It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.
Ingredients: Water, pale ale malt, caramel malt, aromatic malt, sugar, yeast, Kent hop, hallertau hop.

pumpkinhead2 (514) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Bière brune aux reflets rouge-orangés, bien voilée d’une multitude de particules en suspension bien visible, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmontée d’un col couleur crème pas tellement large mais bien dense, mousseux et persistant, et qui colle sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain grillé, levure belge, cola et épices (anis, clou de girofle, muscade, poivre…), avec grains rôtis, noisette, alcool bien présent, et notes de houblon qui semble surtout herbacé et peut-être un peu citronné. Nez qui me semble un peu étrange, loin du style, complexité intéressante, intensité adéquate. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, malt surtout céréalier, pain grillé et grain moyennement rôti, avec un léger caramel qui fait très cola. Aussi, on a droit à un alcool très présent en bouche (et un peu mal intégré…) ainsi qu’à une levure belge et épicée, anis, clou de girofle et poivre se sont définitivement invités à la fête. Un houblon surtout herbacé est présent en fin de bouche amenant une amertume qui n’arrive pas vraiment à s’imposer au sein d’une finale trop alcoolisée. Belles complexité et intensité en bouche, mais intégration des différentes saveurs qui laisse un peu à désirer, et il me semble qu’on est un petit peu à côté du style. Une bonne bière, sans plus…

Hazy brown color, small off-white head. Aroma is alcohol, whiskey, barrel, oak, sugar and berries. Lots of caramel, brown sugar, alcohol is noticeable. Heavy sweetness. Thin to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Good.

- Alcoholpercentage van 8% - Smakelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Complimenten aan de brouwerij- en brouwmeester - Nog geen topper, maar wel de hoge waardering die verdiend is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
