Marheb (5553) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 22, 2017
(Une bouteille Craft Beer Cellar Eagle Rock): Jamais jai got une bire qui se rapprochait autant de la tire Sainte-Catherine. Cest trs oxyd, sirupeux et cendr.

330 ml bottle. Identical to Coke colour pour with no head. Low to medium carbonation. Aroma: cherry, caramel, dark malts & fruits. Taste: caramel, sweet red wine, cherry, a hint of weak hops. Some sort of Mrzenbier or something. :)

hrabren (1131) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 5, 2017

sudomorph (1133) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby mahogany with a thin head than fades to a ring. Aroma has notes of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, slight alcohol, and is mildly woody. Taste is balanced well with notes of non-sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and a bit more of that woodiness. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a fuller, more robust mouth feel and a mildly dry finish. Overall pretty tasty with a solid malt forward flavour.

Ktwse (4414) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours clear deep brown with low light tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, toffee, mild citrus. Taste is sweet, mild boozy. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

rauchbier (3858) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle, from Bargain Booze. Deep red brown, thin short lived off white head and good condition. Big fruity nose with hints of figs, strawberry, burnt toffee and a faint tang of citrusy orange. Soft and sweet in the mouth with figs and toffee, some earthy background bitterness and a muted mulled wine spiciness mingled with hints of orange peel. Warming finish with some berry skin bitterness and a sticky sweet toffee note lingering, some retronasal alcohol reminding you it needs sipping rather than swigging.

Voici donc un strong scotch classique, faisant partie de ce que lon appelle les "wee heavy" .. avec pourtant un petit 7,4 % au compteur .. Il ne faudra pas trop appuyer sur lacclrateur!! Signalons que dans la composition il y a de lorge de lEast Lothian... on est content pour lui. Mon exemplaire tait 4 mois avant sa date. A noter une curiosit .. sur mon exemplaire lantriorit de la brasserie est inscrite 1719, et sur ltiquette du site de ratebeer en 1799 il faudrait choisir!! Mais ceci ne va aucunement gner notre dgustation Couleur auburn, et roux en transparence, la clart nette. Bulles fines, par centaines en fontaine centrale, trs vives. Mousse qui est un nappage soyeux beige. Armes de baies rouges, malt cara, bruyre, pointe dairelles. 1re bouche souple la trs belle entame, lgante, avec des baies varies. Arrire-bouche trs soft, longue, fine. 2me aux trs belles nuances fines, sans aucune agressivit. Arrire-bouche avec beaucoup de personnalit. 3me avec une trs grande fusion du malt et des baies. Arrire-bouche quasi langoureuse. Longueur qui prcise les moindres recoins, un peu comme une balade en bord de mer en longeant toutes les criques. Jambes lisses, longues. Levure trs fine, avec une touche boise, trs belle ligne. Alcool parfaitement intgr au droul des saveurs, comme un long fleuve tranquille. Finale suave. CONCLUSION: une bire loppos de limage que reprsente le "chardon" cossais, toute en douceur, beaut et lgance. On ne sattendait pas cela non plus pour une "heavy" Bref chardon et heavy ne lui vont pas .. mais on sen moque avec pareilles saveurs angliques!!! Je dirais donc que ce nest pas une wee heavy, mais une see heavenly ...

Hooray! I loved the flavour of this ale and it was one of the best beers Ive had this year. Would definitely make this a staple purchase.
