2011 vinatge. Pour is dark brown with a thin beige head and little lacing. Aroma of bourbon, caramel, vanilla, light anise. Taste is sweet with bourbon, vanilla, caramel, dried fruits, oak, booze. Full body, a bit over-carbonated for the style. Very good sipper.

Caramel brown with decent, creamy, tan head, light lacing / Mild nose of caramel, dark fruit, pine / Medium to full body, somewhat thin, chewy, sweet, good balance with bitter finish, and light alcohol burn / Flavors of caramel, milk chocolate, cream, date, fig / Seemingly well-meaning, with solid flavors, but somewhat thin, hot, body deflate the result.

Aroma: Brown sugar and almond Appearance Copper brown with creamy beige head Taste: I’m getting the maple and its coming through as burnt caramel. Surprisingly yeasty for a scotch ale. Overview: Not as malty as a typical scotch ale as mind blowingly good as Dieu due Ciel Aphrodite but still enjoyable

Bottle [341ml] c/o Glouglouburp. Pours a very murky , dark amber-brown with cool sediment formations and an average size diminishing fizzy tan head. Lovely aroma of bourbon, wood, caramel malt, some maple, vanilla, dark fruit and more. Flavour: Wow that’s good! (8+) Sweet and malty with a perfect amount of bourbon barrel-ageing, not overdone, along with some maple syrup and dark fruit. Alcohol is very well hidden considering the abv. Medium to full bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Awesome stuff, I knew this would be good but not this good.

Slovak you devil thank you for this! Brown maple pour, the aroma is fantastic, sweet hints of vanilla, oak, smoke and boozy bourbon. The taste does not quite live up to how good it smells, the bourbon doesn’t shine through as much as I though it would which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it does not over power the taste, that being said it doesn’t really bump up the complexity as much as I thought it would given how good it smells. Taste is very oaky, not overly rich, with subtle hint of bourbon and very clean woody finish. Good overall.

Trade from Quebec. Very good scotch ale here, a style I’m not usually that fond of. The maple syrup and barrel aging do this wonders. Aromas a strong.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
Bière couleur de noisette, plutôt opaque et coiffée d’un fine écume laissant au verre une légère dentelle. Des arômes complexes et boisés de noix, d’érable et de xérès. Elle est bien amère, avec un peu de sucre résiduel. Elle est liquoreuse, de corps robuste, finement effervescente et se termine sur une très longue finale aromatique.

Pours dark brown with a nondescript head. Aroma is bourbon and molasse. Taste is sweet with a hint of acidity (from the barrel?) to balance it out. Flavors are once again bourbon derived: salted caramel, wood, almost buttery. Mouthfeel is good and full with maybe a touch too much carbonation at first (but it settles down after a while). Alcohol is felt but well integrated. A really nice sipper, one that I will seek out again in the future!

Thanks to tommy for this bottle. Nice toasty vanilla with raisins and nuts. The bourbon is prominant and nicely balanced. Great stuff.

Rich brown pour, tan head. Flavors are really wonderful. Rich bourbon notes, toffee, maple, vanilla, golden raisins. So smooth and so tasty.
