2.83/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown, effervescent body with a small, very short-lived off-whtie head.

Smell: Basic aroma of dark caramel and a touch of fruit, all of it kinda wimpy.

Taste: Dark caramel maltiness with a slight sweetness. Hint of tart fruits. Abrupt finish; the beer ends before it really gets going.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Pretty mild, even by Scottish Ale standards. (432 characters)

Pours a clear copper color with a light beige big lasting head. Smell is bright fresh malt and maybe a faint hint of smoke? Taste is faintly tart, and hoppy for the style. Thin malt flavor and a light smokiness in the background. Hoppy and light smokiness make this nice and unique version but the body and flavor otherwise is a touch on the thin side. Still pretty decent overall. (420 characters)

3.58/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep amber in color, fairly clear, with a large white head, which retains well, and profuse carbonation.

Aroma: Fruity esters are quite prominent, with a bready malt character, and candy sweetness, and notable spiciness.

Taste: Spicy bubblegum notes at the open, as would be expected from a Belgian ale, quite malty throughout. The finish is dominated by spicy notes, dark fruit, alcohol, and a lingering mild bitterness. There is none of the earthy characteristic commonly fould in Scottish ales.

Mouth feel: Smooth and very full, with an almost syrupy presence.

Drinkabililty/notes: Rather off-style, but still interesting and quite pleasing. The Belgian characteristics may result in part from yeast selection.

Many thanks to HardTarget for sharing this unique beer. (796 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Bottle Inspection: Very basic label on a brown bomber. No abv, date, nothing.

Aroma: Strong fruity esters with some slight smoke and a touch of celery.

Appearance: Strong carbonation streams feed an overly large head of tan that tops an amber glass.

Flavor: Bubble gum? Very Belgian in flavor with some nice malty notes, but no peat characteristics noted.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation level is too high.

Overall Impression: A very tasty beer. The Belgian notes take it out of style, but I really enjoyed the flavor. I’d drink more! (541 characters)
