Bottle 33cl. A clear amber colour with a beige head.Good lacing. An aroma of roasted malt, caramel and whisky. The taste is really sweet and a little bitter. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. charlotte (5350) - rødovre, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle.Hazy brownish colour with no head.Aroma of wood,toffee caramel and whisky.Flavor of rosted malt,prune nice warming mouthfeels and good full body and sweet finish. Pinball (12061) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2011
clear brown, smooth offwhite head. woody , peaty caramelly and old hoppy aroma, for a barley wine, this is a little woody and smoked on top of the usual aroma. the laphoraig whisky malts can be sensed. in the flavor, lots of booze in the aroma, but not stingy. flavor is peat whiskey, mals, warming alc. it does taste like a bw that has been thrown into a laphoriagh barrel. In fact i like it a lot, but then, i’m a bit of a peat smoked whisky fan to begin with. hirigalzkar (3133) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle. It’s really hard to say anything other about this beer than the fact that its drowned in smoke. Some vegtable notes. A little sweet. But why hide away all things beery with whisky influences? finol (3365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2011
Pours red brown with a tan head.
Aroma of whiskey and chlorine. Too heavy on the whiskey so the beer was rather hidden behind smoak and oak, some sweetness revealed that it wasn’t a stout in the bottle.

Amber, with a fairly tall and dense blond head. Smokey malt aroma. Roasted malt and caramel, slight smoked flavor. Alcohol kick. Very nice beer. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2011
Shared bottle @Bishops Arms, København. Near-clear brownish amber, with a fairly tall and dense blond head. A light solventy alcohol smell up front, followed by a sweetish whiff of smokey, light peaty malts. Big and sweet malt body. Burnt caramel, campfire, pepper and some fruity bitterness in the flavor. Juicy texture. Alcohol warmth througout. Feels a bit rough around the edges. Will proably improve with cellaring. JohnRMurdoch (4828) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall, London. Strong slightly sickly sweet malt aroma. Dark reddish brown colour with a reasonable head. Big toasted barley malt flavour with a smokey barbecue aftertaste. Pleasant surprise as I did not expect to like this one. ambcompte (47) - SPAIN - AUG 21, 2011
Potser n’esperava bastant més, al ser fusió d’aquestes dos i al final era el gust com fumat que ho dominava tot massa. Ara, bona. Això si. Però pel preu bastant més car... Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 21, 2011
courtesy of the Erzbierschofs, 11.5% - clear dark brown beer with a poor head retention; rubber and phenol, Islay whisky-like nose; cherries and wood; low carbonation and pretty tasty, sticky, full-bodied, very solid herbal bitterness and a long whisky-like, cherry, woody and herbal finish - very whisky-like and very nice
