joergen (19658) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2012

seymour (1320) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted from bottle into tulip. Poured a nice clear copper color with persistent off-white foam and lace. Aromas of sweet malt, marshmallows, fruity ale yeast esters, faint peat-smoke. Lots of residual sweetness, not cloyingly sweet but close, just enough hops to notice. Smooth, creamy, almost syrupy mouthfeel. Would make a good breakfast beer. It’s easy to imagine this being distilled into a fine Scotch whisky.

This has a wonderful malt smell....and a good malt flavor. Good sweet beer, tastes underfermented but it works.

coldbrewky (1411) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Light ice tea amber with slight haze. Film for head after heavy handed pour. Big pancake syrup nose over malt. Nose does not travel. Malt body is soft then enters sweet finish. If this is a smoked beer I totally missed the entire desired aspect of it.

Padilha (91) - BRAZIL - FEB 4, 2012
O "Whiskky entre as cervejas" não é tão whisky. Apesar disso é uma cerveja leve e maltada, com um sabor bem acolhedor não muito doce nem muito amargo. O fato mesmo é que o whisky passa despercebido pelos paladares, porém é uma cerveja de personalidade.
