Very dark sparkling ruby color with a decent brownish head. Fresh sweet malty nose with an upstart brown sugar presence. Light touches of dark fruit and a light alcohol feathering also in the nose. LIght spritz at the beginning leads to a quick sweet malt body. Bitterness adds to the body in the middle with a firm alcohol kick also making itself known. Finished lightly bitter and just a tad thin and sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 Everything about this beer speaks of strength! A beautiful, rich ruby red with a strong and fresh aroma that mixed hops and a touch of sweetness.Not much of a head, but a pile of flavour - hops, malt, caramel and even a hint of smokiness. This is a strong ale that goes down easy with a pleasantly full, but not overpowering aftertaste. Instantly, it has become one of my favourites - and since the LCBO only stocks it for a short time, Iím off to the store to stock up.

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO, part of Fall beer selection. Tasted in a dimpled mug. Appearance is deep copper red, thin white head. Aroma is faint, with a hint of sweetness and alcohol. Flavour favours the sweet / malty side, fairly upfront alcohol in the taste, hint of smokiness and finishes with a slight hoppy note.

This was a delightful treasure from the weekend. Malty, with very little, if any, hop aroma. Very, very sweet... Alcohol was apparent, and the flavours were long-lasting.

Hoppy like Scotch, and full rich taste, like prune and fig and carmel and chestnut brown colour. Good hops. Good Autumn beer. Was medium on mouthfeel, almost like it was on-tap I think attesting to freshness. Some peatiness.

Bright, clear-ish chestnut. Fine finger of beige foam. Sweet (caramel), toasty, nutty, & mildly smokey aroma w/ light spicy, earthy notes. Full, oily feel. Sweet, toasty, malty flavour of caramel, molasses, brown sugar & nuts.

Pours a dark burgundy with tons of bubbles. Off white largely dissipating head -- quite lasting. Initial smell of apple juice, caramel, quite floral on top of the quite present alcohol. Taste is unlike anything Iíve had. hits completely different places on my tongue for beer sweet malts, whisky?, ginger, toffee and smoke. Interesting!

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2004
Came in the 500ml bottle...pours an impressive dark copper with crimson highlights.Nice creamy-sticky tan cap that lasts. Lightly carbonated. Aroma is heavenly...sweet mustiness with spicey-woody tones. Mouth feel is slick with a lovely smokey toffee and fruity tastes from the sweet malts and yeasts in a complex blend with the woody, cedar/piney hops.Finish is long and evolved as the complexity drops away to a slow drying....sweet bready after taste. A very good Scotch ale.

Nice one!!! Sweet malty aroma, with hints of molasses and caremel. Pours a dark amber body. Nice off white head with decent head. Taste is sweet, heavy caramel, malt, and some hops bitterness. Nice!! A beer to be respected indeed.

Smells of malt, toffee and caramel, clear ruby, pours a huge, thick tan head, some pretty lace too. Woody and malty flavours at first, with bitter almond in the middle, and caramel/butterscotch at the end. Rich, creamy texture, softly sweet, nice bitterness towards the finish. Terrific!
