This one is a nice amber in color with a small head. The aroma is slight vanilla. The flavor sweet with vanilla. It flows across the palate smooth with a little bite of carbonation. Overall not a terrible beer but a little too sweet for my taste.

Bottle at home. Characteristic toffee, caramel, vanilla, not too sweet, let down by not having much whisky flavour coming through.

Not a world beater, but a decent beer. I actully enjoyed everything but the nose, which was slightly skunked. The sweet & peaty whiskey flavor was nice. Still light- medium bodied at 7%. Not too complex, but pretty good."

Old Review. Brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is woody, oak, caramel, some scotch. Taste is mostly malts, the scotch is present. A bit dull overall.

Bought this from Systembolaget when it was available. I have a hard time with the butterscotch which i think is dominating these beers, there’s also problems with all the ’special-editions’ which in my opinion are all pretty much alike. With that said. Roasted malt and butterscotch caramel with some sweetness.

Bottle. Pours dark brown caramel, with a big creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and caramel, as well as bread, oak and whiffs of whisky. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts, grain, oak and peat, and a too sweet finish.

Pours a clear copper colour and after letting it warm up a bit no head just a few spots on the glass. Aroma is sweet mild toffee, mildly peaty, and sweet maltiness. I’m not getting a ton of aroma on this one. Taste is sweet caramel, vanilla, scotch notes, mild alcohol warming/bite on the finish. Very enjoyable beer, I would describe it as a sweet scotch like beverage though much less harsh/peaty and a much lower abv and makes a good dessert beer.
