A nice, different scotch ale. Pours a beautiful deep red with a white head. Smells of wine and port with some cherries. Taste starts with a lot of wine, followed by a hint of bourbon, and a slightly tart cherry that lingers in the aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

Bottle at PIB, pours a dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of caramel malt upfront, with a subtle touch of port barrels. Flavour is full-bodied bringing out some slightly tart dark fruits, a little toffee, and some tart port wine. The tartest of the Scotch de Silly beers. Drinkable, but not the most elegant.

Bière qui est une scottish style ale aged in port wine barrels, édition limitée 2013, en 75 cl bouchonnée, titrant à 9 % abv. Couleur brun roux. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes par centaines vives. Mousse beige caramel bien crémeuse en gros nappage de 8 mm. Arômes de bourbon, miel, reine claude, bois de fût, malt caramel. 1ère bouche soyeuse à grosse entame maltée avec du bois de fût. Arrière-bouche où on trouve pour la première fois le porto, sur un beau registre. 2ème bouche où le vin est bien présent, sur un fond malté dense, avec une pointe de whisky. 3ème avec un porto de qualité, plutôt de style tawny. Arrière-bouche riche et complexe. La longueur apporte des nuances assez incroyables, allant parfois vers les vins rouges de grand cru. La levure est d’une grande veine, un peu muscadée. L’alcool est parfaitement progressif, et comme on a 75 cl au programme, ce n’est pas triste... La finale est un grand moment de brasserie, en découverte constante. CONCLUSION : une bière qui se révèle pleinement sur la longueur. On dirait en d’autres circonstances « à la réflexion ». Grand mûrissement je dirais, plutôt que grande bière (ma cotation du scotch classique, non mûri, est à 4,4...), mais la dégustation se passant dans la bouche, et non dans l’analyse, on ne peut pas trop faire la distinction entre ce qui est du fût et ce qui est de la bière !! Dans ce cas-ci, c’est une chance pour le brasseur !! Mais je la recommande et j’en recommande ...

Pours deep mahogany into a thistle. Tan micro head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Caramel, toffee, vanilla and grape aromas. Dark caramel and mildly tart cherry front to back. Warming bitter earth finish.

Sample at Hopfest 2014. Comes a dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and wood. Taste is malt, port, tart fruit, caramel, and wood. A nice surprise.

From notes. 750 mL bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is a dark reddish color with a thin tan head and some light lace. The aroma is surprisingly sour for a Scotch ale. There is a nice malt character but it is really overshadowed by the sourness and a medium booziness. The flavor is a little sweeter than the aroma leads on, but still possesses a strong sourness. There is also a strange booziness from the port barrel which would explain the sour grapey dominance. The mouth feel is a little thin, but the carbonation fails to thicken it up. The aftertaste is a bit dry and nicely finished

750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark amber with no head. Dark berry aroma with treacle and smoke. Med body or nearly. Flavor is treacle, port/berry, very light smoke. Nice drink.

marcus (6493) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours murky brown with a modest tan head and a brown sugar aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that is both sweet and smoky. Lots of molasses with a hint of port.
