berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle (33cl). Batch 218 (bottled 05-07-12), 11.6% ABV. Murky dark brown colour. Small light beige head, leaves a thin ring. Sweet aroma of raisins, whisky, rum, burnt wood, smoked meat. Medium/full body, soft carbonation. Taste is very sweet at first with notes of rum, then more dry and woody, before finishing quite astringently bitter and herbal with licorice notes.

bewyder (543) - FRANCE - NOV 28, 2014
Forte brune écossaise vieillie en fût de whisky. Prise en digestif, c’est lourd, pesant, le malt se fait bien sentir, pas désagréable au goût mais difficile. A boire très occasionnellement. Cependant, à retester pour un autre jugement. Bouteille bue au bar La Tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, le 13/10/2013.

Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2014
Collaboration of Brewdog with Ballast Point, apparently an interpretation of the Scotch style with rhum-soaked raisins and matured in whisky barrels. Sticky, dense, yellowish beige head which remains surprisingly closed all the time, colour a very dark ruby red, almost black, misty. Strong and seductive bouquet of indeed rhum, whisky and raisins, but cleverly embedded in aromas of cocoa powder, coffee with milk, fondant, molasses, fresh orange peel, figs, gingerbread, pipe tobacco, liquorice, pine needles and vanilla. Strong candied fruit sweetness, but in an elegant, noble way, granular and oily, thick mouthfeel, profound chocolatey, caramelly and roasted maltiness, rich and utterly satisfying finish of booze (bourbon and brown rhum), oaky tannins, spicy impressions, velvety and bitterly roasted maltiness and citrussy hops. Excellent.

Perfect scotch ale. Outsatnding aroma, mindblowing taste. Great role of whisky/cherry casks and raisins. Awesome!

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. A dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head. Booze, dried fruits, caramel, rum raisin, wood and some ash. Some hoppy notes. It’s quite warming on the palate, with rum raisin, caramel, wood, ash, bitterness, pine cones and a touch of alcohol. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting boozy and lemony finish with licorice and roasted malts. Pretty nice, but a tad boozy. 140717

Bottle 330ml @ geokkjer
Pours dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, raisin and dried fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, caramel and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
