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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2013
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

pumpkinhead2 (409) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Bière brune aux reflets rouge-orangés, bien voilée d’une multitude de particules en suspension bien visible, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmontée d’un col couleur crème pas tellement large mais bien dense, mousseux et persistant, et qui colle sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain grillé, levure belge, cola et épices (anis, clou de girofle, muscade, poivre…), avec grains rôtis, noisette, alcool bien présent, et notes de houblon qui semble surtout herbacé et peut-être un peu citronné. Nez qui me semble un peu étrange, loin du style, complexité intéressante, intensité adéquate. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, malt surtout céréalier, pain grillé et grain moyennement rôti, avec un léger caramel qui fait très cola. Aussi, on a droit à un alcool très présent en bouche (et un peu mal intégré…) ainsi qu’à une levure belge et épicée, anis, clou de girofle et poivre se sont définitivement invités à la fête. Un houblon surtout herbacé est présent en fin de bouche amenant une amertume qui n’arrive pas vraiment à s’imposer au sein d’une finale trop alcoolisée. Belles complexité et intensité en bouche, mais intégration des différentes saveurs qui laisse un peu à désirer, et il me semble qu’on est un petit peu à côté du style. Une bonne bière, sans plus…

Hazy brown color, small off-white head. Aroma is alcohol, whiskey, barrel, oak, sugar and berries. Lots of caramel, brown sugar, alcohol is noticeable. Heavy sweetness. Thin to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Good.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Deep red with a bubbly head. Vinous, caramel malt aroma, nice hop mix, sour. Malty, bitter-sweet, soft flavour. Soft malty beer, a pleasant drop.

Aroma is a hit pale, botle is smal and insignificant, the taste is better then first glance

Mainuh_man (238) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear red-brown with a frothy, off-white head. Rich malt aromas: carmel, butterscotch, bread, some bubblegum. Flavor is quite sweet, with lots of caramel and tpbacco. Balances well in the middle and end with herby and resiny hop. Full body with a thick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, really nice malt character on this beer. A bit sweet, but delicious nonetheless.
