3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well first off im not a whisky fan, but this is a real interesting beer, Its a nice golden amber colour, with a distictive whisky aroma, the flavour is of a half decent whisky thats been diluted just a touch too much, but diluted with a light fruity carmel malt ale.
There no doubt in my mind i would have scored this wonderfully interestign ale higher if i enjoyed whiskey.

Clear amber beer. Sweet malt nose with a whiff of whisky. Slightly dry palate. Sweet creamy malt with a trace of vanilla oak. The whisky comes through a little sour and with a trace of peat. Fresh and interesting. Mild orange hop at the end.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Bottle at blind tasting. Mid gold colour with lasting white head. Peachy/apricot aroma. Bit weird. Too sweet in the mouth. Ugh, not pleasant. Honey, and dryish on end. Vanilla. Sickly alcohol. 1.5 Bottle from Terre de Boissons in Calais, some apple peach flavour, but itís fine. OK strong beer, wonít buy it again, but itís inoffensive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by tarjei. Clear, golden pour with an off-white head. Quite sweetish and malty on the nose, with some peat in the background and a good fruityness. Sweet, slightly peaty, carmelly flavor with fruityness and a touch of bitterness. Full-bodied, slightly warming mouthfeel. Long finish on the malty side. A rather unusual beer, pleasant and pleasing.

Bottled (BB 12/2007)
Orange-yellow-copper color, not much head. Very oaky, vanilla aroma. Sticky alcohol, light palate. Whisky flavors dominate (oak, vanilla). Aftertaste is short with dry mouthfeel. Anoher whisky gimmick beer, which is not totally bad, but not anything to drink another bottle.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin og Tobak, Vejle. Pours clear golden with next-to-nothin head. What was there, fizzes away quickly. Aroma is oaky, slight peity with smoke and caramel. Quite spritzy with a little oiliness. Flavour is very whiskey-ish. Oaky, malty sweet, but the wood really dominates along with a present viniousness.
Earlier Rating: 10/30/2006 Total Score: 3.4
Pours golden yellow with no apparent head. Very powerful aroma with sherry and whixky like tones. It is surprisingly sweet with lots of whisky tones.

Awww, I had forgotten to rate this on RB, the rating is from late 2005. Since then I have grown more tolerant to beers with whisky flavor. This nice bottle has a solid plastic cover on the neck, which makes it impossible to open, unless you also have a knife. Iím not a whisky fan, (became so sick after drinking it at an early age) so I was pretty sure, that I wouldnít like this one either. The color is warm amber and the head is minimal. The whisky is very clear in both aroma and flavour, so itís time in the whisky barrel has given it the wanted effect. I also get notes of caramel, a bit of hops and smoke. Iím sure there will be a lot of others, that will like this one - but not me...
