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. Light gusher. Dark brown pour with creamy off white head. Aroma of cherries, grapes and chocolate, lots of chocolate actually, some light honey notes. Taste of dark fruits, cherries, plums, grapes, honey. Body is a bit watery but carbonation is fine.

Bière en bouteille de 500ml de style écossaise au miel à 10.8%. Cette bière opaque d’un rouge foncée n’a pas vraiment de col mousseux. Au nez on peu sentir les fruits confis (prunes et raisins) ainsi qu’un malt caramel. On peut déjà percevoir que la bière va être sucré. En bouche le caramel et le miel sucré prennent le dessus. L’arrière goût ne demeure pas très longtemps en bouche. J’ai adoré cette bière que j’ai dégusté dans verre ballon à une température de 10 degré environ. Je recommande cette bière.

Dégustée en fût en side-by-side avec la version bourbon. Voire cette dernière pour mon appréciation complète.

biirusaikou (2332) - - JAN 11, 2016
Draught at Bilboquet. Rich dark malt, honey, toasted bread, scotch, nuts, gentle sweet finish. Very solid brew with little trace of alcohol, would recommend hunting the barrel-aged version though.

Gluepot (374) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Thick, rich and decadent - this is a beast of a Scotch Ale (actually an imperial, if that is an actual category. Pumping up the alcohol and ingredient list has made this into a Canadian classic. A backbone of very roasty malt supports a super rich taste profile. Thick toffee, dark berries, booze, butter and a hint of chocolate are brought into an extravagant but successful balance. Taste sustains and stays in balance. Not for everyone, but quite an accomplishment!
