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!

500ml bottle. Pours an unclear deep red-brown with a medium, frothy, long lasting, tan head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, honey, dried fruit and light roast. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, honey, dried fruit, dark chocolate and spice with warming alcohol in a dry, mildly bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Scotch Ale.

Clear, dark amber to brown colored, medium beige frothy head, nice lacing. Aroma is mostly malty and caramel, some candy notes, dried fruits, some honey, light herbal notes. Taste is is quite malty, very sweet caramel and caramelized sugar, toffee, dried fruits, honey, bit toast, raisins, light herbal notes, medium bitterness, sweet finish, almost no alcohol noticeable. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, sticky. I would never say this is a 10.8% but a bit too sweet for me. (bottle)

Draught @ Zeezicht, Breda. Nice dark red to red-brown color with a full sized beige head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is malts, quite some red fruit influence. Taste malts, sweetish, dark forest fruit, blueberry sweet mixed with dark malts. Medium body, quite soft carbonation. Hmm weird combo.

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!!
