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.

fonefan (48746) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle. Brown colour with a nice lightly tan head. Sweet aroma of malt, caramel and hints of wood, yeast and some alcohol. Big malty flavour with notes of sweetness and hints of roastedness.

yespr (44810) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 33 cL bottle. Pours hazzlenut brown with a lasting light brown and creamy head. Caramel malty nose with a slight yeastyness. At the following sips I noticed a very strange and astringent sulphorish note to the aroma, quite unpleasant. Soft and a bit creamy mouthfeel. Very sweet malty flavour, slight metallic/blood like note. Sweet fruity too, both with fruit notes from malt and sugar but also a minor hops fruityness. Soft malty finish. Nice.

Ungstrup (37317) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2004
The aroma is sweet caramel. The color is red-brown and it has a fine though collapsing beige head. The flavor is sweet caramel - nice for a Scotch ale. An good Scotch ale.

joergen (27984) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
Bottled. Red brown coloured with an off white head. Aroma of caramel and spices. Sweet butterish flavour with notes of caramel.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Dark amberish brown colour, mediumsized beige thich creamy head. Aroma is caramel, leather, wood some green apples as well as slight alcohol. Flavour is sweet malts, raisins, alcohol, wood slightly "wet-burnt-wood" also. A very wellbalanced and pleasant beer to drink.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pitch black, brownish head. Typical roasted, licorice like-notes. Caramel, dried fruits - all the good, heavy solid flavours. And a strong alcohol in the finish. Potent and pleasuring. 221297

omhper (24976) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2007
Bottled at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Cloudy mahogany coloured , rich firm head. Woody caramelly nose. Sweet with evident notes of spun sugar, fairly soft mouthfeel and full bodied. Toffee and caramel is completely dominant until grassy, resiny bitterness sets in. A warming but well sweet beer that I find myself enjoying thoroughly.

Travlr (24313) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle. Dark and hazy brown. Aroma of figs, dates. Taste has butterscotch and dark fruits. Decemt.

Dark brown color. A quite good Strong Belgian Ale, with malt and caramel, quite sweet, some darker caramel to account for the Scotch denomination, low bitterness; it lacks some character.

2003-01-15, corked 75cl, bottled 06-2000, 2 1/2 ys old, 8-5-8-4-15=40
Beautiful hazy amber color, creamy head. Strong aroma of malt, caramel, some cork. Good balance of sweetness and bitterness, age character, but it has aged less well than the Cervoise de l’Avouerie d’Anthisnes (tasted in parallel); a lot of malt; not too much hop.
