Bouteille 341 ml. 8.2%. Couleur brune avec reflets rougeâtre. Arôme de caramel et de malt grillé. En bouche, douce avec des notes de caramel, céréale sucrée...bien balancée. Finale sucrée et très douce. Très bonne Scotch Ale bien blancée et pas trop sucrée.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2010
341ml bottle from Peluso..
Appearance : Deep majhogany with small creamy head that is short lived.
Aroma : Sweet caramel with notes of raisins and red fruits.
Taste : Sweet and sugary. Some raisins and prunes. Finish is rather dry with sweet caramel and raisins.
Overall : Enjoyable sweetness on nose and tase. Quite rich. Nice dry finish. I like it much more than it’s old Bieropholie counterpart.

neuromatt (1139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
341 mL bottle from Dépanneur Simon Anthony in Montréal, served in a snifter. Pours clear reddish brown with a small tan head. The head fades quickly to a thin remnant but leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, the aroma is sweet, with notes of caramel, brown sugar, raisins, chocolate, roasted malts, alcohol and herbs. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout, with a bit of alcohol poking through. The finish is malty but relatively short. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and slight carbonation. Overall, this is a nice scotch ale. The malts are well done, but could be a bit more complex. The mouthfeel could also be a bit thicker, but it is a very pleasant beer. 2010-09-10

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle, 8.2%. Vinous aroma, some vanilla. Clear dark brown colour, red shine. The flavour is sweet and vinous. A bit too sweet, I guess, but attempted balanced by the alcohol. Quite roasted flavour also, and roasted finish.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2013 pours almost clear light brown, red tint, with a light beige head, some retention and lacing. burnt caramelized bananas, ripened dark fruits, belgiumness (!), some sweetness - never cloying. average to moderate carbonation, light to medium - slightly thin, grassy-spicy finish. enjoyable.

DerWeg (1493) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Coppery and fairly dark clear look with flashing gold highlights. Very tan fine head. Aroma alcohol (warm) and dark and dried fruit and hints earthy malty character (soil, underbrush, sweet mushrooms). Taste directly sweet but delicious with honey-toffee malts and dark fruits, Honestly a bit straightforward, since some ’wee heavy’ manages to be a bit mysterious and beguiling with more mineral to it, but the raisiny taste of this beer is just beautiful. Man remember when the beer we drank was shit?? Life has gotten better!
