12-08-11 Bouteille 500ml directement d’Angleterre, best before end of 2011 et batch no.23377: Ambrée trouble, avec une vive effervescence et un beau collet de mousse épais et crémeux. Arômes très maltée , mais peu puissant avec de forte odeurs de pain, suivi par des notes de marmelade d’orange et de noix. Saveurs asser sucrée, avec une petite amertume et une moyenne note surette en bouche. Saveurs de marmelade, de caramel, touche de whisky à peine perceptible, de même que la vanille et le boisé. Corps moyen avec une texture asser ronde et une bonne carbonisation. Finale sucrée, légèrement fruitée et biscuitée. Bonne petite bière qui donne trop d’importance à son oak aged pas trop bien utilisé, mais tout de même très plaisante à boire.

Kristall-König (2673) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2011
Süßlicher und malziger Geruch. Fruchtige Einlagen schwingen ebenso mit, wie rosinige Töne und Whiskyfassnoten. Antrunk mit süßmalzigen Tönen. Mittig stärkere Whiskynoten, vanillig und schokoladig, ziemlich turbulent. Im Abgang moderat alkoholisch, Holzfassnoten und etwas bitter. Wirkt überladen durch die Fülle der Aromen. Hätte mehr erwartet.Test vom 31.10.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (15602) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Der hopfige Antrunk versteckt seine Alkoholnoten nicht und bietet einzige dezente Hintergrundnoten wie z.B. Vanille, dazu vergorenen Fruchtnoten. Die Würzigkeit ist gelungen und gut ausbalanciert, was sich bis zum Ende hinzieht. Das Malz wird dezent karamellig und wirkt nie übertrieben, hefige Noten sind durchgehend vorhanden. Im Abgang etwas fruchtiger, vollmundig, dabei aber nie erschlagend. Gelungen! 11/11/12/12/15/12

Ungstrup (32908) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2011
Bottled. A red beer with a huge light tan head. The aroma has notes of metal, whiskey, alcohol, caramel, and berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, red berries, alcohol, wood, whiskey, and caramel, as well as lighter notes of smoke and vanilla, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. The alcohol warms the palate.

jhubeifc (4) - TAIWAN - FEB 10, 2011 does not count
I bought a 50cm bottle at Jasons Food Market in the basement of the FE21 department store in Hsinchu, Taiwan. It had a dark chocolate brown color and left a beige, full cream color head with good lacing. It had a strong aroma of wood, thick malt and spice. It was obviously a full flavored beer with flavors of wood, dried fruit, and carmelized sugars, sweeter than expected. It had a stronger alcohol flavor than I expected given its 7.7% but perhaps that has to do with the whiskey barrel aging. A light bitter and hop finish. Not as complex as I expected but an excellent beer and one that I would gladly sample again.
