MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, - JAN 26, 2012
Pours brown, somewhat murky. Close to no head at all. Aroma is mainly cherries with faint nose of caramel. That one has a dusty nose as well. Taste is.. yuck, seriously. The rye don’t give it a very good twist and it pretty much ends up being some kind of ethylic vineagar aromatized with sour cherries. Oddy, it just feels... watery. I’ve tasted belgian ales closer ot scotch ales than this scotch ale. Unpleasant, awful. Trying not to drain pour it.

Brune aux reflets rouges, elle a des effluves de caramel et de cerises. Mi-épaisse, elle est coiffée d’une bonne mousse couleur crème. En bouche, l’effervescence est trop importante ; après un voile de bulles sur la langue, on dénote les cerises annoncées, qui lui donne un petit goût acidulé, ainsi que des pointes de toffee. Le seigle se détecte également, rehaussant un côté rustique qui lui donne une certaine complexité. Une des meilleures de Saint-Arnould, qui réussit à la fois à être original et juste à point dans la conception. Intéressant.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
341 ml bottle. 1/3 of it exploded straight over my sink as I opened it. Starts well... Pours a clear, red-orange dark amber with a nice, resilient beige head. Smell is fruity, red cherry. Taste is burnt caramel, overripe cherry (felt quite artificial...). Finish is burnt, ash, roast. Bitterness feels unbalanced, I perceive it as way too strong, here. Some tartness, too. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Weak carbonation. Not a very good scotch ale, actually, I kept asking myself as I was drinking it "why did they label it as a scotch ale?". At least, it was not so costly...

Pours hazy light brown. Some particles. Aroma: fruits and slight caramel. Kind of subtle. Taste is vinegar, sour and unbalanced. Roasted finish. Not a good beer.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée-brune foncée et voilée. Nez malté de caramel sucré, de grains de céréales légèrement grillées, moyennement fruitées (cerises et léger de cerises sûres), léger de pain avec des traces de biscuits. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu.une texture aux notes aqueuses et huileuses. Moyen- goût fruité (léger de cerises noires, notes de cerises sûres) accompagné de faibles traces de plastique brûlé lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel ser ajotue rapidement un goût de grains de céréales aux faibles notes amères et rôties avec un léger goût de pain et de caramel puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) avec des traces d’alcool. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (moût de cerises), d’alcool très doux et quelques traces grillées.

Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours ruby-brown with a large semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, light cherry notes and cardboard. Flavour is...not good. Eesh, what is that? Metal, artificial cherry, caramel malt and light rye -- I think, it’s just not good. Only positive thing is the alcohol is completely hidden. Light bodied. Simpy awful.

Thanks to HogTownHarry. Appearance: Murky cloudy, red, tiny brown head. Aroma: Wet cardboard and cherry, malt, biscuit. Flavour: Dirty cheap synthetic Kenyan cherry cough syrup with nail polish and a hint of vomit. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341ml bottle shared with blankboy and garthicus. Deep clear red with an average frothy/creamy lasting tan head. Aroma of cherry, paper and ... medicine. Taste - sour malt and light cherry cough syrup. Thick body, harsh aftertaste. Not good.

Bouteille 341 ml. 9%. Couleur brune-rougeâtre assez foncée. Mousse blanche-beige, presque absente. Arôme de caramel fruité, alcool. En bouche, assez acide, vinaigrée-amère (mais pas le BON amère), un peu de fruits, pas de caramel, cette beer goute bizarre. Notes de seigles mais le rste est presque affreux. En fait, pas agréable à boire et je bois de la bière pour avoir du plaisir. Pas dans ce cas.
