Dark amber light beige head malt aroma sugary smooth flavours that roll off the tounge like a scotish R light roastedness and subtle bitter woody flavours... good stuff

Pours a nice deep deep red. Aroma is of malts and a little fruity. Also a little brandy-like scent. Flavor is malty and a little smokey. Some bitterness as well. Pretty good stuff.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2004
Pours a reddish brown colour with a thick tan head. Aromas of toffee, malts, rasins, and other dark fruits. The taste is of toffee rasins and a rich maltiness with a nice dry finish and a slight alcohol kick. A nice brew.

Aroma of smoked caramel malts and some dark fruits maybe too, come from this dark burgundy brown beer. Woody and sweet caramel flavours and very smokey too, right through into the dry finish.

for a while this was my favorite beer. A classic beer. Pours a dark burnt Carmel,with a big tan head,major lacing and the head just sits there.noticed a malty sweet nose on the pour. on taste:everything about this is right.malt Carmel,plums, and a touch of hops.A good solid tasting beer,absolutely refreshing and relaxing. the mouth feel is full,like red meat,with the slightest alcohol burn in the finish.great stuff.

A thin head covers this suprisingly carbonated Scottish Ale. Caramel, smokey, and sweet in palate. Overall a nice, refreshing ale made with care and served below 50 degrees.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Clear brown rum apperance. Very big beige head tops it nicely. Itís fairly mild on the nostrils, but has pretty much everything I expect from a scotch ale. Itís caramelic, butterscotchey, faintly smokey with traces of berries or melon. Leather notes on the palate, refreshing from a moderately small malt acidity. Slight vegetal oil touch. Itís well done for a beer that is mostly about caramel malt interplays. Just lighter than I expected and the thin-medium body could be fuller, especially with that rather high carbonation. Good

Dark amber in colour. Aroma was malty, some sugar, caramel and fruity. Flavour was malty, some chocolate, toffee, light smoke, slightly sweet. Medium body, high carbonation. Finishes quite dry and long.
