Scotch ale, qui est plutôt une scottish ale, puisqu’elle est américaine, allez voir la différence sur ratebeer … Niveau abv de 8 %, 19,2 ° plato, et 20 ibu. Série Progeny chez ce brasseur (on est dans la science-fiction …). 3 malts : pale, crystal, peated. Houblon US Golding. Levure scottish de chez Mac Ewans. Signalons la jolie capsule au logo de la brasserie. Couleur ambre foncé à roux caramel (ne cherchez pas, c’est scottish …). Clarté nette (d’ailleurs elle n’est pas refermentée en bouteille). Bulles fines en colonnes, peu nombreuses. Mousse beige moyen, nappage fin. Arômes de malt cara, prune, figue, cerise confite, pointe de toffee. 1ère bouche souple sur un malt légèrement peated, pointe de whisky blend de basse gamme. Arrière-bouche fruitée, avec de curieuses épices, assez aqueuse. 2ème au malt tourbé, prune, pointe de figue. Arrière-bouche plus ample et assez longue. 3ème aux saveurs un peu plus fondues, mais curieuses. Arrière-bouche malt/épice, avec une pointe de kirsch. Longueur avec du malt à whisky de petite allure, épices, mais très peu d’harmonie. Jambes très lisses. Alcool correct, mais il ne peut tenir l’équilibre (sans jeu de mots). Finale très monotone. CONCLUSION : bière dont les quelques qualités sont noyées dans un côté fumé/tourbé, à la scottish de petite semaine après la guindaille ...
