Très mince et très aqueuse comme Scottish Ale. un léger soupçon de fumée à peine perceptible, tout en caramel mais trop peu présent, si voyez ce que je veux dire... Toutefois, pas désagréable et l’arôme de la levure RJ sied bien à cette bière.

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
Deep hazy dark brown color, with a copper hue, and a moderate amount of activity. Slightly creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of molasses, burnt caramel, ester fruits, dark berries, walnuts, faint chocolate and coffee, herbal spices and slightly earthy. Dominating sugars, not excessive, with faint bitterness. Smooth medium to full body with very sharp prickly carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, lingering a little with a sugary molassy feel, a little barrel aged, and roasted malts. Overall this is a good quality craft. A little soft and too accessible, while the flavors are pretty good and well refreshing. Probably too much carbonation, but the finish is well balanced.

Bière assez basique dans le style, sans défaut m’étant perceptible ni trait positif marquant... C’est tourbeux, minéral et aqueux surtout. Fruits rouges confits et prunes sont ce que je goûte principalement.

Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Good beer, it’s like a lighter version of the Trois-Pistoles by Unibroue. Dark coat, hoppy nose (but less fruity element than TP and more grass) and a creamy texture. It’s one of the first beers I ever reviewed back when I started tasting beer back in ’09.

Luvystypotables (1651) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Aroma of malt with a reddish brown colour and a lasting off white head. Taste of malt watery feel with a weak malt palate.

Black cherry color with a yeasty aroma. Malt and hops clash on the tongue and the hops lingers long after is pleasant.

Good scotch ale, but I wished it had a higher ABV. Lighter color than I expected, little aroma, but a good scotch taste.
