motelpogo (6876) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2012
bottled at the rbesg08 grand tasting in pilsen. clear amber with a minimal head; strangely medicinal aroma; dusty and musty with an aftertaste of czech imitation "whisky", which is far from a compliment

BeerSkull (1309) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Sweet scent of vanilla and butterscotch and a strong taste of vanilla and butterscotch. I do not experience the fusion of whiskey and beer, but this is more a sweet soft drink with a slight note of smoke and alcohol. I actually think this beer is really disgusting!

Joakgust (932) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle, 33cl - Dark amber beer with a medium sized head. Aroma is malty with notes of butter scotch, sourish smokey whisky, milk chocolate and licorice. Flavor is sweet malty with sourish smokey whisky, caramel and salmiak. Nothing special.

Skinnyviking (7179) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Clear dar body. Smoky oak aroma. Vineous smoke alcohol malt flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation, bitter aftertaste. A bit too much of a good thing.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Had a rich oaky smell. Had a nice dark red colour and a decent head. Tasted smokey and fruity but a bit boring.

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2009
Dark golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of peat and medicine, with a cardboard note. Sweet soft drink-like flavour, but with peat smoke...

olsvammel (3464) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2009
330 nl bottle. It poured a dark reddish liquid with a small foam. The aroma was sweet and had strong notes of whisky. The flavor was also sweet with whisky. An ok beer, but a bit boring for an oak aged beer.
