Fatehunter (1406) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown in the pour, almost black in the glass. Finger of tan head that held well and great lacing. Some good roasted malt smell, caramel and toffee. Tastes like milk cream, harsh malt with a tease of sweet, bitter follows, ends with a good burnt malt grip. The oak cask is the backbone of it all, bringing structure and balance. It has a warming effect but not in the usual whiskey cask aged beer style. Soft and creamy texture. Low carbonation, medium body, not as heavy as other cask aged beers. One of my favorite whiskey cask aged beers. It’s between a sipper and an easy drinker, which for a cask aged beer is impressive. Not hardly sweet at all, which is great.

Rune (8501) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Rocky, tan-coloured head that stayed well and left spotty lacing down the glass. Jet black coloured body in the glass. Smell of oak layered with caramel. Dark malty flavours with hints of caramel and chocolate on with a backdrop of oak vanilla. Dried fruity endnotes. Hidden alcohol. Smooth in the mouth. Nice, however rather unvaried and a tad too sweet (Tromsø 15.11.2014).

slowrunner77 (6114) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Simple but quite tasty light roasty chocolate favors and aroma blending with a little dark fruit and whiskey. Nice brew, and very smooth and light for 7.4%."

mighty_meadow (250) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Pours very dark with a nice beige head which unfortunately doesn’t last long. Carbonation seemed slightly too high at first but the smoothness quickly takes over. Taste of caramel and whiskey. Also getting some rum and raisin. One of the best I&G I have tried and after waiting a long time to try this one it definitely was worth the weight. A little thicker and this would have been perfect.

Awesome chocolate and dried dark fruits.Aroma of slight chocolate and sage. Nice thick rich head. Great body and barrel aging put this over top.

AlainG (1349) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Brune aux reflets rougeâtres. Une belle mousse beige flotte à la surface. Elle e résorbe lentement en s’agrippant au verre, en y laissant sa trace. Des arômes de grains grillés et de whiskey au tout début. Caramel et bois sec ensuite. Une texture soyeuse laisse passer des saveurs, légères, de torréfaction ou encore carrément de café par moment, mais aussi d’herbes quelconques, par dessus une espèce de mélasse ou peut-être de vanille. Un alcool qui prend de l’ampleur au fil des gorgées, mais atteint rapidement un plateau. Intéressant. (M.A. Janvier 2015 L4007) (1204-270814)

Bottle at home. Pours brown, frothy head. Aromas of dark fruits, caramel, whiskey, oak. Medium sweet and warm alcohol above gentle roasted malt bitterness. Medium body and warm whiskey finish. Nice stuff.u

330ml bottle. Deep brown colour; tall, frothy, beige head which lasted well and left some nice lacing. Gentle aroma of whiskey, dark fruits, caramel and sweet malt. Gentle sweetness and a little bit of spice develops into a hint of bitterness. Light to medium palate and a suggestion of alcoholic warmth. Not aggressively assertive but pleasant and drinkable, nonetheless. Very similar to their rum offerings.

Pours a brown with almost no head. Nose of oak, malt, and something sweet that I cannot put my finger on. Taste of malt, caramel, oak. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
