Bov (12483) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2008
courtesy of fiulijn - dark brown colour without foam; decently smokey, notes of pear, highland whisky-like aroma (maybe something like a Macallan); some sweetness and a robust malt body; oily and with a strong bitterness; dry and very bitter finish where notes of caramel are playing with those of alcohol, wood and cherry

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 18, 2008
Bottle. Dark rich black with a brown head that dissipates quickly. Nose is full of vanilla notes and caramel with obvious malt with some moderate toasting. Mouth is overwhelmingly vanilla and saltyness with plenty of maltiness and not a hint of alcohol. Seaweed. Finishes like tortilla chips with salt and a lasting vanilla. Brilliant, if the salty tones are more prominent here

Defreni (3094) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2008
Flaske. Sort uden noget skum. Kraftige noter af bourbon allerede i duften. Denne gr videre i smagen som dog ikke er s en dimensionel som Allagash bourbon lagrede. Mske gr imp. stout bedre til whisky fadlagring end den belgiske stil. Den kan dog ikke n helt op at ringe da den stadig er overvldende meget whisky, men helt klart begynder der sig at tegne en mulighed jeg ville have forsvoret i det gamle r.

uhre (384) - DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 The aroma has a lot of whiskey but its mixed with oak, vanilla and smoke. The flavor is very complex, it has notes whiskey notes, with smoke and oak, but also a bitternes. There is also a warmth from the alcohol, but its well-hidden.
