Aroma: mm, soy, sourish... yummy, earthy, malt... rotting strawberries. Vaguely acrid... caramel, some hops. shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2007
Appearance: very deep red-brown,...beige head. Pretty nice... apetizing.
Flavour: candisugar, some fruity acidity, mushroomy, chervil, nutty aftertaste.
Palate: pretty good but simple. Slightly harsh.
Pours with a nice moderate tan, short-lived head. The color is a very deep brown, ruby-like, translucent but bright. The scent is definitely earthy, somewhat pungent but also very malty and sweet. Oh yeah, it tastes amazing. Very distinct, with a somewhat peaty scottish ale taste. lLots of malt, a bit of sweet and a nice rounding nutty complexity.There are just so many flavors its hard to list them all. Overall, a wonderful beer, the brasserie d’Achouffe continues to amaze me. Rvrndmaynard (47) - Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2007
On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. Dark brown color, sweet and malty. Great beer all around, but i think it is better off the tap than in the bottle. Funknmilla (751) - WAYNE, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2007

Oh man, really, really good. A scotch ale done right is so good, and this is awesome. I think I’ve had this before and just never rated it. ScoWRee (423) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of bubble gum...Taste is sweet,yeasty, malty. Intresting. Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. Dark brown colour with a tan head. Malty aroma with a sourish scent. Sweet malty flavour with notes of yeast & alcohol. sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2007
bottle at a tasting. not bad. i just thought it was supposed to be a darker, maltier La Chouffe. which it kinda is. definitely mostly sweet malts, a bit thicker, less alcohol. still belgian yeast esters. patrick767 (4181) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2007
11.2 oz bottle - Pours reddish brown with a moderately sized, foamy head. The aroma is sweet, yeasty, and has some caramel. The malty flavor has some good dark fruit notes hiding in there. It’s medium bodied and goes down easy at 8.5% abv. I hadn’t pegged this as a Scotch Ale as the Belgian character is definitely there. I suppose it’s a hybrid of sorts. Good beer.
