necessarily to my preference but quite a good profile if you are into vintage & BE beers. For fans of oxidation, cloves (& other spices) and cough syrup.

JanVah (237) - SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2015
På flaska importerad från Belgien. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad. Doft av russin. Väldigt söt smak med en svag beska som hänger kvar länge i gommen.
