3.08/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

pours a cloudy dark red/brown color with a bit of head that fades quickly into a ring of lacing.

smell is decent - sour, smokey, grapes, alcohol, molasses.

taste wasn't the best in my opinion - really smokey with a very slight fruitiness. got a bit easier to drink as you go on but still not that great of a balance. overall wasn't what i expect from a scotch ale and didn't really enjoy it.

3.55/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Clear brown with copper highlights. Beigeish cream on top.

S- Some sort of sweet, metallic alcohol and yeast. Not sure how to describe it. Cinnamon.

T- Seems to style. Grassy, woody hoppiness. Just enough sweetness and malt taste. A little smokey and spicy.

M- Medium to low carbonation makes for a full bodied creamy brew. A bit of a dry finish.

D- Good. The smell did not want me to have more though. Tastes better than it smells.

Good beer but the smell turns me off too much.

Thanks to Josh for the opportunity...
Appears a hazy dark chestnut with a small, off-white head. Spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is nutty, with heavy caramel, molasses, cooked sugar, vanilla, mild smoke, and a bit of oxidation.
Taste is of the aromas with a velvety, sweet flavor picking up sweet caramel, and light cocoa.
Mouthfeel is smooth, with a light alcohol burn, and a sugary finish.

341ml bottle shared courtesy of Josh.

Poured a deeper amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, with some light oxidation. Tastes of toasted caramel, nuttiness, very lightly earthy, and some dark fruits.

Queue the dueling bangos!

A: Mahogany with a light tan head, very little retention, some leg/lace.

S: Nice peaty smokiness, bready, earthy, caramel & nuts, alcohol & wood.

T: Smoky spicyness like a sausage/rauchbier; some caramel sweetness but it has plenty of bitterness to back it up, fairly woody, with a bit of a homebrewed flavour (not sure what that is).

M: Moderate body & carbonation, some residual sweetness but the alcohol has a drying finish. There's enough smoky spicyness to give it a peculiar feel.

D: If you like some smoke, it's quite good. It doesn't seem as strong as it is, but the flavours certainly aren't smooth.

Thanks again for the LIF Mattt!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

341 ml bottle.

A- Decent beige head. Nice clear dark reddish coppery colour. Good bubbles. Leaves lace on the glass.

S- Malt and caramel. Nice rosted aroma that doesn't smell burnt.

T- Good caramel and roasted flavour. Becent malt middle. Nicely balanced bitterness behing the malt. A simple but well balanced beer.

MF- Medium bodied (not quite as full as I would like). Leaves a good feel to the mouth.

D- Like a strong "rousse" more than a scotch ale. A good malty beer that goes down easily. Not exciting, but solid overall.

3.53/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours medium dark cooper with a big foamy head that dissipates down to a thin film. Medium lacing, low carbonation, looks like a weeee heavy.

Aroma is a bit roasty, a bit malty, a little to smoky but still very wee heavy. Esters and aromas are quite malt pronouced and sweet.

Taste is all malt, chewy sweet, a little cloying and soapy/viscous in the mouthfeel. Although a fine and decently drinkable brew, I'd have a hard time having a bunch of these. And at almost 8% avb, its a good thing.

bouteille brune de 341ml.

bière d'un rouge-brun très agréable à l'œil, très claire. la mousse est mince mais elle perdure. elle possède un nez beurré caramel, un peu sucré, rond et agréable. en bouche elle a une belle longueur, amertume moyenne, un peu de caramel. agréable.

3.63/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Red burgundy beer, similar to wine, no head at all, no retention. So bubbles there and there but not much. Limpid and clear.

Smell is quite of malt, sugars and spices, nothing very interesting.

Taste wise there is something lacking in this beer, character, aging, I don't know. It was pretty dull, shy caramel flavours and a malty touch, with a shy spices touch which ends in alcohol warmness.
