COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A demi-sec ale brewed with whiskey yeasts, from the island of Islay, creating striking dryness and lively effervescence. The nose showcases almond and tropical fruits. The palate is malty, with flavors of plum, dried apricot, and spice. It’s finish is dry and warming from the high alcohol. Rare on tap!

Nose is rather weak but taste is rich and fruity but still almost dry. Yeast as well in nose as also in taste. Some alcoholic warmth at the end.

mikkopen (1049) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2015
750 ml bottle. Hazy coppery colour, thin and quickly dissipating head. Sweetish aroma of malt and ripe fruits. The flavour is sweetish malty, with raisins and dates, and a warm sweetish finish. Not bad.

Marduk (6166) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2015
750ml bottle @Olutexpo 2015. Clear golden color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, malty, smoky, caramel in aroma. Sourish, red currant, malty, caramel, woody in taste. Alcoholic in aftertaste. Too boozy.

FatPhil (13641) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2015
750ml bottle (OlutExpo2015)
Orange, no head. Fruity estery aroma, some alcohol vapours. In the mouth, however, it’s just boozy, and sweet sticky malts. Heady and heavy. Finish sticky. Noppers, they pushed this one too far.

SkillsFactory (523) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2015
Tra l'ambrato e il rosso con riflessi arancio, schiuma arancio chiaro di bassissima persistenza. Aroma di whisky, leggera albicocca e prugna, caramello, speziato, leggerissimo erbaceo. Al palato dolce ma non stucchevole: in primis caramello e whisky, in secondo piano albicocca, leggera frutta secca; piacevolissima coda etilica mista ad albicocca ed erbaceo. Corpo pieno, ben carbonata, oleosa, davvero ben fatta.
