DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, - DEC 1, 2006
Bottle at home, not what I expected. Do you know the Jack Daniels Mixdrinks with about 5% alcohol? It tasted pretty much the same. Weird sweet whiskey malt taste. I think the only positive thing about this beer is the colour.

HippieFee (321) - - AUG 8, 2016
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 (115) - 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

efeesse (404) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 28, 2016
Beer with gold color, light body, average carbonized, and the (malt) whiskey flavour, (bought a 50cl can in Cannes supermarket).

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle. Smells lightly malty and smoky. A bit fruity, using the smokiness for bite instead of hops. its hard to go wild on this one, but its quite decent.

Maakun (3627) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Can from Simply shared. Clear dark golden with short lasting white head. Very sugary up front, some butterscotch and sweet malts, red apple, light grain whisky and bourbon. Over medium sweet with light bitter finish. Medium bodied with sugary feel. Yuck.
