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.

Arch (11) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 Aroma : Brown sugar, burnt caramel, a bit of alcohol. Appearance : Clear dark brown to red covered by a thing layer of foam that disappear quickly and leaves little lacing. Taste : Caramel, roasted malts, toffee and a faint taste of spices. Quite sweet. Slightly hoppy. Mouthfeel : A bit "vinous". Enjoyable. Overall : Not a bad Scotch Ale I enjoy from time to time. 6er isn’t too pricey either. Quite balanced.

SlovakSniper (3269) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2010
Liquide brun cuivre sous un col de mousse fugitif. Le nez retient des notes discrètes de noix et de fruits derrière des arômes fortement caramélisés. Au goût, le liquide introduit des saveurs douces et sucrées avec une présence timide de l’alcool. Enveloppant en bouche, ce scotch ale offre une finale liquoreuse aux accents torréfiés.

presario (4694) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Almost no head on dark copper-amber. Boozy caramel nose. Tone down the booze Mr. Brewmaster. A bit sour. Licorice toffee and booze. Not enough complexity to justify the ABV.

lefossoyeur (465) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2010
Dark ruby with a small brown head. Heavy nose of caramel, dried fruits, vanilla and something like "crème patissière". Full bodied palate, low carbonation, very sweet as the nose would suggest with the flavors dancing around caramel, almost sticky palate and finishes on a nice crème brulée finale. Alcohol well hidden. I could’nt drink anything else after this one. Nice wee heavy.

cfrancis (2456) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2010
Pours a dark amber with an off-white frothy head. Aroma is caramel and sweet malt. Taste is full of caramel and some malt. Somewhat one dimensional but very well balanced and good body. Real good beer.

blankboy (6197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2010
My bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o JulienHuxley. Pours a clear deep orange-amber with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma of light toasted malt with a hint of coffee and smoke. Malty flavour with a hint of smoke, a bit of coffee and some chocolate. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of medium sweet caramelized malt. Taste is somewhat one-dimensional with some caramelized malt and not much else to report. Body is above average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I thought this was pretty standard with not much characteristics. I will have to try that one again.

Eructoblaster (3080) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle - 341ml. Dark amber body with low carbonation and a thin beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with caramel and cinnamon hints. Well balanced taste carries fruity and brown sugar notes. It ends with a decent, warming, bittersweet finish. Enjoyable Scotch Ale.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 Transparent dark copper with a thick eggshell cap. Nose of smokey malts, brown sugar, dark bread, strong hops. Sweet flavour profile has burnt caramel malts, vanilla, plum, lots of bittering hops. Lenghty sweet malty finish. A bit of booze on this one.
