Red copper ale with a thick off white head. Sweet lactic aroma with horsblanket notes. In mouth, burned or caramleized maple syrup with notes of crustacean shell water. Lighter bodied yet pleasing. An excentric scotch ale. Tasted 28/01/05 at Institut Scotch Ale tasting. Dorqui (2255) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled. Bulky head, clearly hazelnut color, much persistent and creamy. Dark brown color; elegant and intense. Rich and flowery scent with alcoholic and much persistent smooth notes. Honey, sweet malt and caramel fragrancy. Determined and pungent taste, much fresh and full bodied. Extremely sweet and alcoholic, much complex with also apple and fruit juice rumors. Unusual and agreeable. Sammy (12099) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2005
Rich smelling, rich looking chestnut. The taste is rather average or a tad below for a scotch. Perhaps above average for this brewery. Taste a bit metallic, more carmel and malt than scotch taste. blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark cloudy prune colour with a large somewhat-lasting frothy off-white head -- looks great. Very sweet aroma of fruit, malt and brown sugar. Flavour -- whoa! -- that’s not very good, there’s something quite unpleasant in the aftertaste. It’s somewhat metallic. What a letdown after the decent aroma, I had to dump some of it away. Very dissapointing. jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2005
Chestnut colouring, low tanned head.
Light roasty, fruit and herbal aroma.
Fruity, spongy, a little roast.
Solid mouthfeel, sparkly.

Deep amber body with mild visible carbonation, very fine particles, and a thick, foamy off-white head. Sweet, worty aroma with notes of molasses, hot caramel, cherry, and some prominent yeast character including bubble gum. Somewhat oxidized flavor and drier than expected. Has a woody, syrupy quality to it. Palate is somewhat lifeless. Not really to my liking, but I’ll have to re-rate this one in the future. Boutip (6328) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy amber color ale with a super huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of peaty malt with sweet caramel malt. Taste is quite rich with strong syrupy malt, caramel malts, figs dry raisins and nice subtle funky touch from the yeast. Body is definitely above average with a syrup-like body and alcohol is well hidden. thegreenrooster (4373) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Pour is a deep brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is sugar and malts with a touch of hops. Flavor is brown sugar with a hard core metallic aftertaste. Wow this goes down hill fast. Maybe a bad bottle but if not this is not a good brew. Too sweet and metallic. Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
