Ungstrup (38596) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2005
[At GABF 2004] A brown beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is very sweet and fruity with a slight note of alcohol. A nice Scotch ale.

omhper (25831) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
Bottled. Clear nut brown. Appley toffee aroma. Sweet and mellow with medium body and sticky mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Warming perhaps, but it’s too cloying.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear, reddish brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma of wood and dried fruit. Very soft mouthfeel. Medium body with lots of sweetness and roasted malts, some dried fruit and some wood. Very pleasant indeed. 061006

fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at Seattle Tap Room (Sea-Tac Airport)
Brown color, dark and clean, with small creamy head. Nutty beer, full bodied: good caramel component, with moderate sweetness; the aroma is too simple, the flavor quite nice; light fruity esters complete the picture in a pleasant way; correct bitterness. Could be mistaken for a Doppelbock as it’s very clean.

mcberko (19193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at TCBF, pours dark red. Aroma and flavours of caramel, dark fruits with a lot of sweetness. Very good.

3.4
Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Very dark chestnut colour. Slightly toffeeish, slightly minty aroma. Chewy malt flavours. Some flowery accents amidst all the toffee lend character. Earthy maltiness in the finish.

"Fat Bastard Scotch Ale". Dark ruby, nut brown color, small beige head. Caramel, berries (red currant, strawberry) in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish, caramelly, fudge, some berries. Lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. Quite well in style: strong and toffeish.

Bottle - In honor of my grandfather. Pours brown white head - nose and taste of light peat smoke, caramelized bready malt and tree sap - medium body

3.6
brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Dark brown pour with a white head. Nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and toffee. Some butterscotch, vanilla, alcohol, and maybe a light nuttiness. There’s a lot of malty sweetness to the flavor. Plenty of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. Notes of vanilla, dark fruit, and chocolate. Toasted nuts, light alcohol, and a nice toast character.
