Bottle thanks to Chad. Pours caramel brown with off white head. Nose and taste of caramel, toffee malt, dark fruit, sweet bread and light alcohol. Finishes spicy hop/toffee malt and dark fruit. Medium body.

750 mL bottle. Amber-brown. Not much head. Smoke and humbugs in the nose. Dried fruit and smoke. Not too sweet. Not complex, and finishes quickly.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
750 ml bottle from a small dpanneur over in Gatineau.

Appearance: Pours a deep hazy brown with a couple solid fingers of tan head. Good retention and lacing.

Aroma: Caramel malt, toffee, peat, tar.

Flavours: Burnt malt, black coffee, nuts, oak, hint of vanilla and an earthy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Average viscosity and carbonation.

Overall: A nice Scotch Ale but I would have preferred it a bit more on the sweet, malty caramel side rather than being more dark malt and bitterness.

** Bouteille datant de mars 2014 ** Une mousse beige se positionne fermement sur une bire bruntre aux reflets rubis. Des effluves de fruits secs et de caramel brl manent du verre. Cest mme un peu tourb au nez. Le caramel brl reprend du service en bouche, mais une lgre madrisation apporte quelques saveurs de fruits rouges galement. Encore bien ronde, mais pas trop sucre, ce scotch ale demeure sans contredit un des meilleurs au Qubec.

Really wish the bottling date was legible, as Ive had this for a while, and I doubt it was fresh when I bought it. Anyhoo, this has aged very well. I dont have much to say that wasnt covered by radiomgb below, but I will add that this stuff has some really nice earthy/woody/peaty scotch notes, like its been barrel-aged (I am, in fact, drinking the normal version, though its gotta be at least two years old). Batch number is also, unfortunately illegible, but at any rate this is really good stuff. Alcohol on the label is also 9%, not the 8% listed above.

Bottle. Pours mahagony with medium tan head. Arom is an interesting balance of roasted malts and caramel. Taste is similar, but also a bit smokey and some herbs a poping out a bit.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Muddy brown in colour with a thin but lasting beige head, light lacing. The aroma is of caramel, brown sugar, some sweetness, dark fruits, earthy. The flavour is sweet, light toffee, some dark fruits, woody, herbal and peppery. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, warming, sweet. This is really good stuff.

Apparence: D?une couleur brun caramel fonc quasi opaque, elle est coiffe d?une bonne mousse de couleur caramel d?une bonne dure. Effervescence difficile valuer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Armes: Au nez, ce sont principalement des armes de malt caramlis avec des notes de tourb. Saveurs: En bouche, cest un corps ample. Au got, cest des saveurs de malt caramlis. Finale de dure moyenne, il ny a aucune effervescence et idem pour lamertume. Fiche technique Style: Scotch Ale Format: 750 ml Taux d?alcool : 9% Temprature: 12C
