Texturée, aux forts goûts de malts caramélisés et subtilement fumée, la Carrick rend hommage aux délicieux wiskys écossais, qui tirent un goût particulier de la tourbe avec laquelle leurs malts sont fumés.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, - JUN 1, 2014
Dégustée (bouteille) le 1er mars 2014 lors de la Cuvée d’Hiver 2014 à Montréal. Bière brune foncée. Peu effervescente, col blanc épais et persistant. Odeur de caramel et de toffee. Très douce, très sucrée, peu amère. Saveur de sucre, de toffee léger. Très bonne mais manque un peu de pep, un peu fade à part le sucre.

Happy to be drinking this as it seems a rarer style for Canadian breweries. The body is a nice clear dark red but also had a lot of floating sediment. Yes, clear with sediment. I should also mention that my bottle is 9.25%ABV. From the lovely lace-leaving tan head comes notes of chocolate, toasted walnuts, vanilla, almonds, a light wood and smokey whiskey aroma as well. It’s got a nice slick body to it and is well balanced, a tad on the sweet side and great for the style. It’s a little boozy but such a trait I find welcome in this style. The finish leaves a nice dry smokey flavour. A nice treat for those who enjoy the style.

How: Sample at Festival Brassicole de la Mauricie.

>>> A surprisingly thin Scotch Ale with a mild but weird acidic presence. Maybe a bad bottle, I will need to revisit.

+ Interesting smokey, bordeline salty, notes
The body is surprisingly thin for a Scotch Ale, not much sweetness or malt action
There’s a mild but weird acidic presence
Because of the thin body, there’s not much backbone to support the flavors and the beer seems unbalanced.

Flavors: Smokey, earthy/mineral, herbal, caramel (mild), acidic

Bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with medium tan head. Caramel, and slight smokey after taste. Not bad.

En Fût à L’Autre Œil. Caramel aux accents de butterscotch avec jujube, mélasse et petit fumé en attaque, suivi d’une finale terreuse. Bonne scotch ale mais j’en ai bu de meilleures.

punkska101 (1560) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
500 ml bottle from flaveurs d’ici A: dark caramel, red fruits, light smokiness app: clear dark copper thick white head and great lacing. T/p: full body with moderate long bitter finish soft to moderate carbonation . O: good. Enjoyed the malt bill. Initially the smokiness struck me but after a few sip it feels more blended. Pretty balanced. I usually prefer my scotch ale on the sweet side.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Couleur brune foncé avec des reflets rouges et une mousse très belle et résistante. Au nez une Scotch ale assez typique, du caramel et des notes fumées. En bouche c’est un peu plus complexe, le caramel est toujours aussi présent, des notes de whisky sous l’assistance du malt fumées viennent accompagné. Corps moyen a élevé. Carbonation moyenne. Une bonne scotch ale a boire lentement.
