Idiosynkrasie (5015) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Pitch black colour with no head, just a few bubbles stick at the bezel. Dark malty aroma with typical whisky notes in the background: vanilla, leather, shoe polish. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, some treacle, notes of vanilla, leather, some warming alcohol in the finish; flat carbonation. Nicely balanced BA notes, not overdone, sadly slightly insipid.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2013
Pourd dark black with a small, frothy tan head. Aroma of roast dark chocolate malt. Medium body, quite creamy sweet, low carbonation, flavour is a bit vinous with some roast malt. Dry but sweet aftertaste. Nice change from the usual Emelisse barrel aged versions.

kjorup (24) - DENMARK - JAN 26, 2013
33CL bottle. Near opaque, mahogany colored beer, with a small tan and a little lacing. Whiskey notes shine through in aroma along with coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, hops and peat. Soft almost flat carbonation, medium bodied, oily, finishes with alcohol warmth. Flavor is sweet, salt licorice, coffee, vanilla, whiskey barrel. All nicely balanced. Aftertaste is long lasting, sweet and slightly bitter.

Pyrmir (4279) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2013
330 ml bottle. Aroma sweet with subtle whiskey notes, not as powerful as, say, the Ardbeg version. Personally, I think the subtle flavors are more pleasant than the dominating, in-your-face-flavors. Taste isn’t as sweet as expected, but with a rich, full malt body and a nice whisky finish. Very nice beer.
