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.

I’ve very much enjoyed ’scotch’ for a long time. I was first introduced to it by Michael Jackson in his TV series, when he asks for a ’scotch at the end of a meal. Like a good Scottish ale with a Belgian twist, complimenting both but sitting as neither in the absolute. This a beautiful rich full flavoured beer, perhaps a little sweet for some, but perfect for others. Perfect to enjoy after a meal!

Medium low frothy tan head with low retention. Hazy reddish brown. Aroma is spicy (clove, nutmeg), drupe fruits (peach) and molasses. Taste is sweet with low bitterness, intense, toasted sugar (caramel) and sweet malty.

DocJitsu (1717) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours a caramel amber with a light khaki head. Toffee and caramel nose. Starts more light on the palate, but becomes more heavy. Caramel flavor becomes increasingly sweet, but never becoming overly so. Flavor becomes richer after a moment on the palate. Finishes as sweet as it becomes. The bitterness, again, subdued, increases along with the sweetness.

Gluepot (456) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2016
A soft off-white head with excellent lacing. The body is dense and opaque. Colour is a rich chocolate caramel. The nose features caramel and berries. This is a top notch euro scotch ale. The carmel body is smooth and rich. There are touches of banana from the yeast and blackberries. this is not my favourite approach to a scotch ale - I prefer roasted malt, more nuts and a touch more hops in the background. But this is extremely well crafted.

Ysok02 (1054) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2016
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez sur le noisette, le caramel, le café au lait. Bouche ŕ l’attaque onctueuse sur des notes torréfiées, de l’élégance, de la fraîcheur et une finale sur les fruits secs. Une bičre élégante sans aucune liourdeur.

Estebanik (784) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 27, 2016
Niska piana, szybko opada, względnie zdobiąc szkło. Aromat karmelowy, chlebowy i niestety mocno alkoholowy. Jest nutka suszonych owoców. W smaku w stronę wytrawnego, dość mocno wysycone. Alkohol dalej jest wyczuwalny, choć już az tak nie przeszkadza. Po ogrzaniu alkohol nieco się gubi, a piwo robi się znacznie bardziej "chewy". Jest okej, chociaż alkohol dość skutecznie odbiera przyjemność z degustacji.

Fules (834) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 19, 2016
Közepes, hosszú hab. Barna szín. Pörkölt jellegű, kissé savanykás, fűszeres illat. Pörkölt és égetett cukros jelleg, picike savanykás, fűszeres mellékízzel. Utóízében a korty folytatódik, és jó sokáig kitart. Testes sör.

Beer5000 (5962) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2016
330 ml bottle. Unclear amber body with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is malty with caramel and some dry fruit. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, light fruity and moderate bitterness. Fine body and sweet malty aftertaste. Kinda nice, but a bit too sweet and somehow a bit one-dimensional.

Rugamu (134) - SPAIN - JUN 12, 2016
Excelente scotch que pude tomar de barril con un sabor dulzón que se hace muy agradable, aunque puede llegar a saturar a quien no le guste esos sabores. Puedo repetir fácilmente.

puren (727) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - MAY 18, 2016
zmętnione, miedziane, obfita drobna trwała piana nie zdobi szkła;
delikatny - syrop klonowy, słodka śliwka w słodkiej czekoladzie;
ciało średnie, puszyste, całkiem gładkie, finisz goryczkowy;
cukier, przypalony karmel, drewniano-alkoholowa goryczka wydaje się silna z powodu bardzo silnej początkowej słodyczy;
strasznie słodkie w nieprzyjemny sposób.
