DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2010
F-king cool find at THE RHINO BAR Toronto. Deep flavorful pale and red malts, finishes with a crisp malty taste accented by some lemon and grassy hops, bready and full-palate to the extreme. Ballsy beer.

Earthy and smoke in the aroma while the appearance is similar to an EPA in appearance. The flavor is of caramel and a hint of smoked peat. The overall taste of this is similar to a light barley wine, its pretty good, unique.

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2008
0.33L bottle, crystal clear coppery colour. Small, frothy, quickly diminishing head. Yeasty aroma with whiffs of smoked fish and wax. Aroma of honey with some biscuity notes and a touch of caramel, bitterness and light sweetness balancing each other. pleasant soury aftertaste. A nice suprise.

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.

Mellonius (73) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAY 21, 2011
Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Beautiful amber color showing very good head formation and retention, with heavy lacing. Smell is heavily malty, with all sorts of grains, including rice (?). Couldn’t find any notes that reminded me of whisky, though. Good carbonation, with a light to medium bodied feel. Taste is fairly rich, bringing some citrus notes over a heavily malty background. Bitterness is adequate. Quite well balanced. Made me want to drink it again.

worldbeertaste (1795) - 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.

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