On tap at Yonge Street, Toronto location. Nice dark brown colour with slightly sweet malty chocolate aroma. Taste is much of the same. Quite a pleasant flavour without the harsh bitterness sometimes associated with roasted malts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Les 3 Brasseurs Laurier. Clear amber-ish brown with a small mostly lasting beige head and little lacing. Aroma is light but interesting with a nutty presence, mineral notes, light resinous and citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma with the mineral/earthy presence being a little more presence. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Clean and a tad roasty finish. Contrary to the name of the beer, it’s not a Scotch Ale and contrary to the listed style, this isn’t a Stout. It’s a pretty decent drinkable Brown Ale though.

Veldig fruktig aroma, er det en frukt øl? Bitter malt smak og fremdeles ganske fruktighet toner. Bitter sjokolade?

On tap at L3B in Toronto .. this was just OK .. though better than the amber. It lists on here as a stout but found it to be a roast, malty with cocoa notes dunkel. Overall, OK .. not sure if I would go looking for this beer

Tasted as part of a sampler flight at one of the Montreal locations. I won’t go into specifics on this particular beer because I was disappointed equally in everything that was tasted at this place.

Pours a clean copper colour with a small beige head with minimal lacing. Fruity dark malt aromas with some yeast. Nice roasted malt with a little hop in the finish, adding some mild bitterness. Light molasses in the aftertaste, once it warms up. Decent brown ale with fruity notes.

Sampled at Toronto Festival of Beer. Dark brown and headless. Burnt malt aroma with caramel, dark fruit and scorched earth/sulphur. Sweet malty taste. Slick with a short, dry finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Vieux Montreal location. Well, it’s not a good start to Elgin with an identity crisis. I think this is more stoutly in character, but unfortunately a weak one. Stale coffee with a cola-like sweetness and a thin mouthfeel.
