Brewer’s Reserve No.3 has spent 800 days gently maturing in old Auchentoshan whisky barrels, adding a spirit-like edge to the beer, particularly on the nose...Brewer’s Reserve No.3’s extensive maturation time has infused the beer with delicious vanilla, warm honey and spicy ginger flavours. These combined with the rich malt body and pleasant sharp fruitiness derived from the beer, result in a wonderfully complex and very satisfying beer

Beerhammaren (1134) - FINLAND - APR 17, 2013
.5l bottle @ Alko arkadia Pours hazy orange with medium head. Aroma is peat, alcohol, plums, vinegar and some dark fruits. Flavor is peat, some caramel, malts, bread and alcohol. A bit too much whisky like beer and alcohol bites too much.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle #03365: Hazy, amber coloured, some floaties visible, off-white foamy layer, extremely gushing; sweetish fruity-vinous and tart-woody nose with a tinge of vanilla; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied, not soft; dryish fruity-woody finish with some hoppy bitterness and a whisky-like (?) alcohol-burn. Unharmonic and disappointing…

from Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - hazy reddish-brown beer with a modest head retention; woody aroma with notes of vanilla and sour cherries; highly carbonated; full-bodied and pretty sweet, quite astringent; fizzy aftertaste of strawberries, pear and wood - quite hard to drink

Kaatuu lasiin kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on valkoinen, muhkea ja alkuun nopeasti katoava, mutta lopussa jää noin sormen levyinen kaistale pinnalle. Vaahto myös kuohuaa runsaasti ja pitää limsamaista ääntä, johtuu ilmeisesti hiilihapoista. Haju on todella monipuolinen ja "vaikea", siitä löytyy turpeisuutta, marjaisuutta, savuisuutta, puuta, omenaisuutta ja vanilijaa. Myös hieman alkoholia tuntuu. Tynnyri on todella tuonut aromia tähän. Maku on savuinen, marjainen, vanilijainen, puinen ja makeahko. Suutuntuma on hiilihappoinen ja lopussa hieman tahmaava, alkoholikin tuntuu. Kokonaisuutena tähän asti paras maistamani viskitynnyrissä kypsytetty olut, mutta en ylipäätään ole tällaisten fani. Olutmaisuus on peittynyt jo ehkä turhankin paljon ja viskin aromit ja maut työntyvät suuhun jo liiaksikin.
