250mL bottle poured golden with white head and little lacing. Slight aroma of whisky and smoke. Tastes of caramel malt and earthy hops. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Quite a unique beer.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
Nice amber color, a lot of chunky sediment and a weak head. The aroma is very malty, rather like the mesh, and the flavour is sweet, malty with notes of apricot, plum and citrus. I get no notes of smoke and I find it cloying in the long run.

JonMoore (1807) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2006
Bottle. Nice looking amber colour with a slim off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt and whiskey. Flavours are very sweet, vanilla, malts and light butterscotch. Medium bodied with a light finish. I have a sweet tooth; I quite like this.

HenrikSoegaard (10090) - Randers, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Bottle 25 cl. Creamy white mostly lasting head. Fantastic orange colour. Powerfull malty and yeasty aroma. Lots of flavor, but there is something ih the finish that I dont like.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty much everything is unusual about this beer: the Scottish name, the small, clear glass bottle and the smoked malts. Incredibly pretty (whisky)golden colour with a small, white head. Medium body, smooth malty character with an oddly dry character. Unusual palate when this hits the buds. oaky, smoked notes. 100399

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2005
Just short of downright offensive, but pretty poor stuff. This certainly isnít Bamberg style smoked, just uses lightly smoked whisky malt. Itís very creamy with lots of vanilla and a soft mouthfeel, to the point of flabbiness. Has a rather artificial feel to it. Drinkable, but desperately short of interest. No discernible hop presence whatsoever. Goes out with a whimper. Very peculiar. 250 ml bottle at the Joet London gathering, January 2005.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2005
Insanely sweet vanilla caramel aroma. Flavour is too sweet and cloying. Some oaky smokey notes, but mostly just sickly toffee. Not my type of beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2005
Bottle. Sweet coconut and vanilla in the aroma. Sweet whiskey malt on the palate, and a little sticky, some caramel and toffee and some slight peaty flavours, just way too sweet and sticky.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Bottle at Chrisí house. Amber. Vanilla aroma. Flavour is sweet, of vanilla and some butterskotch. I didnít detect any smoke, nor did I think this was bad.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. A smoky aroma to this beer which tastes like the base beer was a cheap and nasty product. It is mid brown like a standard English bitter and has no head. The tase is chewy and sweet with smoky whiskey notes. Tastes a bit nasty and mass produced.
