COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is different than the Bieropholie version as it has a different yeast and hops. It has also some difference through the fermentation process. The malts and the honey are not exactly the same. And, of course, this one has less alcohol. They have the same type of aromas, but some esters are really not the same.

Dégustée en fût en side-by-side avec la version bourbon. Voire cette dernière pour mon appréciation complète.

Draught at Bilboquet. Rich dark malt, honey, toasted bread, scotch, nuts, gentle sweet finish. Very solid brew with little trace of alcohol, would recommend hunting the barrel-aged version though.

ametras (1751) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
500ml bottle. Dark reddish brown with a foamy beige head. Flavors are brown sugar, honey, caramel, molasses, dark fruits and chocolate with floral notes. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, syrupy texture.

Gluepot (737) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Thick, rich and decadent - this is a beast of a Scotch Ale (actually an imperial, if that is an actual category. Pumping up the alcohol and ingredient list has made this into a Canadian classic. A backbone of very roasty malt supports a super rich taste profile. Thick toffee, dark berries, booze, butter and a hint of chocolate are brought into an extravagant but successful balance. Taste sustains and stays in balance. Not for everyone, but quite an accomplishment!

Tricker (420) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
Bière brune de 10.8 % d’alcool. Elle ne possède aucun col au versement. Elle est très floue. Elle possède un odorat sucré très agréable, évidemment de miel. Elle possède un goût envoûtant, très riche, venant du miel, avec une finale légèrement métallique. Également, sa finale a une teinte de caramel brûlé, ce qui rend la bière réconfortante. Excellente !

UXO (1922) - CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
Appearance: clear deep amber with one finger of loose tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: honey, floral, toffee and butterscotch, molasses, boozy dark fruit. (6/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, very mild bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium to full body, moderate carbonation, sweet warming finish. (3/5)

I continue to be unimpressed by the style in general, but this isn’t a bad one, as it goes. It’s a big boozy beast, which of course warms me up to it (no pun intended). Worth trying if you happen across one. (13/20)

Stoned99 (1684) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
12 ounces on tap shared with Guillaume at Balthazar. Aroma: caramel, dark red fruits, nuts. App: dark brown with red tint. Taste and palate: full body, medium sweetness, sweet and subtle finish. Overall: really awesome in draft. Great job Bilboquet

2.2
jbruner (5402) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden brown from the bottle with minimal head or lace. Aroma of big sweet maltiness and butter. Taste follows, big oxidized diacytel bomb. Nope.

4.5
Franckg (1881) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Arômes de fût de porto, raisins rouges, miel, alcool et butterscotch. En bouche, goût de caramel, baies rouges et réglisse noire. La finale présente des notes de noix, miel et chocolat. Une amertume de miel et chocolat noir reste accrochée au palais. La texture est douce et le corps bien rond. Effervescence moyenne et le haut taux d’alcool est discret. Belle interprétation du style. Une des meilleures scotch ale du Québec.
