TBone (14175) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Dark brown color, small brown head. Vanilla, roasted notes in the aroma. Full-bodied. Roasted malts, lots of vanilla, quite sweetish, some whiskey warming. Nice barrel ageing, although quite typical flavors.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Thx! Black with a mocha / beige head. Nose is huge vanilla from the wood, molasses, sweet mocha, chocolate & caramel, quite unbalanced but nice. Taste is light whiskey, this makes me think more of bourbon honnestly than Irish whiskey with the big vanilla wood notes, sweet with some hars barrel, wood, mocha, caramel, chocolate, coffee, sweet brown sugar & touch molasses. Less carb. witch fits nicely. This is very unbalanced sadly but brings a lot of fun, with more balance this could become a true heavy hitter.

Skinnyviking (7767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing off-white fluffy head. Pitch black body. Coffee roasted malt caramel aroma. Lovely smooth coffee roasted malt vanilla whiskey flavor with a nicely subdued alcohol taste, low carbonation and a suitable long finish.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle@Home. Whisky aroma with chocolate in the background. Opaque, light brown head, good lace. Chocolate, whisky, roasted finish, light bitter. Bit thin and nothing really to get excited about.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
330ml bottle. Thin, nougat coloured head, dark brown with reddish hints in the body. Lots of wood and whiskey from the aging and some vanilla and caramel from the stout. Taste is like a shot of whiskey poured into a stout. A hint of alcoholic burn in the mouth. Body is full, but not too thick. Overall, I really enjoyed this. Spot on.

Pours a dark brown/black color that forms and off white to light brownish head on top. Smells of some roasted maltyness with a definite after aroma of booze!

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Fairly dry palate. Dry wood dominates the otherwise smooth dark malt. Trace of vanilla. Dry finish with a little spice and minerals. Quite aggressively barrelled - US style!
