Une bière dense , opulente, pleinement savoureuse, une personnalité axée sur les multiples sucres caramélisés appuyées par quelques notes épicées. Type Wee Heavy écossaise. IBU 35.

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear deep copper with thin tan head. The aroma is rich sweet prunes, rich cherry candy, molasses, some maple and some malts. The taste begins with a pleasing rich earthiness sweetened by thick layers of prunes, cherries and sugar stewed raisins as well as a mild amount of maple. Around the edges of those notes is a mild spicy hop flavor providing a faint bitterness. Nice rich brew.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2011
341 ml bottle. Dark brown color a with thin and fast dissipearing head. Sweet aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Not very fizzy. Spices come first in the taste, then the softness of caramel, chocolate and dark fruits comes. Full bodied and smooth creamy mouthfeel. This brewery doesn’t dissapoint !

sebletitje (8008) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2011
Bouteille partagée avec Jdubfl. Couleur brune laissant quelques bulles. Arôme et palais ont tous les deux une bonne note de malt caramel laissant une pellicule de biscuit et de toffee sur le fini. Cela est accompagné de fruits noirs allant de la figue sur des notes résineuses et sucrées. Deuxième bière de cette brasserie qui ne déçoit pas.

Thanks to the Tampa crew for sharing this one. Pours clear cola brown with a white head. Nose is syrup, brown sugar, nice malt sweetness, and a bit of caramel. Flavor is similar with a great sweetness all around. Good wee heavy.

A dark amber mahoganny ale with a thin light moka head. In aroma, loads of fruity esters over caramelized burned sugar, and light cinnamon notes. In mouth, a smooth sweet chocolate with light toffee notes, a bit thin and grainy. On tap at St-Bock, Dec. 18 2010.

probstblueribbon (3350) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
341 mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep copper with an orange-tan rim. Aroma: Rich, sweet malts, stewed dark dried fruits, a little boozy, brown sugar, molasses, a touch of licorice, some esters, pretty nice. Palate: Medium+ body, somewhat sparse effervescence with a few prickly bubbles. Flav.: Lots of sticky sweet malts, a bit more booze and a bit less fruity than the nose, brown sugar, the esters are lessened, a touch meaty/savoury, not quite as enjoyable as the nose, but still decent; sweet with a touch of bitterness and some warming alcohol, wrapped in a sweet, malty finish.

neuromatt (1225) - 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
