COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is different than the Bieropholie version as it has a different yeast and hops. It has also some difference through the fermentation process. The malts and the honey are not exactly the same. And, of course, this one has less alcohol. They have the same type of aromas, but some esters are really not the same.

Bottle @ RBWG. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Heavy sugar, toffee, somewhat oxidized aroma. Low carbonation. Brown sugar. Cardboard. Old. Thanks Mike!

Brune opaque aux reflets discrets d’acajou, une abondante mousse moelleuse se dresse au-dessus du liquide et y demeure longuement. Un nez enivrant de miel, de sucre brun et d’alcool domine les douces effluves florales qui adoucissent le bouquet. Bien maltée et bien ronde en bouche, le taux d’alcool élevé est bien présent mais ne prend pas le dessus sur les autres saveurs de miel et de caramel écossais. Une certaine amertume donne un ’’ kick ’’ supplémentaire en finale. La meilleure scotch ale au Québec à mon avis, final bâton.

Bottle. We were worried because this was a slow gusher after the pop of the cap. Deep amber color with a ton of head. Ok, in the clear, no infection but I believe this is an old bottle. Nose of malted wheat, caramel and edible flowers. Toffee and toasted caramel malts, traces of honey and a slightly off flavor. Nothing real terrible. The flavor is real sweet on the borderline of cloying. Body is medium with a sweet sticky texture.

dandeman (826) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Évaluation no. 71 Février 2011. De couleur brune avec une mousse très abondante et persistante. Un nez avec du miel partout, de la banane et des accents de malt. En bouche, elle présente une attaque bien sentie de miel et de bananes. L’alcool est bien balancé avec le reste mais reste persistant un peu trop en finale. Une bière très fruitée, sucrée, qui aurait du nous offrir un peu plus d’amertume, surtout de torréfaction. Reste néanmoins une excellente bière.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Couleur brune avec des reflets rouge avec un mince col beige très résistant. Nez complexes de malt grillés,de bois,de miel,d’alcool et de sucre. En bouche c’est autant complexes les saveurs sont pratiquement identique au nez, c’est très bien balancé et le 10.8% ne parais vraiment pas. Une bière de dégustation lente, elle est excellente mais dispendieuse un peu!

Has a redish color. In mouth, it really is a Scottish style beer and it leaves a nice honey taste that kicks.... out of nowhere.

Honey Scotch Ale served in a small snifter. Very dark reddish amber with a fairly good, durable, light brown head. Wonderful aroma, suggestive of a fine Belgian dark ale. Very fruity, with dark ripe fruit including dates, figs, raisins. Only a light touch of peat smoke. A tad too sweet? True to style? Not really. Rather sweet for one thing and too fruity. But very tasty and enjoyable. Just leave your preconceptions behind.
