COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dabei handelt es sich um ein Vollbier, das mit Whiskymalz gebraut wurde. Das Malz stammt aus der Region Inverness in Schottland und wurde eigens für dieses Bier importiert. Die Gerste wurde dabei über Torf gedarrt, was dem fertigen Bier den speziellen, torfig-rauchigen Geschmack verleiht. Mit 6,1% Alkohol und 14,4% Stammwürze gerade in der kälteren Jahreszeit eine passende Begleitung zu einem guten Essen oder einfach nur zum Genuss in geselliger Runde. Erhältlich ist das Whiskybier in 0,5l Bügelverschlussflaschen und 2,0l Magnum-Geschenkflaschen.

50 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 07.09.2013
Aroma is musty and odd with urinal cake and peaty notes. Flavour has urinal cake, some slight whisky notes, hints of toffee. Very unusual to confront urinal cake aromas in a beer like this. Interesting, but perhaps a body too weak to bear the whisky aromas. Feels quite sticky at the end of the glass – a feature from whisky malt I guess.

50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours copper color with a small head. Aroma of wood, distant berries, whiskey, malts and some caramel. Flavor of fruits, goose berries, fruits, mild whiskey and wood. Weird.

Idiosynkrasie (3232) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear reddish dark copper colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma with a slighty fusty, smoky and peaty note. Taste is minimally sweet malty, slightly peaty, cautiously smoky. Slightly monotonous, simply catching the effect and neglecting the other features to produce an overall fully developed and balanced beer.

Very intense beer. I think I'm not able to drink more than one but very very nice. The taste of smoke and earth is very likely. I wish there were more beers like this. Very hard to get around here.

kappldav123 (4577) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, small head. Starts malty-dry, modest smokey, intense notes of caramel. Finish a bit unbalanced, less sweet than the beginning. Light alcoholic notes. Not my favourite.

(Flasche) Es hat eine rostrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer leicht bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist rauchig, leicht würzig und ein klein bisschen malzig-süß. Der Geschmack ist ist anfangs sehr rauchig, dann schlank süßlich und im Abgang bleibt eine leichte konstante Rauchigkeit. Die Bittere ist eher schwach.

Dark amberin colour. Raisins, smoked mal in the aroma. Sweet, tangy and smoky taste with notes of smoked malt.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2013
Bügelverschlußflasche: Clear,copper coloured, medium-sized and stable off-white head, mild but distinctive sweetish-smooky (woodfire-like) nose with a caramelly-fruity base; mild to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied for a beer of 6.0%; less smoke, more fruits in the sweetish-malty finish. A bit too much on the sweet side, but still nice…

rosenbergh (6072) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2013
500 ml bottle. BB 07/09/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear dark amber colour with a big fluffy off-white head. Smoke, caramel, malt and blue cheese in the aroma. The flavour is sugar, syrup, caramel, smoke, malt and a hint of peat. Not very balanced. Sweet caramel and smoky malts put together.
