MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2005
(bottle) Clear and pale copper colour with a medium foamy slightly off-white head. Sweet malty nose with a touch of whisky smokiness (iodine, leather). Sweet malty flavour, medium body, almost lively carbonation. Starts with smoky malty taste and soft sweetness that becomes stronger towards the finish but is restrained a bit by the sharp carbonation. I like it.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, deep amber with a huge, stable head. Smoked aroma, pronounced sweet flavour and notes of whisky-malt (and strangely also of rum). Surprisingly weak body for such a strong beer. 261001

This is a very special beer. First I thought it could be some breezer. A beer with something added not sweet but smoked malt. I had it on the day my youngest daughter got het driving licence.

Draught at Pub St Pierre, Toulouse. Light brown colour and served in an oversized whiskey style sipping glass. Odd initially, but actually rather tasty and well done. A delicate blend of caramel smokiness and Irish coffee in a sweet carbonated body. Refreshing, easy to down, but with a lingering quality, which is good. Probably quite complex: I donít know anything about whiskey, so wouldnít vouch for the authentic flavour of the content, but this is novel.

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 itíll come out better than some of these brews. French beers arenít 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.

Geiserich (3773) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 16, 2005
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.
