Density: 7.5% ABV 17.2° Plato. Packaging: 33cl, 75cl bottles, 25l barrel. Drinking temperature: serve between 6 and 9° C. Storage: long time under normal storage conditions. Taste comments: It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.

    Pours out dark brown with a white head. The aroma is deep with notes of brown sugar to me my beer buddy. Thinks it smells like aged beef but he is German so what does he know. The mouthfeel is smooth thick and rich like a Belgium style. The flavor is deep and complex.

    Big review night with the local Brew Crew: 18 different beers with barbecue, delicious desserts, and good company. I brought this to the gathering because I'd not yet seen it, and I'm a sucker for anything labeled Scottish or Belgian-- and this is both. The color is a brickish orangey brown, there was not much head but the foam was quite fine. For me, the aroma spoke of molasses and cherry, not overly rich but good. Subtle flavor compared to many Scots, a bit boozy, quite sweet and a little tart. Feels good on the tongue. Works as a fusion for me.

    Single from the SAQ. Pours a deep amber colour with a frothy, beige cap that has good retention and leaves a bit of soapy lacing. Nutty nose at first, but then, loads of apples come out with some butterscotch. Pretty much the same for the taste, but a little milder, and with a tad of alcohol showing. The nuts show more in the aftertaste this time. Decent Scotch ale, but not one I would have again. In this range of strong Scotch ales, preferred the "À l’Abri de la Tempête Corne de Brume".

    Pours dark brown with a lilty tan head. Aroma is caramel and sweet. Flavor has dark fruit, brown sugar, and a ton of malt. All around a bit too much sweet for my liking, but still good nonetheless.

    A Belgian Scottish Ale, go figure - Tasted on National Tartan Day, April 6, Aye! Murky brown pour, tight tall creamy head, massive lacing. Sweet malty aroma, honey, toffee, molasses, some butter, oaken woodiness, nuts, earthy hops. Flavorful and satisfying - roasted toffee malty sweet, very slight peat, oak and woodsy, some nuts and fruits, more sweetness and maltiness, slight honey, earthy hoppiness, pleasant ending and mouthfeel. This is closer to a true Scottish Ale than my last brew. Tasty and I would revisit this one. 8% is well-hidden.

    The Belgian traits override the Wee Heaviness of this tasty beverage. Murky dark brown pour with a collapsing head and splotchy lacing. Figs, raisins, peat moss, berries, wood, and gingerbread all play supporting roles in a well developed profile. Medium to heavy bodied with a sweet smoothness. Nothing outstanding, but a really good brew for sure.

    Brownish red body ring cap around the edge, some spotty lace left behind.Aroma is mostly sweet caramel malts with some alcohol in the background. Flavor is the same as the aroma, sweet caramel malts. Overall a nice brew a tiny bit sweet but fairly decent none the less.

    A mahogany colored beer with a medium sized frothy textured white head rising above. Not mich hang time on this one. Settles in short order into a thin ringlet and light dusting of film aside the glass. A light nose of caramel and pome fruits. A deeper fruit, caramel and nuts. A light-to light medium bodied body with a slickness on the palate. Overall not bad.

    330 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 8.0%. Amber to copper colour, slightly hazy, moderate off-white head. Sweetish aroma of malts, toffee and caramel, hints of fruit and oak, quite nice. Very sweet flavour, loads of caramel, hints of oak and dark fruits, moderate hops in the finish. Worth sampling, but not for daily indulgence.
