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.

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.

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.

andrewgrevell (2) - kettering, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2005 does not count
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.

Ungstrup (33990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of whiskey and caramel, and lesser notes of alcohol and smoke. The flavor is also very sweet, which makes it sticky in the mouth. It has notes of whiskey and caramel, as well as hints of smoke. A lovely thick caramelized beer-whiskey.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours a fine though disappearing off-white head on a clear orange body. Nice and full sweet caramelly and slightly smokey aroma with a woody tone. Malt and caramel flavor, sweet at first with a sourish finish and plenty of fruit. Smokey tones again. Flavorfull and soft in the mouth. Really nice and a good surprise from Scotland!

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2005
Bottle from Shipley Asda. Dark copper to chestnut coloured with a slim, just off-white head. Great complex aroma, thats making me salivate; sherry and vanilla hit you first, then whiskey and malts. Taste: I’d have to agree with the commercial description, pretty damned stunning; same elements as in the aroma but the whiskey is accentuated. Medium to full bodied, lightly carbonated, with a warming finish. Excellent.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Pours a deep copper colour, not much of a head, but it does have a huge aroma thats sweet and full of sherry,marshmallow and oak. Flavour is similar with a lively mouthfeel. Deff worth picking up.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2005
Bottle from Asda. (Clear bottle but in a cardboard box) Reddish brown with rapidly dissipating head. This is a fabulous beer, much better than the standard I&G. Glorious aroma of sherry, oak, vanilla, tobacco leaf, raisin, whisky and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel. Tannic finish. World class.
