mjs (5614) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2015
(Bottle, 0.75 l - bottled on 19 September 2013, thanks FatPhil, 20150926) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vanilla, wood, malts and sweetness. Palate was full bodied, warming and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, sweetness, malts, wood and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, woody and bitter. A good brew bit too boozy and woody.

Brown beer, small tan head. Nose is bourbony, I suppose this is the rye whiskey, oak, vanilla, caramel. Flavor is caramel and whiskey, booze notes, oak and vanilla. Finishes with booze and caramel, hops. Simpler then expected, but still pretty nice.

Nocturne (1380) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
750ml bottle. Dark amber. Two fingers of head. Aroma is all rye whiskey at first and then joined by some lovely dark fruit notes. Cherry, tree bark and wood. Quite a flat mouthfeel and the taste has chocolate, fruit and wood. There’s a dryness that helps drinkability but feels a little harsh at times. Very good, and quite distinct from regular Old Numbskull.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
750 ml bottle. Cheers veliemboys. Pours a dark amber colour with a small white head. Aroma sweet toffee, burnt caramel, perfume and some fruitiness. Flavour of strong sweet toffee notes, some astrigent, strong stinging wooden tartness, raisins, bready maltiness, some mild floral notes and a fair amount of vanilla. Full bodied. Finish is quite strong on sweet dried fruitiness and wooden tartness. Complex. As a big fan of rye whisky this was quite a treat.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from Beer Monger, Portland
Brown color, dark, with thick creamy head. The aroma is noticeable even from the bottle as soon as it opens; the malt has an unparalleled richness, fresh, perfumy, creamy, intense. The body is thinner than expected; good malt flavor, but with the rye it gets a bit too boozy, and the feeling lingers on the tongue.
