Tastes of wood, vanilla, whiskey, light peat, caramel, and some dark fruits. Plovmand (8301) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown almost black colour with a medium beige head. I sense vanilla and oak besides from the expected roasted malt, chocolate and liqorice. Some port in nose as well. Flavour is dakr roasty malts and the sweetness from a whisky cask. Very long roasty finish of vanilla and oak. Very interesting brew. MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Smooth beer with vanilla and whisky flavors finishing to a nice oaky dry roasted finnish. Admirably balanced near perfect marriage of beer and whiskey, the aroma promises a lot and the taste manages to top it. I love this stuff. douglas88 (9174) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 A big thanks to Andrew for sending this beer a few months ago from Scotland. Pours a clear black with a tiny head. The aroma is rich oak and whisky notes, some vanilla too. The taste is very smooth; very noticeable cask aging, a nice sweet whisky flavor, some vanilla and light coffee, a small peat aspect too. Very nice, understated and refined. larsniclas (7066) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2008
Black with a medium, off-white head.
