2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. Dark golden colour with a mostly lasting frothy tan head. Strangely sweet peaty aroma. Smokiness is nice, but the sweetness makes it seem very artificial. Flavour is smoky bacon and peperoni with a strange sugary sweetness in the background. Light bodied, oily mouthfeel. Leave out the sugar next time please and thank you.

On tap somewhere in France. Beer with Whisky? This brewery is retarded. They had another beer with vodka and another with Tequila. Why are they bothering? Just use hops and malt and hope and it’ll come out better than some of these brews. French beers aren’t afraid to try different things, but so far none have worked. This one at least sorta tastes like a beer.

Ugh. Had this in Paris. It tasted awful, like someone left a wet beer label inside of the tank it was brewed in .

Bottle. Clear bottle with a light gold color and a medium bubbly head. Fizzy mouthfeel with a cardboard taste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one was better then expected. NIce smoked meat aroma. Fluffy head, copper to bronze color. Sweet flavor like lemonade with smoked notes in end. Dry, smoky finish. Oversweeted but drinkable beer.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Strangest. Medium and escaping head. Dark amber color, little bubbly. Sweetish and liqueur aroma. Whisky and little other the main aromas. Sweet and unpleasant. Taste very far away from the true beer. Difficult to characterize it.

from the 50 cl can, one can read the ingredients in adelscott. just as they say about hot dogs, one might be better off to not know what goes into this product, but here it is: water, malt, maize, whiskey malt, sugar, aromatic compound, caramel, hops and ascorbic acid. now, like everyone, i just love a nice shot of "aromatic compound" whenever i can get one, but stink compound is rather how i’d describe the effluvia emanating from this denizen of brewing’s dismal low end. the nose is like some kind of rubber grout-- like the viscous crud you could scrape out the joints of very old plumbing. my rating began more auspiciously, by enjoying a smooth decanting of a vivacious beer of baked-carrot amber, clear, with a well-endowed pillow of froth--the color of vanilla ice cream. as it warmed, i grew just slightly more forgiving of the smell, a smoked sticky-bun effect battled valiantly with the burnt grout. like others have said, the final nail in the coffin of this product is the absurd sweetness. thin, with an overdose of caramel candy that only an eight year old could love-- it’s smoky whiskey effect is absolutely overwhelmed and wasted in this adolescent sugar pop.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Slightly skunky, hoppy, whiskey aroma. Sweetish, whiskeyish taste. Has horrible adjuncty notes and is too sugary. The whiskey gives this more of a booze flavour, and the whole beer comes across as a bad malternative.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. I cannot possible see how this beer rates so low. Flavor is lightly smoked with some caramel and subtle vanilla. Low carbonation makes this really smooth and really drinkable.

This is an interesting beer. Amber colour, good taste, with a light whiskey aroma.
