richlamb (18) - - OCT 5, 2013
A very pleasant drinking ale, with a fairly "generic" flavour, lacking the complex malt profile of a true scotch ale. The aroma vaguely malty, with something like a brett character (hard to tell after all the french cheese I’ve been eating). The flavour is nicely malty with a lingering bitterness (slight harshness) in the aftertaste. Combined with a medium body, this is very easy to drink, but I wouldn’t rave about it.

Dark brown color, off-white head with some retention and lacing. Aroma has notes of tosted malts with candy sugar. Flavor is slightly sweet, some toasted malts and spices. Ligt sweetness on palate with very low carbonation.

Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2017
From the bottle. Reasonable, very little taste of scotch, other beers create the same (or more) flavors without any Scotch, so I am not getting the point.

Tvielootje (3) - Oudenburg, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2017 does not count
Gedronken van’t vat, in een leuke ijzeren beker. Was dan ook het enige positieve. Waterig, geen schuim. Zeker geen scotchsmaak. Rook niets, smaakte nergens naar.

ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2016
25cl bottle. It pours a reddish dark brown colour with a thick and tan head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Flavour is sweet, bitter and sour at different times and at the same time. Overall, nice beer.

BlueGaljoen (166) - FRANCE - FEB 26, 2016
Belle bière facile à boire Belle robe sombre Goûts noisette grillée Uniquement testée en pression

kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle sampled. Clear brown with a small tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, toffee and yeast. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

TaxiDriver (1830) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle. A soft malty smell, light bitter, like cola without sugar. The medium large pale beige head is creamy and foamy with a normal duration. The body is nearly black. A light alcoholic and malty taste, some coffee. The body is medium strong and creamy with a lively carbonation.

paulvanpelt (660) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
Kastanjebruin bier met rode gloed, nauwelijks een schuimkraag. In de neus wat karamel en mouten. Verder aroma van groen fruit, fris. Smaak is licht bitter, medium zoet. Vooral erg waterig. Weinig aan.

Rubin77 (2586) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 18, 2016
F: no real had, some pale brown bubbles. C: red-brown to dark brown, clear. A: malty, caramel, fruitiness, cherries, syrupy, hint of chocolate, T: malty sweetness, some dark caramel, dark fruits, some coffee, dry bitter tones on the palate, nuts, medium body, lower carbonated, 0,25l bottle.

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2016
Bue à la pression. Marron foncée. Fine mousse beige. Nez caramel. Palais alcool et malt caramélisés. À peine sucré. Finale moyenne. Lassante au bout de qques gorgées.
