3.3/5 rDev -11.1%
Served on-draught into a Mitchells of Lancaster flared stem-tulip at a bar in Southern California. Reviewed from notes taken last weekend.
A: Pours a two finger head of beige colour. Nice cream and thickness. Above average (~2-3 minute) retention. Body colour is a caramel-brown. Nontransparent. Glowing. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Caramalt, bready malts. Quite bready, actually. Toffee. Toasted malts. Cream. Brown bread. A mild strength aroma. No alcohol is detectable.
T: Bready with caramalts featured noticeably. Brown bread. Cream. Toasted malt. Hints of toffee. Balanced, with layered complexity. Tasty and nicely subtle. Definitely a noticeably Belgian take on the style. I like it.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Good carbonation. Nice thickness. Suits the flavour profile well.
Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. A lovely Belgian take on the scotch ale style. Hides its ABV well. I like it, but I doubt I'd get it again. One of the better beers I've had from Brasserie de Silly so far.

3.74/5 rDev +0.8%
Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a conic pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live. No best-by date visible.
A- Finger and a half cream-colored head. Moderate retention, about a minute long. Leaves sticky lacing on the sides as it recedes. Ruby-mahogany colored body with middling clarity. Relatively attractive.
S- Interested to see how Belgians will do a Scotch beer. Roast malts, caramel, toffee, some very subtle dark fruits. Well formed scotch ale with a Belgian twist. Rich and roasty.
T- Sweet and dark. It actually tastes like a quad with richer roasted malts. Dark fruits, candi sugar, toffee and brown sugar. Kind of a knock out, surprisingly. Brandy and other dark alcohols make a presence.
M- Thin feel with subtle carbonation. Wet and craggy on the tongue.
O- Very interesting interpretation of the style. Very Belgian. I quite enjoyed this brew.

3.41/5 rDev -8.1%
Pours out a hazy plum with a creeper of a head. The head stops at about an inch, bits of lace hang on for a bit.
The smell is sweet fruit heavy. A mild earth, yeast and soggy wood come in near the end.
Very sweet, almost like a fruity, under carbonated cherry soda up front. Earth and minerals are also noticed around the middle. Sweet aftertaste.
Not that great. An interesting Belgian twist on the style, but not good for more than a glass.
