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.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2004
decent enough stuff just tends a bit too much towards sweet and sticky. aroma of malted milk and caramel. tasted of brown sugar and golden syrup and self raising flour. but i still kind of liked it

heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2004
The goofy name does not do this brew justice. Has a huge tan head that fades to a small head. The color is deep brown with orange highlights. The aroma has cinnamon bread, raisins and vanilla. The flavor is walnuts, vanilla and some alcohol later in the glass. A very smooth and drinkable beer.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2004
Nice, fruity, earthy, malty aroma; strong, full flavored/bodied Scottish ale with a little bitterness, molasass and toffee notes, and a detracting metallic tinge. Otherwise, one of the better of the style Ive had.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2005 Sweet aroma, that certain Belgian caramel smell. Overly sweet palate, cloying, buttery, this is just another sweet Belgian strong ale.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2004
Typical Belgium nose of sweet malt, cardboard and spring flowers. Pours a murky red/brown with a tightly packed white head. Nice mouthfeel, flavour is initially very sweet, honeyed malt with some toasted malt notes drifting in the faint background. Alcohol becomes slightly evident as it warms. Very nice overall, had it with some soft blue vein cheese - life is good.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2004
Cloudy medium brown with a long lasting head. Did not pick up much aroma here beside a rudimentary malt. Big bubble gum and sugar syrup flavour hit, then malt and alcohol. Wow is this ever sweet. No hops or bitterness is evident.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Aroma of butter and caramel. Flavor leads off with caramel, then hops kick in, then there is a bit of a belgian yeasty funk in the finish. Pretty nice malty drinkable beer.

caesar (6816) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2004
Dark brown color, off white head. Aroma is chocolate malty, nutty and fruity. Creamy taste of malts. Bit sweet finish.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 (Bottled) Deep, hazy, dark ruby color with a large, foamy and lacy head. Very grainy-malty, sweet and toffeeish aroma with (straw)berries. Something between a barley wine and scotch ale. Sweet, very malty, dried-fruity, creamy toffee flavor with berries, some roastiness, and a mildly bitter finish. Hides the ABV completely. Full-bodied, sugary-sweet, oily, low-carbonated palate. Sweet, sure, but also a very balanced and extremely enjoyable dessert drink. Warming in the coldest winter, while still refreshing in the summer. The Silly brewery is just awesome!

skortila (5472) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2004
Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Smells much like dishwash polish. Looks are okay; brown coloured with an off white head. Taste is sweet, malty, i wasn't able to notice the dishwashpolish again. Bit sticky beer.
