COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wrapped bottle, striped black paper.(Oak Whisky Barrels)
An 9% ABV beer in which the fermented sugars were all obtained from malt (20 degrees Plato). A generous dose of hops and a long maturation time makes this beer best of the best. This beer is bottle conditioned and will go through taste evolution during many years. Matured for a quarter of a year on a selection of whisky casks. (Translation by Martinus)

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle from L’Abbaye des Saveurs, Lille, n. 15700, bottled Apr 2011
Very dark color, almost black, with medium sized brownish head. The aroma is mild, with some chocolate, roasted malt, very light cardboard, some feety yeast. Medium body strength, the body is quite round; roasted malt flavor, with chocolate and a strong liquorice character. The oak is not really evident, but there is just some alcohol perception.
Smooth round and flawless, this beer is well brewed, but there is too much liquorice.

AlexanderJanku (110) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 15, 2012
66 cl. bottle. Pours a light copper-ish colour. aromas are whisky, a bit malty but too dominated by the whisky. The taste is again dominated by whisky. the beer is too weak to balance out the flavours from the whisky barrel. its a shame since the idea is good, but the result is moderate..

Yorker (1252) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 66 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish brown with a small white head – lot of lacing with a small amount of sediment floating around. Aroma is malty, yeasty, sugary, fruity, slightly funky. Taste is much of the same. Not much different from the original – perhaps a little boozier in both aroma and taste. ABV is not as well hidden as in the original.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 3, 2012
66cl bottle, wrapped in paper with a label ’Special Edition - Oak Whisky Barrels’. Pours black, with an eggshell-colored head. Smells of vanilla, dried fruits, malt, cognac, whisky. Tastes somewhat smoky/roasted sweet malt, with some tart bitterness. A bit like lagavulin and some fruit. Texture is oily. Medium bodied. Finishes tart and dry, with a long duration.
