   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
tom10101 (4006) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
On tap @ Brouemont.

Appearance: Slightly hazy nutty brown with a small beige head and little lacing.

Aroma: Toffee, caramel candies, quite sugary but not rich, light fruitiness (raisins, dates, figs) and light toasted notes.

Taste: Quite sweet and cloying with sugary caramelized apples, toffee, raisins, figs and light toasted malt.

Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Sticky sugary finish with a bit of alcohol.

Overall: Way too sugary for my liking. Unbalanced and not easy to drink even for the style. Cloying. Not much malt depth or complexity despite all the sugars.

JulienHuxley (4317) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Opaque deep copper pour with thin white foam. Aroma is intensely malty, rich butterscotch, light toasted notes, raisins, dates, licorice. Taste is sweet, slightly cloying, lots of brown sugar, light maple. Palate is full bodied with light-med carbonation. Nice for a fan of really sticky ales, but I found it a bit too sweet.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2011
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée-rouge foncée et légèrement voilée. Nez malté de caramel sucré avec des notes de toffee et de rôti, légèrement fruité (raisins, léger de prunes) avec des traces de chocolat, de houblon herbeux et d’alcool doux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture aux notes sirupeuses. Goût moyennement fruité (raisins sucrés aux petites notes vineuses, notes de prunes, traces de cerises) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel sucré et légèrement rôti ainsi qu’avec des notes de pain et de toffee puis en finale l‘on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux ainsi que des notes d’alcool doux. Post-goût moyen-long, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux, léger de rôti, léger de fruits (moût de raisins) et des notes d’alcool, (automne 2006)

claudeius (17) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2010
Dark, smooth and a bit sweet A bit of stout by the end, served a bit cold at once, but once it reaches room temp, all its qualities explode and fill your senses

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
Dark brown body with a small beige head. Toffee on the nose. Taste is full of thick caramel and brown sugar. Syrupy body. Obviously very sweet. Maybe a bit too sweet for me but I make that same comment about most scotch-ales. This one was more hopped than usual for the style and that was a welcomed diversion. Nice green grassy and leafy hops. I couldn’t ask for a better Scotch Ale from Brouemont. Although to be fair the main reason for that is that I cannot ask for another Scotch Ale from Brouemont.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
Couleur rouge-rubis foncé, mousse compacte assez généreuse, claire. Arôme vineux, balsamique, réglisse, vanille. Très aigre, malt torréfié, légèrement amer, bien soutenue en alcool. Finale longue légèrement en alcool. Belle texture, pleine. Effervescence faible. Très bon.

rederic (3211) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2007
Dark mahogany-chestnut color, with a beige head, but falling quickly, sweet toasted and caramelized malt nose, with some candied dark fruit of sultanas, plums, with a faint chocolatey note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a matly, bready, fruity character, with a chocolatey accent, with a plumy, raisiny mellow mouthfeel sweetness, and toffeeish, leading towards a lingering toasty-like fruitiness, and with an alcoholic warmth finish.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Sampled draught at the Mondial de la Bière, 2006. Very dark, hazy chestnut with a touch of lasting head and fine lacing....smoky, licorice-infused nutty-malty aromas, a bit acidic, lightly caramelized malts become hugely sweet and sugary with warmth....on the tongue, lots of interesting herbal/earthy currents, mineralic tones and a fairly dry overall profile for the style....still, it’s very full and rich, never syrupy despite the quite low carbonation, moderately sweet up till the dryish and lightly bitter finish....a bit of root beer/barky character makes this a very complex, inventive and atypical Scotch ale. I can’t say I’d want it every time I reach for the style, but I appreciate and applaud the effort.

heemer77 (5186) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Sampled at Mondial 2006. Very dark brown body that is near copper. A light khaki head on top. The aroma is apple and smoke with some sweet wood and a little bit of toffee. The taste is smoky old toffee and caramel. There is also some maraschino cherries.
