nathanvc (241) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from an Esselunga supermarket in Lucca. Pours clear amber/orange with a small off-white head. The aroma contains malts, peat, smoke, whisky overall, but also some caramel and sugar. It tastes medium to heavy sweet. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Good try but way too sweet and uniform.

PintjeFritz (184) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2016
No detail information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature on the can. Clear amber beer with a short cream-colored head, thin texture, light body, very sweet, malty, caramel, finish is long and malty sweet, more malt drink than a Scotch Ale (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 06/2017 16:12 L6 181F)

Bottle - Clear light Amber color. Has a very sweet smell to it. Taste is also very sweet with some whisky hints. Just awful. You must drink it while it’s ice cold, gets worse as it warms up.

invinoveritas (116) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Pours an inviting caramel brown with a respectable head. Smells of English bitter and cigarette ash, with a bit of bourbon vanilla and some charred oak. The latter two are present on the palate too, which is a little sweet and cloying but does remind me of a oaky whisky. Not bad but a bit strange - tastes a bit artificial.

GustaveEiffel (2) - - MAY 27, 2016 does not count
Great promise at the shop, but very bad at home. Too sweet, brutal flavor of wiskey, it lacks in kindness and balance
