It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.
Ingredients: Water, pale ale malt, caramel malt, aromatic malt, sugar, yeast, Kent hop, hallertau hop.

Thick red pour with a bubly head. Deep deep brown red. Scent is of alcohol berry and spice. Taste is similar, the alcohol taste being the strongest. Very rich, the strongest alcohol taste I have found in a beer.

From bottle

Poured hazy brown. Small fast dissipating off-white head. Aroma malty and bready, with slight caramel notes. Flavor much of the same with more pronounced caramel and bread. Almost chewy at times. Alcohol burn as it warms with a sweet aftertaste. Full bodied and thick mouthfeel.

Beer poured was a cloudy brownish haze. Had a small cream colored head that faded fast. Has a unique aroma for a scotch ale. Some slight belgian type yeasty aromas with crystal malt and belgian type candy sugar flavors. The beer has the intial sweetness followed by dry finish with some lingering mild bitterness. Definately influenced by the belgian brewer in making their version of a scottish style ale. A good beer but not my favorite scotch ale, I prefer the fuller body and big malt taste of a wee heavy scotch ale.

Shared with gilvanblight at Smokeless Joe, Toronto. 330ml bottle I beleive? Red bown colour, faint swirly trace of white head. Some cocoa in the aroma and some caramel. Sweet malts, alcohol and caramel flavours. A bit too harsh for me.

"Had on tap at Monks. Poured a darker amber color with a nice tan fluffy head which left good lacing. Smelled of malts. Flavor was good of candi sugar and dark fruits. Was a good beer."

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 13, 2006
This one is good. Poured a deep leathery brown color with a loose head that faded quickly. Aroma is that of caramel and peat smoke with hints of dark fruit. Flavor is outstanding, heavy but smooth caramel, peat, dark cherries, and raspberries. It is full bodied and chewy without being overly so, well balanced with hop flavors and bitterness just coming through. This is the most complex and balanced scotch ale Ive had, its a shame it was done by the Belgians and not the Scots.

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - FEB 2, 2006
i contemplated brewing this...., glad that i didnt. not terrible in scotch ale standard, but hugely disappointing as a belgian. maybe i was expecting too much. cloudy amber w/ a small quickly disippating head. solid malty aroma, but the body... very uninspiring. ... must stay positive.

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle. Served in thistle-shaped glass. Red-brown with nice head and lace. Quite sweet, pipe tobacco, butter, late finishing bitterness just manages balance. Low carbonation for an ale made in Belgium, silky mouthfeel. A gentle, pleasent, easy drinking scotch ale that lacks complexity.

I thought this was really good. Has a bit of a brown sugary taste to it, but has a good bitterness to it as well towards the end i thought. Would enjoy another one of these.
