UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 From cask. Citric to mild malty flavour and aroma. Lingering chocolate and towards mild fruity base flavour with a mild bitterness showing through. Smooth and and brettish base flavour. Mild acidic and fruity note to the finish. Slight salty finish (nah - that was the pretzels I had..). ANyhow, was a bit off with the brett aroma I assume - but quite nice and not more of than many other served casks or bottled beers.

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.

Bottled (thanks omhper!). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is licorice, fruity hops and quite lemony as well. Also some fudge and caramel malts as it waems up. Flavour is caramel malts, fruits and some slightly yeasty notes. Some whisky and oaky notes become more present when getting warm. Very nicely balanced.

omhper (23724) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2009
Bottled. Clear amber, rich head. Oaky vanilla aroma. Sweet with strong whisky flavour. Solid caramelly body with that does not marry well with th whisky, making the beer somewhat one-dimensional.

20th December 2008. Hand labelled advance bottle courtesy of Rich at Utobeer. Cloudy brown beer. Lively and tangy with just a light touch of whisky and wood. Crisp dry finish. Warming afterglow from the whisky. Just a tad different.
