inbirraveritas (1292) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2011
0.33 l bottle from "Sörspecialista", Bp. Clear copper brown colour with a laceing and filmy remaining, off-white head and lively/fizzy carbo. Smells sweet-sourish with some toffee. Tasteing begins with a medium to thin mouthfeel and the sweet-sourish, clear aroma brings caramel, nuts and citrus along. The metallic and citric finish is escorted by nuts, which leaves at last a sweet-spicy aftertaste behind. Adequately balanced, rather average one.

Bottle purchased in Innsbruck, Austria. Colour: Light ruby red with a spoty medium head. Nose: White variety grapes, fig, tar, slight whisky note. Taste: medium sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. Candied apple notes, malt influence but really lacking in any whisky personality. Very dusty mouth feel.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Clear gold body with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Sweet aroma...caramel and just a touch of smoke. Medium mouthfeel, nothing too exciting. The flavor is okay. Sweet...corn and caramel. Really no smoke. Just a minor bite at the end. Meh.
