Kita (1780) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Clear amber color with small creamy white head, fair lacing and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, vegetables, dandelions, bread and vanilla. Tastes of light sweet caramel and biscuit malt and moderate herbal bitterness at finish. Medium body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Not so special as expected, but good enough to drink it easily...

Wellll it’s not red (more bronze) and as far as the whisky malts are concerned I ain’t tastin ’em. I was pretty disappointed overall. The aroma lead me to believe I was getting something more than what would come. A very dry lager with very faint malt flavor. The aroma has some alcohol and smoky malt to it, but none of that comes out in the flavor. Hmm, this one is a dud.

Geruch nach Eiche, leicht säuerlich. Auch nach schwarzem Tee/Bergamotte und Zitroneneistee. Geschmack dann leicht holzig mit Vanille.

DiarmaidBHK (4057) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle from Sun devil liquors.pours musty, dirty brown with a thin khaki head. It looks like a long island ice tea. Unfortunately it smells and tastes like a flat soda. I’m really fighting myself to drink this. It;s just fucking nasty.

bartlebier (3213) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2013
33cl bottle, Interspar Bregenz Jul2013. Interesting tacky Austrian copy of British vintage label Kitsch, in combination with the cheapish and light bottle, this beer issues its own warning. Faint reddish brown pour, watery mouthfeel, hints of butterscotch and smooth caramalts in low doses. Not much else going on, hops are out of the picture. Second German/Austrian beer with whisky malts in a week, so far it is more underwhelming than their whisky barrel aged counterparts: maybe let the matured whisky, not the malts do the heavy work?

olsvammel (5410) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle from a friend. Sweet and malty smell. Similar taste, a bit boozy despite the low ABV. Drinkable but also one-sided.

Cuso (7275) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. dark golden color with small white head. Strong malty aroma with caramel, notes of whiskey. Taste, perfume malt, honey, some oranges. Very light bitterness in background.

Grzesiek79 (3809) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Piwo dobre, zwlaszcza wyglad jest fajny. Ma piekna i trwala piane, mocne wysycenie oraz aromat whisky slodowej. Kolor amber lagera. W smaku slabsze od wersji juz nie produkowanej, malo wyraziste i ulecial gdzies aromat wedzonki, tylko tem posmak whisky pozostal, ale jest o wiele bardziej mniej intensywny od wersji poprzedniej.

NikkTwist (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber with no lasting head. Feels like a weak Tripel. Not bad just not complicated. Tasted better cold.

Erstaunlich, welch Aromen angedeutet, aber nicht vollkommen ausgeführt werden. Leicht Belgien, leicht hefig und leicht nüssig. Doch immer wieder sind es nur Nuancen, während man auf die Explosion wartet. Schade, mit etwas mehr Herz hätte hier ein Wahnsinn von Bier entstehen können.
