Dark brown in colour with thick toffee coloured head. Hint of whiskey on the nose. Thick body but oily residue on palate. Pleasant enough.

...had this from the bottle a few years ago, and I donít remember much about it. I do remember alot of mossy notes, and weird flavors hat werenít correct. I had no idea untill just now it was a NZ beer. I got this at an ABC in Florida. I want to try others, but, canít find them.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2009
Pours a dark mahogany with a short-lived, vanilla cap. Woody, peaty, aromas with notes of chocolate and raisin pie. Rich dark malts with balanced elements of whiskey, oak wood, and stewed fruits. Finish is dry with some mild reedy bitterness. Another entry in the pantheon of whiskey barrel beers, and this one succeeds nicely owing to the quality malts and just the right amount of boozy bliss. Spot on!

SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - MAR 30, 2009
Pours a very dark ruby red, only a slight hue held up to the light. Little carbonation and virtually no head. The oak is on the nose. bit of vanilla and almost a bit of smoke. Slight roasted flavours in the taste, with whisky shining through more towards the end. maybe a bit too much of the oakiness, but its pretty well blended.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2009
Very dark red hue, almost no head at all. Dark berry fruit and apple nose, some roasted malt. Hints of yeast, coffee and licorice. Strong aromas of bourbon whiskey. The whiskey is also strong in the flavours. Supporting flavours of prune, boysenberry, some yeast and roasted malt. The whiskey is even in the sweet, alcoholic finish. Iím actually quite a fan of this beer. Different, and very drinkable.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear orangey brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and a little nuts. Medium body, lightly sweet roasted malt and some burned caramel. Has a whiff of metal. Dry and fairly hoppy finish. 270408

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle with - and courtesy of - yalnikim, poured brown with a filmy head. The nose is piney and slightly medicinal. A sugary palate, with some coffee, but the whiskey comes through quite strong.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2009 Rated September 8, 2008: Tasting at Beervana 2008. Poured dark red/orange, diminishing white head. Aromas slightly sweet, slight chocolate. Flavours initially quite sweet with a honey/whiskey flavour. Sweetness is balanced with bitter roasted malt/chocolate. Well balanced tasty complex beer. Overall 3.5. Re-Rated January 15, 2009: 500mL bottle from the Brewery. Pours a deep ruby. Tan head which almost refuses to form, and quickly dissipates. Sweet aroma, caramel, Marmite. Quite malty and hint of apple, raisins and hops. Almost reminds me of a barley wine. Initial flavour is quite like Marmite, but fades to a well rounded roasted malt profile with a good amount of whiskey in there. Sweet overall flavour, with a little bit of roast malt bitterness. Finish is medium length and slightly bitter. Quite nice, almost a session beer.

Hazy reddish brown with medium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with roasted malt and caramel notes. Sweet flavor with notes of caramel, roasted malt, chocolate and ripe fruits.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2008
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet mlaty with notes of caramel and light notes of brown sugar, spices, and bisquits. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of bisquits as well as light notes of brown sugar and alcohol. Thanks Papsoe for shipping this home to Denmark.
