seymour (1841) - 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.

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

Bottled. An amber beer with lazing with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry finish.

coldbrewky (1666) - 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.

Appearance: light copper, short off-white head. Aroma: caramel, butterscotch, hint of rye. Taste: as the aroma indicated. Finish: slick, slightly viscous, then the carbonation and a hint of bitterness cleanse the palate. Notes: Something about Schloss Eggenberg beers. Every one I’ve tried I’ve not cared for the palate, and this one was no exception. To me, the palate of their beers consistently detracts: it’s oily, slick, and there’s just something…off.
