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.

blankboy (7415) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark cloudy prune colour with a large somewhat-lasting frothy off-white head -- looks great. Very sweet aroma of fruit, malt and brown sugar. Flavour -- whoa! -- thats not very good, theres something quite unpleasant in the aftertaste. Its somewhat metallic. What a letdown after the decent aroma, I had to dump some of it away. Very dissapointing.

Chestnut colouring, low tanned head. Light roasty, fruit and herbal aroma. Fruity, spongy, a little roast. Solid mouthfeel, sparkly. Sweet aftertaste.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Deep amber body with mild visible carbonation, very fine particles, and a thick, foamy off-white head. Sweet, worty aroma with notes of molasses, hot caramel, cherry, and some prominent yeast character including bubble gum. Somewhat oxidized flavor and drier than expected. Has a woody, syrupy quality to it. Palate is somewhat lifeless. Not really to my liking, but Ill have to re-rate this one in the future.

Boutip (6087) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy amber color ale with a super huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of peaty malt with sweet caramel malt. Taste is quite rich with strong syrupy malt, caramel malts, figs dry raisins and nice subtle funky touch from the yeast. Body is definitely above average with a syrup-like body and alcohol is well hidden.

thegreenrooster (4148) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Pour is a deep brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is sugar and malts with a touch of hops. Flavor is brown sugar with a hard core metallic aftertaste. Wow this goes down hill fast. Maybe a bad bottle but if not this is not a good brew. Too sweet and metallic.

GregClow (3293) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Hazy ruby-brown colour with a moderate mocha coloured head. Lots of brown sugar in both aroma and flavour. Also some mild spice and fruit notes, and some booziness in the finish as it warms up. Some very subdued hop notes try to come through in the finish. A nice, warming beer that serves well as an after-dinner sipper.

madsberg (11612) - Sborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2005
Bottled @ Fynske ldage: Dark brown coloured. Dusty. Fluffy beige head. Spices, malt, fruit and some herbal notes is characterizing this beer. Is quite buttery and sweet. Some acidity, alcohol and yeast is notable. Is medium bodied and has some dryness in the end.

Thanks Hogtown Harry. Dark brown, big frothy off-white head. Looks really good. Strong alcohol in otherwise mild aroma. First impression is metallic bottle like taste. Strong spicy malt taste - more Belgian than Scotch I would say. Lots of red grape skin as well. Medium mouthfeel, a little watery. Not bad, but no complexity, too strong, and an odd taste / combo - really didnt like it the more I drank it. Oh well, worth a try!
