Kristall-König (2415) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
Im Geruch malzig, leicht süßliche Akzente, entfernt vielleicht eine Whisky-Note. Antrunk malzig-vanillig. Danach setzt ein rauchig-torfiger Whisky-Geschmack ein, alkoholisch untermauert. In der Mitte leichte Bitterkeit und wieder vanillig. Diese Aromen werden dann aber von einer fast brennend-scharfen Alkoholspur überlagert, die sich lang in Abgang zieht. Einem Whisky gleich. Ausnahmebier. Ungewöhnlich, aber auch stark alkoholbelastet. Interessant und probierenswert allemal. Test vom 29.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Vignale (2413) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Amber coloured with low offwhite head. Little toffee and buttery flowers on the nose. The 7% are well hidden which usually is a good thing, but the to sweet caramelbody is rather plain. A little hint of EKG-like hops with flowerlike scents but almost no bitterness at all. Small resembles of lowland whiskey and a little vanilla, but to sum up, a beer soon forgotten.

Gerbeer (2268) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas of light smoke, wood, and light malts. Flavors of very watery smoky scotch and fruit. Not sure what this is but its easy to quaff.

TheJestersBeer (2200) - SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
Bottled. Medium to full bodied, off-dry. Malty, spicy taste, wood, vanilla, whisky notes, and something reminiscent of Madeira or Sherry. Quite complex. (2009-03-06)

Niall73 (2177) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2013
bottle. pours a golds colours with some fine carbonation present. Aroma os malty/corny, not much else. Medium body, medium carbonation. It’s just nasty - metallic with a weird chemically thing. Astringent. Bad. Drain pour.

Gr0ve (2173) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2007
500 ml bottle. Rich yellow golden colour. Small coarse head. Crystal clear. Peaty whiskey aroma with a bold maltiness. Feels a bit flabby in the mouth as the texture is oily and the carbonation seem to be rather harsh. Lots of residual sugars. The alcohol is also easily noticeable and cuts through the peatiness. Lacks balance. Flavourwise there is lots of oak and peat, and perhaps also a little black pepper and treacle. Finishes with a metallic hop flavour and lots of alcohol. Watery finish.
