UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 Thanks to Sk8viking for sharing (June 2006)- Brown with golden edge, no head at all; Very big , very deep and complex nose, which is very full: quite oxidized, with hints of both dry sherry and cheap port, lots of alcohol sharpness and lots of cheap Bourbon sharpness; Very soft and very full body, sharp and again a lot of oxidization, licorice sharp whiskey character. Very special like nothing I ever had before, a whiskey bourbon like sharpness, seams like the alcohol is almost brought along from the whiskey, very little carbonation, deep and complex but very strange. Tasted again in August 2007 7-3-7-4-15=3.6.

Thanks to JohnC for sharing this one at Noogfest. I really would like to try this one all by itself in a larger sample and on a clean palate. Thin head of brown over a deep brown body. Brown sugar and bourbon aroma. Very smooth and sweet.

2004. Pours with a reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. It’s sweet and malty with lots of vanilla and oak notes...great bourbon notes. Can’t wait to try this with some age on it. Full bodied, surprisingly smooth and a bit warming.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 Bottle 2004. At sk8viking´s. Pours a clear red/brown with a tanned, dimminnishing head. Smells portlike. Very sweet with aromas of prunes, vanilla and lots of oak. Reminds me a bit of a mild, sweet port. Very full bodied. Crisry dry finish. Very nice.

Rerated at toncatcher’s... perfectly same score.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a clear orangey brown with a very limited head. Aroma of raisins and bourbon - a very distinctive and pleasant aroma that is. Good, full body, slightly tart with massive alcohol. Notes of dried fruit - raisins in particular - raisins soaked in rum, or rather Bourbon as the oak and vanilla really shines through. Lots of roasted malt. Subdued bitterness. A lovely brew. 020606

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
Bottle #199. The color is deep red with a slight hazy hanging in the beer and with no head. The aroma is very sweet and very malty with strong notes of caramel, but also with signs of the alcohol. The flavor contains strong notes of wood and alcohol, combined with notes of caramel and vanilla, as well as light notes of whiskey. The alcohol tickles the tongue while drinking, and mouthfeel is thick.

This scotch ale pours a deep mahogany color from a 750ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is bourbon and oak, malty and smoky. A medium to full bodied scotch ale. Malts are dark fruits and sweet, Lots of subtle oak and bourbon flavors. Hints of caramel and sweet. There was some butterscotch but it disappeared after a little while. There is some peat and smoke as well Very full, creamy, and smooth mouthfeel. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of bourbon.
