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.

Très bonne bière très aromatique. Ne la buvez pas trop froide à température du réfrigérateur elle ne libère pas tout son potentiel. Quelques degrés sous la température de la pièce suffisent. Son gout de miel oui, mais d’épices, d’herbes, léger caramel. Acide et un peu amère. Sa mousse est moyenne, pas la pire ni la meilleure. L’effervescence est légère et éphémère. C’est une brune (scotch ale) assez foncée. Pas trop "pesante" non plus pour une bière à 10,8% d’alcool! Chapeau le bilboquet!

From my brother for my wedding gift: pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruitiness, some earthiness, and hoppiness. Taste is sweet but not too sweet. Light bitterness. Booze is present but well covered in a sense. Large body. Gets you a bit crunk. I like it.

Dure à battre dans son genre... Elle me rappelle aussi certains Barleywines. Ça goûte les noix et c’est assez tourbeux. Les malts sont vraiment savoureux. Quelle bonne bière!!

Probably my favorite Scotch Ale so far. As soon as you open the bottle, you get the nice and sweet aromas of honey, caramel and a light scent of maple syrup. The color is of an opaque dark brown, lightly syrupy. It’s very rond to the palate, even if the alcohol is strong. The taste is delicious. A mix of salted caramel, nuts, maple syrup and a nice touch of honey. The MacKroken Flower is a bit heavy, but it’s very enjoyable when the weather is cold. I highly recommend it. Enjoy

bunget (961) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle. Clear dark amber body, small beige head with average retention. Sweet, malty aroma: toffee, honey, molasses, figs, dried berries. Taste is subtle and complex: honey, caramel, licorice, hints of leather and herbs. Very nicely done.

3.6
Idiosynkrasie (7427) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Hazy, mahogany coliur with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, sulphureous beige head. Sweet-ish, malty aroma, notes of caramel, toffee, rock sugar, treacle, candied almond. Taste is sweet malty, nuttily, notes of caramel, malt lozenge, toffee, rock sugar, treacle, molasses, candied almond; bitter hoppy interludes; warming alcoholic finish. Oily, viscous texture, slightly sticky palate. Very sweet, but not in an unpleasant way.

DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Shared bottle. Hazy brown pour with tan head. Caramel malt in the nose, some nuts, hops. Tasted like a nutty and hoppy scotch ale, good body.

3.4
Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Notes of flower, honey, and rich caramel malts. Deep hazy brown with no head. Rich caramel malt flavors. Full bodied but fairly flat.
