NordicV (1138) - Malmö, Sweden, - MAY 23, 2012
At Monk´s Wallingatan. Been matured in kegs from the swedish whiskymakers Mackmyra. Pitch black with only a faint tan foam. A nose with everything you could wish for. Oak, peaty whiskey, tones of roasted malts. The staff says that the whisky elements in the beer has grown bigger over time. Since its a really good strong porter as a base the whiskey don´t take over. You get a light whiskytouch in the taste, vanilla, and roasted coconut.

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
#2500. Draught @ Monks Porter House, Stockholm, as Phakk Yakk, 8.8%. Pours cloudy very dark brown, with airy tan head. Intense, dark aroma of chocolate, malt and coffee, with subtle fruity notes. Sweetish flavour of chocolate, dried fruit and malt, enhanced by roasty and bitter notes of coffee, and well-discernible touches of oak barrels. Sweetish and smooth aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence, enhanced by hints of whisky. Good.

The last botte at Wallingatan. The bar tender said he could have sold it at twice it’s already exorbitant price! Abv is 9.5%. Opaque dark brown beer, little tan head. Palate is soft and fairly airy, semi dry. Smooth dark malt - trace of marmite. Nice touch of mellow wood. A little malt cream. Mild and unsweet dark chocolate. Good stuff - thick and tasty!
