Almost opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Palate is light and dry with modest fine carbonation. Mild dark malts. Tangy but mild speyside. Acetone. Mildly tangy dark fruits. Dry finish. Weird and pretty hard to drink.

0,375L bottle. Pours very dark brown with tan head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, dark chocolate, whiskey, dark fruits and spices. Flavor is sweet and some sourness, dark chocolate, fruits, malt, whiskey and a lot of spices. Overall: very nice, like christmas in your mouth.

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Brown beer, small tan head. Smells like christmas - roast, dark fruit, whisky, spice notes. Flvor is plums, dried fruits, whisky, malt, spice, sweetness, peaty hints, wood. Dried fruit, whisky and alcohol in the finish. Aging the bottle may have made this smoother, I think.

angel77 (1066) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 16, 2014
Botella de 37 cl en el momento el 10-07-2014. (con fecha de cons pref para 21-06-2018). Color negro intenso con poca espuma beige oscura, que al final desaparece casi por completo, salvo un pequeño anillo. Cuerpo intenso, bastante liquido con paso por boca ligero, como un licor, con apenas gas. 10.9 Vol que junto con el cuerpo ligero le dan gran sensación de licor. Aromas intensos de maderas empapadas en whisky y ligeras maltas tostadas, con toques dulces de frutas pasas y caramelos. Sabores líquidos y bastante alcohólicos con frutos pasos y madera de roble empapada de whisky, con cierta acidez y aspectos de vinos dulces añejos tipo jerez y fuertes ,,oportos,, además de ligeras especias como vainilla. Acaba,, sobretodo al coger temperatura,, con algo mas de cuerpo y con una buena sensación seca de madera con vainillas y licor con un amargo muy muy leve, junto con pequeñas notas de cacao y chocolate. Bastante buena, mas liquida se lo que me esperaba, aunque al final recupera un poco de cuerpo. Destaca su gran sensación licorosa. Para repetir

pentaz (1242) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with virtually no head. Aroma is is dominated by whisky and very overripe fruit, lots of glue, wood, dark fruit, phenols, chocolate and pear. Taste is moderate sweet, bitter and light acidic. Body is light+, texture is thin and oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes quite warming with a sour woody note and harsh whisky. This version shouldn’t have been released.

Bottle. Frothy off-white good mostly lasting head. Dark amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy and yeasty aroma. Weird whisky notes. Moderate bitter ugly whisky flavor. Long moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Dont do this to beer.
