Near opaque, mahogany colored beer, with a small tan and a little lacing.
Whiskey notes shine through in aroma along with coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, hops and peat.
Soft almost flat carbonation, medium bodied, oily, finishes with alcohol warmth.
Flavor is sweet, salt licorice, coffee, vanilla, whiskey barrel. All nicely balanced. Aftertaste is long lasting, sweet and slightly bitter. Pyrmir (6196) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2013
330 ml bottle. Aroma sweet with subtle whiskey notes, not as powerful as, say, the Ardbeg version. Personally, I think the subtle flavors are more pleasant than the dominating, in-your-face-flavors.
Taste isn’t as sweet as expected, but with a rich, full malt body and a nice whisky finish. Very nice beer. Yorker (2029) - Holstebro, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a lot of sediment and a small tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, subtle smoke, liquorice, and hints of whiskey. Flavour is roasted malt, liquorice, and subtle whiskey – with some warming alcohol. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a pitch black with a tiny brownish head. Subtle roast aroma and some distinct whisky notes. Rich body, low carbonation, heavy roast and thick barrel accents. Rich boozy finish. 271212 VsXsV (4528) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2012

Almost black with a tiny brown head. Fruity with wood tones. malt, fruit, wood and licorice. Full body with a bitter after taste. uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Pours opaque black, almost no head. Aroma is berries, peat, the sea, malt. Mouthfeel is thinner than I expected, and a little oily. Strong malt on finish. I don’t know the whiskey, so I can’t comment on how it affects the flavor, but the flavor is excellent. sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Dark, chocolaty aroma and appearance. Complex on the front, disappears from the mouth quickly except for some lingering heat. Hard to taste beer in it though. Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle! Thanx Mr.Rask! Dark Red/Black colour, big brown head. Aroma! Is a Bomb! of aromas: Dark choclate, vanilla, sugar Raisins, and a little bit Viny.

Pours pitch black with absolutely zero head. Looks like flat Cola. Quite sweet and mega oily mouthfeel. Not much barrel. So far my least favorite of the Emelisse white label BA. The laphroaig BA was far superior.
