COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Gushed upon opening and poured an amber color with an off white head. Aroma is marmalade, peach, toasted oak, some gingery notes, red berries, whiskey and orange. The flavor follows the nose and is kind of over carbonated, I get marmalade, toasted oak, dark fruits, red berries, peach, toasted oak, whiskey, orange and ginger notes. The body is medium with a very fizzy mouth feel because of the carbonation. Overall a solid oak aged English Ale, but still not my favorite in the series.

Erasmus_ro (1374) - Alabama, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Alko Arkadia. The bottle opens with a big hiss and foam starts to come out. Poured into a 0.3l snifter, the whole glass is filled with foam on the first pour. No sign of the beer itself. Finally the head settles and surprisingly enough, the beer is copper amber with a sleek, small, stylish, slightly reddish hjead. Aroma is somewhat sour, slight vinegar, a lot of oak barrel, slight whisky and vanilla, maltiness, slight smoke. Taste is a tad sweet, a lot of salty liquorice, slight whisky peat and smoke, a slab of vanilla on the finish. Vanilla and malt in the aftertaste. Slight oxidation is detectable at times along with wooden notes. Palate is quite full, not much carbonation.

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle, pours almost clear amber with small white head. Aroma and taste is nuts, whiskey, vanilla. Much alcohol in both taste and aroma, also kind of sour which isnt that pleasant. Little bit weird but still kind of intersesting.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2012
Bottled from Systembolaget N:o14565 Amber with a fizzy head and high carbonation. I’d say this one’s a bad bottle. Sourish in both aroma and flavour (vinegar) and very fizzy. Alcoholic with only faint notes of maltiness and vanilla. Some late, wooden notes.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 26, 2012
Flacher, minimal scharfer Beginn mit säuerlich angehauchten Noten. Die Säure wird dabei stärker, die Malzfraktion ist dagegen erstaunlich schwach ausgeprägt. Trocken herbes Finish mit passender Säure. 11/12/12/8/12/11

hackobock (1391) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2012

Lilja (1637) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2012
Smak och doft av ek, whiskey, malt, honung, körsbär med ton av vanilj. På gränsen till för söt men räddas upp av beskan, har vinösa drag. Lite torr eftersmak.

Vignale (2064) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2012
Engelsk strong ale möter belgisk oud bruin. Sötsyrlig doft och smak med tydliga vildjästdrrag och körsbär bredvid träfatssmaker av, whiskey, ek, smör och vanilj. En ganska märklig men inte alls obehaglig upplevelse. Den stora sötman balnseras bra av syran men jag undrar om det var så här det var tänkt.
