Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2009
Pours an exceptionally clear amber body with redish highlights and a non-existant head. Nose shows trademark peated malt, albeit rather mild with some gritty, earthy honey. Palate has significant malt, which brings with it some honey sweetness. Peated malt pops up again and delivers more dry, earthy characters. Not bad, rather similar to innis & gunn oak aged.

Choos (604) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2009
Aroma: light smoke lots of malt. Appearance: rose gold amber with a smallish quickly dissipating white head. Vanishing taste and the barest hint of smoke. Palate: thin.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2009
bottle 33cl beers of europe. Great red body, good colour. However, a bit disappointed with the thin taste. Proclaims to be smoked but I couldn’t taste it. Not an overwhelming whisky taste even though you would expect it to. Honey notes but not much else. Not bad but not great...

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 6, 2009
0.33 l bottle my mother brought from Linz, thanks! It poured golden copper body with small head. Interesting aroma, nice malty in a bit honey of flowery way, some peat. Light flavor, again, peat, flowery/honey malts, a bit dusty in that thin body. Shorter finish copies its flavor exactly. Nothing about wiskey here except that weak notes of peat. My second smoked and another non typical example, but an OK beer I would prefer over most of ordinary lagers.

0.33l bottle, 5%, 12° (I decided to split the entries because the difference is huge), courtesy of and shared with heavy whose mother brought it from Austria (thanks!)
Poured an orangey dark gold. Honey dominates the nose with just a touch of dusty hop. The taste is ol, some honeyish maltiness, a bit flowery. It’s an ok beer, but not much to do with the old one and even less with whiskey.

tomer (1704) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2008
0.33L bottle, crystal clear coppery colour. Small, frothy, quickly diminishing head. Yeasty aroma with whiffs of smoked fish and wax. Aroma of honey with some biscuity notes and a touch of caramel, bitterness and light sweetness balancing each other. pleasant soury aftertaste. A nice suprise.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 14, 2008
2008 Bottle - Dark yellow not red, little head...also this is 5.0%, not 7.3...aroma is lager-y, with slightly more peat...flavour is pretty generic with a bit of caramel, bit of grass, finishes nice, but is meh in every way...

zvikar (3417) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2008
From bottle, clear amber with diminishing head, whiskie’s malt, watery with strong malt flavour, like cheap beers nothing impressive although refreshing.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2008
A clear amber colored beer, with a little beige head. The aroma is malty , some fruits and some smoke. The taste fruity some raisind. A little caramel and some bitter. Whisky is well hidden.. the aftertaste is a little bitter.

finol (2166) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle from Systembolagets beställningssortiment. 5,0% alcohol. Like a macro lager in apperance and flavour but with a hint of whisky when it got warmer. I think a beer needs more flavour on its own to be able to benefit from whiskeytaste
