The whiskey flavor builds throughout the taste. Coffee and whiskey characterize the aroma. Sweetness of chocolate cake at the end. Tried with Dave at the brewery in April, 2012. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2012
Brown pour, black beer, no head, just some brown bubbles, disappears quick.
Smell is very good: smooth oaky whiskey notes mixed with coffee, peat, hint of liquorice, dark candy sweets, light hint of tar and the slightest hint of something vanilla. Good balanced smell with lot of dark stuff, though not smoked or heavily roasted.
Taste liquorice, coffee, roasted/burned oak, bitter, liquorice wood, espresso, creamy buttery mocha flavours.
Aftertaste of roasted grains, espresso, bitter, liquorice drenched herbs.
Low to no carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and light oily texture.
Good beer, better than the winter Jack Daniels edition. IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
