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.

vanvenlo (1788) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2004
9 May 2004 - Caramel malt aroma. Cloudy brown colour with sudsy lacing. Sweet hoppy caramel with metallic notes. Short flavour, spiritous, with a fizzy hop finish, medium mouthfeel.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Murky! Far better take on a Scotch than most, thats for sure. Unusual in its big yeastiness; I mean this thing is pungently kind of sour from the yeast. Not only spicy. Some real woodiness to the flavor, peaty (almost - you can tell the alch is prety high here as its taking a bit of control over the flavor) - very nice beer. Sweet, but still crisp enough...

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2004 The nose is sweet and sour, but in a good way. The head and lace is thick full and lasting. The palate drinks light for the beers strength, but there is a nice sweetness. Long warm finish.

TBone (16438) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
Dark nut brown, small tanned head. Aroma has toffee, butterscotch, sourness, caramel - complex. Very sweet toffee flavor, like cream liquer. Short finish.

sloth (2844) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Medium sized light brown head, good retention and plenty of lace. Hazy amber/brown color. Big malty, bready nose. Medium body, fairly creamy. Large malt flavors, fruity, hint of roast and smoke. Finish is fairly sweet. Interesting brew.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Sparkling clear, ruby ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention with thick, cumulus lacework. The aroma is full of butterscotch, toffee and tons of fruit. The malty, fruity flavor is well-balanced. Full-bodied with a dry, crisp mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, semi-bitter, dry finish. Pulls up just short of being a world class brew. A must try!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Pours a muddy brown, which quickly consolidates into deep black, topped with a spotty, roasted tan head. Great and powerful aromatics: grapes at first, followed by cherries, toffee, butterscotch. Sweets and alcohol, the perfect combination! You get the feeling of a candy bar, melted down and boozed up! Huge, thick malt on the palate, plus marvelous, lively hops doing their fandango on the taste buds, lush mouthfeel, and lasting finish. This Belgian Scotch ale is an absolute joy to drink, and makes a perfect dessert beer,or sweet, rewarding nightcap. Very mellow and relaxing. A classic.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
Nice white head. Lightly cloudy amber/copper. Sharp spice aroma. Smooth and sweet, lightly syrupy. Like a barleywine mixed with some Belgian yeast.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2004
Bottle: Poured a cloudy amber with an off-white/pale yellow head that lasted reasonably. Aroma was dominated by spicey phenolics and toffee. I found the flavour quite meaty, which I imagine was a yeast character, along with some herbaceous notes. Creamy mouthfeel, although it lacked character in the body.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Pours a reddish brown, dirty, with little head. Aroma is of bread and fresh apples and taste is mroe of same. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth aftertaste that is sweet. There is honey here. The beer sours a little as it warms. In the aftertaste, there is caramel, vanilla, and a hint of orange peel. Yum.
