danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 20, 2009
An odd copper red colour with a minimal white head. The aroma is at first quite metallic, turning into a woody, cherryish malt aroma as it warms. The flavour is surprisingly thin - I couldn’t tell that there’s whisky malt in it, except for the warming, sweet malty component. No smokeyness, really. Unpleasing palate - a castrated bockbier.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are malt, caramel and wood. Some notes of whisky, but not as distinct as the old one.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours copper with off-white head. The aroma is a touch skunky at first, but it fades; then the aroma is sweet caramelized malt with a toasty smokiness to it. The nose isn’t a meaty smoke like, say, Schlenkerla, but more of a smoldering deal. The flavor is pretty metallic with a focus on toasted malt and caramel. The actual smoke is quite tame, and reminds me more of a smoldering grass fire than the robust smokiness I want. Drinkable, but very disappointing.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Clear copper-orange with a thin white foam. Aroma is caramel, light woody smoke, but watery. Taste is metallic, still water, again light smoke and toasted caramel.
