COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Poured extremely murky dark copper-brown with a huge foamy light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, bready yeast, cloves and dark fruits, alcohol on warming. Taste is a touch metallic, and the alcohol asserts, but the caramel malt is appealing and the fruit and spice is there too. A little too syrupy and alcoholic to be a true scotch ale, but ifn you call it something else, its pretty nice. Would stand up to spicy food nicely.

beeranarchist (232) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
Spicy and fruity aroma, some caramel. Great, longlasting head. The taste reveals that its belgian. Its a little spicy and yeasty and some dark fruits too. Good beer, but I prefer scotch ales from... Scotland....

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2005
I liked this one, a bit sweet, but good overall, malty as hell! I usually hate that, but it complemented my TEX-MEX bowl quite well! Dark fruit, malty sweetness dominate. I couldnt notice the alcohol much. Good overall

Stew41 (1947) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 11, 2005
Consumed 30 days post the used by date but I figured it wouldnt be crucial. Quite light in colour for a scotch ale; murky light caramel brown. Varietal nose, heavy malts, raisened, but not over the top. Quite full bodied in the mouth. Malty nose fade a little in the back palate and some fizz takes over. Malts have a slightly hard, pongy note which detracts a little. Could be associated with the possible lackof freshness? Solid beer but not as impressive, IMHO, as the 83% rating suggests.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2005
Caramel and dark fruits in the aroma. Clear, dark brown with nice tan head that lasts. Dark fruits, caramel and nutty flavours as well as a fairly alcoholic finish. Strong alcohol, full body. Rich. Bottle. Entered from notes.

kramer (6034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2005
8.3 oz (250ml) bottle. Pours a dark ruby with red highlights, small head that fades quickly to a thin film. Aroma smells strongly of malt, alcohol, and smoke, with a slight floral hop note. A little too much alcohol even. Flavor is high in malt and alcohol up front with a little bitterness in the finish, also some butterscotch. Mouthfeel is very good. Good amount of carbonation with a mouth coating syrupy feel left after the gulp. Not an amazing beer, but Im glad I tried it.

bb (8757) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 8, 2005

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Thick light tan head on a hazy dark amber body. Sweet somewhat candied fruit aroma with yeasty tones - has an edge of homebrew to it. Sweet flavor as well with a sour tone of lemon. Lots of malt and fruit along with some light spices and chocolate. Good drinkability and really tasty.
