This one is different than the Bieropholie version as it has a different yeast and hops. It has also some difference through the fermentation process. The malts and the honey are not exactly the same. And, of course, this one has less alcohol. They have the same type of aromas, but some esters are really not the same.

From my brother for my wedding gift: pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruitiness, some earthiness, and hoppiness. Taste is sweet but not too sweet. Light bitterness. Booze is present but well covered in a sense. Large body. Gets you a bit crunk. I like it.

Probably my favorite Scotch Ale so far. As soon as you open the bottle, you get the nice and sweet aromas of honey, caramel and a light scent of maple syrup. The color is of an opaque dark brown, lightly syrupy. Its very rond to the palate, even if the alcohol is strong. The taste is delicious. A mix of salted caramel, nuts, maple syrup and a nice touch of honey. The MacKroken Flower is a bit heavy, but its very enjoyable when the weather is cold. I highly recommend it. Enjoy

Bottle. Clear dark amber body, small beige head with average retention. Sweet, malty aroma: toffee, honey, molasses, figs, dried berries. Taste is subtle and complex: honey, caramel, licorice, hints of leather and herbs. Very nicely done.

Idiosynkrasie (7307) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Hazy, mahogany coliur with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, sulphureous beige head. Sweet-ish, malty aroma, notes of caramel, toffee, rock sugar, treacle, candied almond. Taste is sweet malty, nuttily, notes of caramel, malt lozenge, toffee, rock sugar, treacle, molasses, candied almond; bitter hoppy interludes; warming alcoholic finish. Oily, viscous texture, slightly sticky palate. Very sweet, but not in an unpleasant way.
