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.

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.

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.

nutty malt, caromel, smoke and a slight hop aroma. a darkish bronze color. flavors of smoke like bacon or smoked gouda. sweetish like a coke. not much hop bitterness. strange beer. needs more bitterness to be balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. A pleasant smoked aroma. Not as in your face as Bamburg smoked but more subtle and still very appealing. The beer is brown coloured. Taste is a pleasant mix of smokiness and sweetness which no doubt is more accesssible than some smoked beers if a little less grown up, but this is nonetheless a fine beer which seems to be treated unfairly by most here (IMO).
