Bottle @ Ulfborg Mid March Tasting, 2012. Pours dark ruby brown with a small off white head. Sweet vanilla, caramel and dark fruit. Very sweet. A sipper. Could get cloying.. I suspect.

Idiosynkrasie (7628) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
330ml bottle. Darkest reddish brown with small lacing beige head. Whisky dominated aroma, oaky. Taste starts almost artificially sweet, then an increasing oak note comes in, culminating in a sour wooden, lightly salty taste. With the sourness fading to nothing, the finish has similarity to sugar beet syrup. OK, not bad, but this beer takes ALL of its character from the BA. And since we’re here on ’ratebeer’ not ’ratewhisky’ I’m not inclined to give a better score for taste. As a form of refinement BA is welcome, but it is cheating as brewers’ skills surrogate.

Bottled@omhper tasting. Amber colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is fruits, wood, nectar and some mild raisins. Also some slight sherrylike notes. Flavour is smooth raisins, alcohol, plum and also some vanilla. Pleasant and rather smooth.

omhper (25262) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2011
Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy dark brown, brief head. More white pepper and paper than whisky up front. Mediumbodied with rounded mouthfel. Some caramelly malt, drying out towards the salty finish.

Clear dark brown color, tan head. Sweet, malty, alcohol scent. Sweet, wood, licorice taste. Dry chocolate aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness. Some yoghurt in there.

fiulijn (20806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, Switzerland
Dark brown color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma is mild and delicate, with vanilla, whiskey, light oak; it reminds me also of shortbread. The body is weaker than in the other versions; there is some caramel flavor, dark chocolate, and very high carbonation that doesn’t help; there is some trace of the whisky. With a correct bitterness, the final is also a bit nutty, dry, and with shades of Bourbon oak.
Good, creamy, but not exciting.

Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2011
from Au Grain d’Orge, Neuchâtel - slightly hazy brown colour with a little persistent beige foam; more milder nose where vanilla tones become apparent, caramel, wood in the background; creamy palate and a medium malt backbone; long aftertaste with notes of chocolate and nuts
