Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium brown with amber highlights and a well-retained, dense khaki head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty malts, soapy hops, and lightly clovey yeast.. a bit too soft and airy. The flavor had a little more substance to it.. nutty notes, toffee, and a dusting of cocoa at the core.. darker fruit extended outward from there, along with cloves and a touch of banana.. prickly carbonation and dry Belgian-y spices on the edges and through the finish.. tasty. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with prickly carbonation as mentioned.. the yeast played a larger role as it warmed up, and I enjoyed that.. overall a decent brew.

A brown beer, nice, but a bit harsh in the finish and so not super drinkable. Brown coloured, no head. Very malty and rich aged malt aroma.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Tap - @ RHP. Pours clear caramel-brown, nice medium fizzy whitish head, fully disappearing. Nice aromas of caramel, malted chocolate, roasted nuts, and dark sweet fruit, plums and figs. Tastes of malted vanilla, nice dark fruit, touch of bananas and other esters. Medium-full bodied, rather lively (belying its appearance) with long finish. Good brew. Belgian in ancestry fer shark.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle - Scratch 80. Poured a deep amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, dried pile of raked leaves, caramel, toasted bread, and some yeastiness. Tastes of caramel, toasted nuts, cola, and yeast. Somewhat on the thinner side.

slowrunner77 (6084) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
more a brown ale that happens to have belgian yeast than a belgian ale that happens to be brown, if that makes sense. a nice crisp, malty sweet american brown ale base, subtle hops make a showing. as it warms the interplay between the dry, spicy belgian yeast and the malt is really nice. good brew."

Smells like an awesome dubbel, great flavor, nutty and a great dry finish like it

Pours a hazy deep amber with a medium tan head. Aroma is spicy with a bit of sweet maltiness...yeasty...touch of bubblegum. Flavor follows suit...slightly more fruity...a bit of banana to it...clovey. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/clovey and dry.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle from PUB’N. Pours a great shade of ruby with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is rich, complex, a nice figgy and berry-fruity nose with hints of spice, hops, and yeasty malt. Tastes malty, spicy, rather dry, with a lot of Grand Cruey fruity notes, figgy, cherry, spicy, and cobwebby old-aley esters. This one is outstanding, and I’d love to see this introduced all year round. I discovered Scratch 4, and I discovered this one, which I would call Musty Dusty Old Ale.

This is a dubbel. Nutty, toasty, semi sweet, light fruit esters... Overall a solid brew but nothing too great.
