rauchbier (3652) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle. Copper bronze, good lasting white head and moderate condition. Vaguely fruity and woody in the nose with hints of whisky, peppery herbal hops and slight vinegar citric notes, quite full and sweet in the mouth with hints of vanilla woodiness and whisky oxidation note, sligtly dry and woody finish with some sweet caramel.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Enjoyed this in Edinburgh. Amber honey color, with thin head. It’s exactly what you’d expect a good unpeated single malt to taste like if you perfectly married it with beer. Sweet carmel, a little smoke, and slightly acidic finish.

cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2006
Lots of toffee and sweet malts in there with the whiskey touch coming through quite clearly. Good to look at, good to drink and certainly a departure from other oak aged beers, rare as they are.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 23, 2006
It says Blonde but anyway, it was good, a little more creamy than the one in the bottle, it was too alcoholic.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2006
Bottled. Some vanilla and slight bubblegum. Over oaked. Like a poor man’s malt - over accentuated. Drinkable but touristy.

reebtogi (4614) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2006
A rich copper colour with a pronounced oak flavour and mild hoppy aroma. Poured a fine head that was not lasting.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2006
Aroma of raisins, caramel, toffee, woody oak and a touch of green apples. Definate peaty smoke and oak in the flavour. Mild caramel, quite dry. Copper with a white head. A little thin in body.

iammadeofjelly (194) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2006
This is a fantastic beer, it has a malty taste and a slight hint of whisky flavour and a lovely dark whisky gold colour and faint head. I dont think ive ever had a scottish beer before. (scot-newk) beers dont count.

RichardGretton (4388) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle. Brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is strong and whisky like and the flavour is aniseed, toffee, dry and strongly alcoholed . Overall disappointing.

definitely buy again. The aroma confirms that it was matured in oak aged barrels. Flavour has a hint of whiskey and it has a lovely gold colour.
