12oz bottle from Marche Omni QC for 3.75$

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size fizzy dark beige head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, dark fruits, coriander, molasses

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, dark fruits, and some smokey notes. There is also some molasses and some coriander and peat. It ends with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Overall - An interesting take on the style. The coriander isn't as pronounced as I expected it to be, but maybe that's a good thing. The booze is well hidden and while I won't rush out to but more, I think it's a beer others should try.

Bottle: Poured a clear mahogany color ale with a medium size dark white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with strong fruity and candy like ester. Taste is dominated by fruit cake like notes with some caramelized malt and some candy-like ester. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable and somewhat similar to the Assoiffée 12 I had a couple of nights ago which makes me think this Scotch ale is veering into Belgian territory.

Served from a 341ml bottle

A: Poured a deep brown with minimal head and left behind little lacing. The head eventually turned into a ring which stuck around for quiet a decent amount of time.

S: The coriander advertised is definitely the leader of the aroma. Some toasty malts are also in the background.

T: Coriander is the leader of this beer. It provides an interesting contrast to the malt character which is toasty and perhaps a slight bit roasty. The malts bring forth flavors of overcooked raisin cookies, heavily toasted bread, molasses and dark candied fruit in a pleasing fashion. Bitterness and hoppiness is appropriately mild so as not to clash with the coriander, presumably.

M: Moderate in body and carbonation is well done. Alcohol is astoundingly well hidden and not apparent at all.

O: Very unique but not something I would really drink again. The experience was good and it was interesting to see the coriander flavor in something besides Wits and other Belgian styles but it was nothing astounding. The coriander could get to be a bit much as well.
