McWorta (757) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 14, 2015
Pitch black with a toastey fine head. Good lacings and slick viscousity. Noses of vanilla, wood, liquorice, chocolate, espresso, violat olives, roasted malts and faint notes of pear and salt. Ligtly carbonation, full bodied with flavours of a light sweetness which offers well balanced woody, alcohol aromatic sweet-roast-bitterness. Long lasting finish with some edge to it. Nice one!

Hanoi (507) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle. Nose is acres of peat, oak, lots of soy, leading to coffee bean. Taste is whiskey, peat, leading to rich dark fruits, some dark sugars than a lasting smokey whiskey finish. Mouthfeel is rich and a bit claggy. Outstanding beer that has been creatively barreled.

gyllenbock (5228) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. Black with a small tan head. A lot of peat, whisky, tar, roasted malt and some warming alcohol. Intense and with a long aftertaste.

@ Eddan 14-8-30: riktigt trevlig torvig whiskydoft. Smaken är underbar len med en trevlig fatton. Mycket fin balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

I don’t understand because i have really enjoyed the basic "Emelisse IRS" but the white label (This Bowmore, and the Wild Turkey BA) no, a lot of coffee beans roasted and cacao notes in taste, strong aroma, almost pitch black and oily color with no persistent tan head... No carbonation and heavy body... Excessive
