Travlr (21680) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Draft. Deep golden color, small white edge head. Aroma of vanilla and tons of summer and tropical fruits. Taste is sweet and slightly boozy, but the JD is very subtle and in the background. A proper BA treatment of s decent base beer.

Koelschtrinker (17734) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
Recht süßer Antrunk, der aber noch in Ordnung geht. Die Würzigkeit ist angenehm, besonders der Hintergrund bietet eine leicht alkoholische Kräuternote. OK! 7/9/8/8//9

Thanks Edo! Amber color, a bit hazy, tiny, mostly vanishing white head. Toffee and vanilla in the nose, also some alcohol. Very thin body, almost watery! Evident alcohol, whisky but more cheap one than JD. Light hops, light toffee. Very simple and big dissapointment. Perhaps doesn’t improve by aging ... or it is different between bottles. I’ve had better Emelisse White Labels.

The beer is amber in color with a white head. A fair amount of booze on the nose with a bit of a nail polish remover note. Somewhat perfumey, too. There is a lot of sweet caramel malt, some toast, and a bit of whiskey. A bit better on the palate as there is some fruit character, a nice maltiness, and whiskey flavor. Mild oak and vanilla notes, but still fairly hot and alcoholic.
