omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
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.

KnutAlbert (6118) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle, RBESG 2007. Fine whisky aroma on top of a rather nondescript beer. Oaky, spicy - vanilla. A nice gimmick, but I wouldn’t haqve more than one of these.

This was a weird one. I’ve tried many beers out there from all over the world, and this one was very unique. First of all, I hate to see a beer in a clear bottle. Clear-bottled beers dont hold their taste as long and they get easily skunked. On the pour, little head. The aroma almost knocks you back! The oak cast was immediately evident, with a strong, alcohol, butterscotch, and burnt carmel smell, almost too sweet. The first taste was like drinking liquid butterscotch and beer mixed into one glass. Very sweet and burnt flavor. Aftertaste was the same. Very odd. It was interesting and I’m glad I tried it, but I won’t be drinking this one again.

Aroma of oak, vanilla and a very pleasant whisky character. Bit hazy, copper coloured with an off-white, lasting, medium head. Taste is sweet, just a litlle bitterness with whisky oak. Very smooth taste. Bit watery finish. Actually this is quite a good brew. Thanks to joes for leaving this one in my fridge.

The palate of this beer was smooth, but boy I haven’t tasted a nastier beer in all of my life. This beer taste like beer flavored scotch! I have noticed that a lot of English men have rated this beer and enjoyed it a lot. For me I did not like the whiskey stale smell. This beer had the taste of liquor, and it was too watered down for me. The one thing I can say that was atleast decent about this beer was the palate; very smooth, and somewhat sweet tasting. I just don’t have the tastebuds to stomach this one. Not my cup of beer if you know what I am talking about. Just a very unique beer that I probably will not every drink again. There are some vanilla and wood notes, but as I said, it tastes more like liquor than beer.
