GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2004
mellow, smells sweet and tastes better after warming up a little, complex flavor but keeps you sipping to figure it out

3.3
frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Dark mahogney color with a dense creamy head. Malty aroma with hints of smoke and leather. Lightly smokey malt flavor with some earhty notes and a slight nuttiness int he finish. Fairly well crafted, but scotch ales aren’t really my thing.

2.5
Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Creamy off-white head, later soapy, diminishing. Smell: caramel popcorn-molasses, plums and figs, light floral honeysuckle, and some alcohol. Great copper color and good clarity. Retronasally....spice? Flavor one dimensional--eggs?? in middle, green beans at end--are these yeast flavors? Wierd, wierd, wierd. Finish semi-dry and clean, aftertaste of green beans. Thanks, wunder!

2.9
wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2004
22 oz bottle, tulip glass. Average sized, creamy, off-white, lasting head is on a cloudy, red-brown body. Molasses and caramel malt (M); light alcohol, plume, prune, raspberry, honey aromas. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet finish. Medium-full body, watery/oily texture, soft carbonation, slightly alcoholic. The bottom line is: weird "protien" taste at the end...eggs? green beans? some sweet tea too?

2.7
ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Musty, damp malt, slightly pungnet aroma that pours out dark brown/orange. Small head with strong oily lacing. Flavor is complex, maybe too complex. I don’t know if I am just not used to this brew style or I just don’t like this beer. Certainly not the best offering from Moylans.

3.4
Bohica (36) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice aroma, somewhat sweet. Very little head, low carbonation, which fits the style. Deep reddish brown with a coppery tint. Full bodied, somewhat sweet, very lightly hopped, just enough to mask some of the alcohol. Slight esther/phenolic flavor at the finish. Overall, a nice take on a traditional Scotch Strong Ale

1.9
duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2004
Bottle. Yipes, super sweet and sticky. Kahlua, peat, with a hit of soy. Malty and very sweet.

3.4
bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Bottle. Dark ruby brown with almost no head. Sweet malt/caramel aroma. Rich caramel/tofee/brown sugar flavor. This is easy to drink and hides its alcohol well. Low carbonation. It’s not an intense beer, but it’s well put together - like a real scotch ale and not your typical American overdone take.

3.2
Enniskillen (2053) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Very slight hop bite, but it is present, very malty, brown sugar and caramel, almost like a brown, very little carbination, color like most scotch ales, nice on the palate, no head on the pour.

3.1
omhper (25118) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2004
Bottled, thanks hopsrus! Deep copper colour, huge, lively head. Flowery toffee aroma with notes of raspberries. Sweet, fruity and full bodied. Thick and syrupy rather than firm. Grassy bitter finish. A bit raw.
