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.

DYCSoccer17 (3663) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Aroma is vinous and fruity with pitted dried fruits. Subtle smokiness as well as a small sweet aroma. Mild musty cobwebs. Garnet amber color thats slightly cloudy with a nice foams light tan head with decent staying power. Dry dry dry. Bitter to start turning moderately smokey with a weird sweet/cobweb/funkiness to finish. Finishes thin and dry. This is way too funky for my liking. Needs more of the smoke notes and an oilier body to be a decent scotch.

Darker brown, tan head. Sweet, malty, with notes of brown sugar, moolasses and maple. Very light bitterness rounds things out nicely. Fuller bodied. Very good. Thanks OKBeer.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 28, 2005
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very malty and sweet, brown sugar and yeast with notes of dark, ripe fruit. Flavor is also sweet - almost syrupy - hints of maple add to this perception, but its balanced a bit by a noticible yet mild hoppiness. Medium to full body and gentle, creamy carbonation. Very enjoyable.

raymow (1492) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Pretty good - probably the 1st Belgian version of a Scotch beer that Ive had. The 8% alcohol was slightly evident in the background, but not overpowering. Very nice deep ruby-red/amber color.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 Bottle. Nose of woody peat and sugar. Average amber body. Nice lil drink- sweet, and just the right bite of alcohol to warm you up.
