Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée-brune foncée et claire. Nez de caramel et de grains de malt sucrés et légèrement rôtis, léger de sucre brun avec des notes de houblon herbeux et de fruits (cerises). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement sirupeuse. Goût de grains de malt sucrés, légèrement rôtis et aux faibles notes fumées et fruitées (cerises) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel sucré avec des traces de sucre brun et de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec des notes d’alcool doux réchauffant. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes rôties et d’alcool très doux. (23 janvier 2013)

Belle rousse. Odeur un peu faible mais caramel alcool. Goût un peu fumé, caramélisé, chaud et alcoolisé. Un Scotch ale acceptable.

JulienHuxley (3256) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Reddish brown pour with a thin ring of white foam. Aroma of molasses, cherries, malt and a bit of a nasty soy sauce. Taste is sweet, furity with a bit of roast bitterness and some booze. Palate is medium to heavy bodied, low carbonation. Pretty faultless, excePt for the aroma.

Sammy (8719) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub, this style is a staple of the Province. Sourish-like yeast that grows on you. The aroma is merely mly but it is complex. Very thick white lacey on dark golden body.

TEJA (1306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2010
Draught at Siboire. Small brown foam. Coca cola color. The aroma have both cherries and black currants. Good maltyness and some sweetness.

Dark brown pour with ruby highlights and a thin offwhite head. Interesting, but not captivating aroma and flavor of caramel malt with a lingering sweetess. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and soft carbonation. This is totally without flaws, but it’s average for the style.

My Bottom Line:
Fieldberries and diplomatic caramel coexist peacefully, while earthy, leafy hops gather to conclude this super clean Scotch Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam sinks into the mahogany-laced dark brown.
-The aroma is too timid for the style; a little more age might have improved it, as I think this batch (at 7.2% abv) was served quite young.
-The fruitiness also develops grape-like flavors.
-Malts also become biscuity in the middle, diversifying the flavor profile.
-This is as well brewed as all Siboire beers. This brewer is very professional and I secretly wish the quality of his execution will inspire other brewers in the Sherbrooke area.
-For this Scotch Ale to stand out in its own category, I think it would have to have a slightly longer caramel malt finish, as well as a more inviting nose.

On tap at the brewpub.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2008
Large beige head covers the hazy copper. Sugary and warming aroma despite the not too exuberant 6.5% ABV. The fruity, alcoholic and sweet flavour profile clearly belongs to a scotch ale though. Thick-bodied, soft and creamy, remarkably velvety texture. Candy reminiscent nose, not unlike Québec’s Sucre d’Orge. A texture beer really. A warming, soft and foamy presence in the mouth, concealing a earthy, slightly peaty malt base. Gentle cherry juiciness on top of red licorice complexifies the ensemble. Pleasant drinking - I love the mouthfeel.
