fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bouteille de 500 ml. Dguste le 23 fvrier 2011 (thistle). Bire brune fonce opaque. Mousse assez, col moyen beige crme, assez persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur faible de bois brl, de chocolat noir. Douce, trs sucre, trs amre en finale. Got de cerises, de raisins noirs, de prunes (fruits murs). Un peu fade et plutt sirupeuse. Amertume un peu force, pas en harmonie avec lensemble. Alcool ne ressort pas trop. Manque de style, plutt unidimensionnelle. Na pas le style scotch ale traditionnel. Manque de corps, trop mince.

obguthr (6242) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Meaty roast beef and garbanzo nose, raisin accents. Clear rust, medium yellow head with poor retention and little glass adherence.Vinegar, wood, and currants initially. There is an extremely brief appearance of caramel. Finishes with a nice wisp of smoke and tobacco. Fizzy. Transitions are much too quick and spirited away by harsh carbonation.

AlainG (2202) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
Bire brune aux reflets rouge, un col mousseux digne de mention flotte sa surface, tout en tapissant, littralement, les parois du verre dune dentelle tisse serre. Du caramel, du malt et des armes boiss volent jusquau nez. Sont got est tout aussi bien garni. Des herbes entre autre, du caramel cossais (toffee), du houblon et de lalcool font partie des saveurs. La bouche est bien ronde, sauf quil y a des courants plus mince qui font irruption de temps autre. Elle fait bien son travail. (345-110912)

phaleslu (10018) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 500 ml bottle from Thorpe429- thanks again, Mike! Pours a deep, not quite opaque brown with some red highlights around the sides and a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, dark and dried fruits, wood, peat, and tobacco. Flavor of caramel malts, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, peat, dried fruits, and a lingering tobacco note. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel that gives way to that lingering toasty tobacco note. Good stuff. Way underrated.

robinvboyer (4493) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012
Bready, fruity, malty, and quite a bit of caramel. Watery, low carb, and quite a bit of bitter cocoa. Medium bitterness, dry finish.

SlovakSniper (5529) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
(50 cl) Un petit col de mousse flotte sur un liquide brun. Au nez, les malts caramliss sont peu expressifs tandis que les parfums fruits saccrochent avec une certaine gne. Des effluves dherbes mouilles finissent par agacer les narines. Au got, la douceur du caramel simpose difficilement, lalcool se rpand avec subtilit, les fruits immobiles et les traces chocolates comme une bonne surprise. En bouche, le liquide est plutt mince pour le style. Le ptillement est normal et la texture crmeuse. La finale est malte, plutt douce et subitement chaude.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2011
500 mL bottle. Dark, clear, cola brown with a medium beige head. Looks good! Aroma, not so much. Its got that vegetal thing going on that you find in several of the lesser Quebec micros. From the flavour, it would be hard to tell that this is supposed to be a Scotch Ale. Nothing off, really. Its just sweet caramel and a touch of booze.

Bire trouble couleur de mlasse coiffe dun fin col crme. Des armes boiss de fruits confits, dalcool et de cuir... Moyennement amre avec un peu de sucre rsiduel. En bouche, on remarque la rondeur et leffervescence persistante. Elle offre une fin thre, sucre et aromatique.
