Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2007
At brewpub, aged one year. Dark mahogany body with a medium tan head. Toffee and figs taste abounds in a surprisingly soft body. More and more raisins flavour as it warms up. A lot of roasted flavours even leading to an ashes sensation in the finish. Subtle citrusy tartness increases drinkability. Definitely not the heavy filling type of Scotch Ale. Not a lot of brown sugar and thick toffee usually present in high gravity Scotch Ales. This one is deceptively easy to drink. As far as Quebec Scotch Ales are concerned, only a bottle of Corne de Brume can top that. Among brewpub Scotch Ales the Reyne Descosse is the Boss des Bcosses.

Draught. Thanks so much to the brewer for sharing this rarity! Deep ruby-garnet body with an airy eggshell-yellow head. Smells fantastic - caramel and smoked malt prevail along with some burnt chocolate and yeast. Chewy caramel, roasty malts, rich bitter chocolate, and faint alcohol flavours. Low carbonation. Layered, full body. I really enjoyed this as others seem to have expressed on this panel, and to think the brewer doesn’t even deem it acceptable for public release yet!

12 oz draught at the brewpub in the company of Goldorak and MDS, served gratis by brewer Nicholas. This is the 2nd batch, which he hasnt put on yet, but if you ask me its set to go. Pours a very nearly opaque maple to dark brown with an everlasting small-to-medium darkish tan head....gorgeous thick, caramelly aroma with faint smoky wisps, vanilla, a center of the richest chocolate-caramel nougat and odd hints of coconut, totally decadent....and on the tongue, it doesnt disappoint, with a plummy oak-vanilla texture permeating the tasting, overlaid by caramel and milk chocolate, a faint vinous tartness....as it warms, acrid smoky peaches (yes that sounds weird I know but thats what it seemed like) emerge in the nose, making even more complexity of an already wonderful treat.....a touch too much acidity at the finish and perhaps slightly too little carbonation which makes for a bit of doughiness, but this is in any case spectacular and if Nicholas thinks it will be better in a month, count me in for returning for more. Bravo!

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
A dark crimson shade that was hard for me to focus in on, the lights were darker than usual...Anyway, it wasnt quite opaque but almost, with a frothy head that held its own nicely.
Toasted walnuts, hops were fruity and the alcohol finish was light, with a tiny bit of that corky, aged aroma that was subdued enough to be quite pleasing.
My first sip surprised me with its silken, lacy smoothness, the carbonation almost absent. A very mellow sherry/Madeirized flavor that mingles well with the solid chunk of caramel malt and pretty much cancels out any lingering alcoholic vapors or unpleasant tannins. Bitterness is almost inexistent, the finish is delightfully sweet yet not cloying at all, it was a pleasure to drink from start to finish. This Beer really hit all the right buttons for me. Nicolas, the brewmaster, procrastinated for months before releasing it (9 to be exact), but it was sure worth it, kudos to him.

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2006
[ Draught at the brewpub ; chilled ]
A mostly lasting small fizzy tan head that tops up a hazy dark mahogany body. Moderate lacing. Few thin particules. Few medium bubbles Aroma presents malt being very rich and heavy toasted/nutty chocolaty and rich, tawny like alcohol ...while hops are light. Yeast character is fruitiness..a vast array of fruits.. figs, dates, berry.. plum prune and cherry/raspberry. Initial flavor is moderate but very rich malt character, while development tends to lean of a more alcoholic background. Finish is long and warming. medium body... oily texture... Lively carbonation... Wonderful scotch ale.

Dark mahogany color, with some reddish highlights, shy tan-colored head, with a nice sweet burnt caramel nose, nutty, sweet roasted caramel malt, spicy brown sugar, dark candied fruits aroma follows through a rich medium to full-bodied palate with a sweet caramel malt, touch of butterscotch, nutty, nice chocolatey pralines character, toasted malt, treacle and molasses accent, toffeeish note, leading towards a sweet malty fruitiness, and alcoholic warmth finish.

Pours a gorgeous dark brown and mahogany color in a tulip glass. To this rich aroma of caramel, toffee and chocolate, you can not resist to the invitation of undressing it a little more. Once you go a little further and you bring it to your lips you can admire all its complexity; everything is well balanced! You assist to a harmonious tango between sweet malt, warming alcohol, caramel, toffee and chocolate. It felt a little more attenuated then most Scotch Ale I had but it brings more complexity as it exhibits all the subtle elements that would usually be hidden behind decadent malt. The bad news is this batch is almost over and I will not have the chance to try it before next year!
