worldbeertaste (1778) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2012
Cloudy orangy gold with a thick lasting frothy creamy white head. Smells of malt, bread, and nice sweet caramel malt. Medium smooth oily texture. So smooth. Sweet start and fruity peach with a slightly bitter stale grassy finish. Malt, caramel and a mild smokey wooden elements. Interesting. The best Vienna Ive had.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottled 01/09/12. An orangey gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. Sweet oaky notes in the nose with maybe a touch of vanilla. Predominantly malty smell otherwise. A decent length of flavour, Typicalof a vienna, especially as there’s no evidence of the whiskey malt in the mouth.

Cerveja muito interessante. Nota-se claramente o sabor do Whisky, porém de forma suave e harmônica, sem tirar as características da cerveja. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (9983) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2012
New recipe bottle. Though I think this one is 4 years old. A bit on the old side for a 5%er. It pours a slightly hazy reddish amber with a foamy white head that leaves some nice lacing. Smells like an old, malty lager. A bit more aromatic perhaps, a different character with the whisky malt but not too much. The flavor is unique. It is rather spicy with a butterschotchy caramel running through it. Well-carbed. It is decent. Would love to try it fresh.

seymour (1750) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 Tasted from bottle into tulip. Poured a nice clear copper color with persistent off-white foam and lace. Aromas of sweet malt, marshmallows, fruity 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.
