Pours a clear copper-amber; small, thin, yellow head. Distinctive flavour. Vanilla, malty biscuit, soft hint of banana? Rich, creamy feel with a soft, sweet finish. Definitely worth a try, quite different, though there are dangerous suggestions of vanilla milkshake. bit too sweet for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, copper pour, with an off-white head. Rich, malty nose, slightly peaty, with some fruityness as well. The flavor is sweet, with maltyness, some fruit notes, and not much bitterness. Neither in the initial flavor, nor in the finish. Full body. A nice, malty and peaty beer. I normally prefer more hoppy beer, but this one is nice, but maybe a bit on the sweet side. Repeatable indeed. (071005)

Sugary toffee nose has a strong hint of pencil shavings. Obviously some oxidation in there, whether voluntarily through the oak-aging or not. A bit undefined in the nose, whispering hard liquor tunes on top of its vanilla and almond skin nature. Alcohol does show up more than you’d expect toward the finish. In the end, it gives the feeling of a strong, sweet and chaotic ale which makes me wonder why I actually enjoyed it. Competent chaos I guess.

Amber colour, low head. Aroma from oak, vanllla and cheap re wine. Good whiskey barrel tone in flavour with peaty notes, yet mouthfeel is mellow with vanilla.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at RBESG ’07. Amber colour, minimal head, clear. Sherryish woody nose with some vanilla. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Evident and elegant barrel flavour like a less peaty Highland whisky. The malt however is a bit mellow and not firm enough. Still a good interesting beer.
