Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with orange tint, big but fizzy light brown colored head, spray of lace trailed down the glass. Smell: pear, red grape, brown sugar and bread notes, slightly peppery. Taste: brown sugar, peach and orange notes, brown bread, spicy, into a peach skin finish. Light upfront for the style into fluffy feel, quick on the tongue but easy drinking. Tasty.

Complex flavors a bit weird for a scotch ale. But good!

Uniquely fruity with cherryy hints perhaps. Interesting.

From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This large bottle (25+ floz) deserve a series of appraisles. Quite cold, so I expect it to open up, it has a goodly amount of headwith a deep brown opaque look. The aroma is negligable due to the chill. The flavor is deep & rich. Raisiny.

AS time goes by the back half o f the bottle yields a much richer flavor & texture. This is a fine beer. Not the usual Belgian nor the usual spiced winter warme, just a good solid cold weather brew that needs to be barely chilled.

Colour is between red en light brown. Bittersweet taste with some plum and raisin details. Good beer, but not d'Achouffes greatest work though.
