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.

I’ve very much enjoyed ’scotch’ for a long time. I was first introduced to it by Michael Jackson in his TV series, when he asks for a ’scotch at the end of a meal. Like a good Scottish ale with a Belgian twist, complimenting both but sitting as neither in the absolute. This a beautiful rich full flavoured beer, perhaps a little sweet for some, but perfect for others. Perfect to enjoy after a meal!

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 Più che discreta birra scotch, gusto caramellato e abbastanza dolce ma senza essere troppo invadente.

Pours a rich dark brown from a bottle, some lacing. Nice sweet caramel and toffee aroma, light oak. Flavor is big dark candi sugar, some caramel but leaning toward cola, maybe more like a birch beer with some vanilla notes. It's not exactly those things, it's like those things. Pretty good beer.

Аромат карамели и немного солода. Вкус слишком приторный, очень сладкий с легкой неприятной горечью. Чувствуется карамель в послевкусие. Но в общем пиво меня разочаровало.

Wonderful dark, semi sweet, butterscotch cream. Feels like candy on the lips and nose. Very smooth.

Full bodied rich taste. Lots of malt both in taste and aroma. Wooden notes.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 At Cambrinus, Bruges. Pours cloudy dark brown with a foamy, tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains butterscotch, chocolate, sugar, malt, vanilla, some spices and hops. It tastes heavy to medium sweet (caramel and vanilla) and light to medium spicy bitter. That bitterness balances out an appearing cloying sweetness. Medium body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. A great dessert beer, I like this a lot! Too bad the style is not more popular in Belgium.
