Robe brune assez opaque avec de minces reflets noisettes. Léger col de mousse beige, dentelle huileuse. Arômes de mélasse, miel et alcool en premier temps. Suivent les petits fruits: cerise noire, framboise, mûre, raisins rouges. Bref, on dirait un porto. Le tout dans une enveloppe mielleuse et où les effluves de chêne se dégagent tranquillement sans pour autant prendre trop de place. On est près de la MacKroken originale, sauf ce petit côté boisé qui s’intègre à merveille aux saveurs. En bouche, prédominance de sucre brun et miel. Le chêne fait son entré rapidement en même temps que s’installent des saveurs de raisins et cerises noires. Légères traces de chocolat au lait et noisettes. Fond alcoolisé mais ce n’est aucunement désagréable. Finale plus amère de pelures de raisins et de bois. Texture moyennement onctueuse et corps très rond. Fine et faible carbonatation. Belle variante de ce produit. Les saveurs de la scotch ale ne sont pas reléguées au second plan au détriment du vieillissement en fût de chêne. Un peu chère par contre mais la qualité du breuvage nous le fait un peu oublier.

Aroma is apple, honey, wine, dark fruit and light funk and clove. Taste is sweet malts, dark fruit malts and yeast. Appearance is hazy amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. Some medium sediment in suspension.

750 bottle purchased at Marche Jovi in Gatineau, Quebec. Deep brown in colour with a long lasting beige head, good lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, fruit, some sweetness, light smoke. The flavour is quite sweet, woody, lots of dark fruits, some chocolate, malty. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, woody. This is a confusing beer for me. Quite sweet and rather thin.

750 mL bottle. I left this one in the cellar a bit too long. Just a bit past its prime. Still better than most, though. Oak, malt, spice. Lost all of its edges, though.

Bottle shared with friends on a cold winter night. Pour is murky brown with a frothy tan head. Nose is warm and cozy: oak, dark caramel/burnt sugar, vanilla, honey, plums, raisins, spice. Taste is sweet, fairly syrupy, but not cloying, and the alcohol is well balanced and hidden. Drinks like port-light, or a dessert wine. Great for sharing.
