75 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 30.04.2016.
Pours clear dark mahogany red color with a small head. Aroma is ripe with fruits, caramel and toasted malts, faint syrup, oak and wood. Wood and toffee on the flavor, honey is quite subtle but noticeable, some syrup and dark bread, distant nut notes. Sweet, dry and refined. Nice.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
750 bottle purchased at Marche Jovi in Gatineau, Quebec. Deep brown in colour with a long lasting beige head, good lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, fruit, some sweetness, light smoke. The flavour is quite sweet, woody, lots of dark fruits, some chocolate, malty. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, woody. This is a confusing beer for me. Quite sweet and rather thin.

Bawelt (691) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 16, 2017
Nez : caramel, un peu bourbon, un fond de chêne. Bouche assez éthylique mais reste assez douce, sirupeuse, assez noble et bien vieillie. Très caramélisée, épicée. Longueur assez madère.

Bottle from SlovakSniper. Thanks! Caramel and dark fruit aroma. Bourbon too. Sweet sweet honey taste. Some caramel and dark fruits and spice. A touch too sweet, but still good.

Aroma is apple, honey, wine, dark fruit and light funk and clove. Taste is sweet malts, dark fruit malts and yeast. Appearance is hazy amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. Some medium sediment in suspension.

Stoned99 (1419) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
750ml bottle shared with Guillaume. Thanks Guillaume. Aroma: honey, strong alcohol, woody, dark red fruits. App: murky brown, no head. Taste and palate: medium body, a tad oily, liquoreux, medium high sweetness, soft carbonation, alcohol burning finish. Overall: pretty good. Really liquoreux. Body could be bigger but maybe it would be less easy to drink. This one is fairly easy to drink considering its abv. Still something to share though. Glad my brother shared it with me. A great liquor.

Franckg (1393) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
Robe brune assez opaque avec de minces reflets noisettes. Léger col de mousse beige, dentelle huileuse. Arômes de mélasse, miel et alcool en premier temps. Suivent les petits fruits: cerise noire, framboise, mûre, raisins rouges. Bref, on dirait un porto. Le tout dans une enveloppe mielleuse et où les effluves de chêne se dégagent tranquillement sans pour autant prendre trop de place. On est près de la MacKroken originale, sauf ce petit côté boisé qui s’intègre à merveille aux saveurs. En bouche, prédominance de sucre brun et miel. Le chêne fait son entré rapidement en même temps que s’installent des saveurs de raisins et cerises noires. Légères traces de chocolat au lait et noisettes. Fond alcoolisé mais ce n’est aucunement désagréable. Finale plus amère de pelures de raisins et de bois. Texture moyennement onctueuse et corps très rond. Fine et faible carbonatation. Belle variante de ce produit. Les saveurs de la scotch ale ne sont pas reléguées au second plan au détriment du vieillissement en fût de chêne. Un peu chère par contre mais la qualité du breuvage nous le fait un peu oublier.
