DuffMan (9746) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Tawny brown, clear, large tan head leaving nice lace. Soft smoky aroma with caramel malt. There is some peaty character here too, but nowhere near that which is present in the Belhaven Scottish ale. Smoky, woody, toasty palate that is disappointingly thin despite its 6.6% alcohol. Interesting though.

Way too sweet for me - I remember a story of a friend of mind who once told me that the first time she drank beer (When she was 13), she didnt like the taste of it so she mixed it with Kool-Aid - This must be what it tasted like...

Interesting! A beer to drink once in a while and not more than one per day. Definitive whiskey aroma and flavour, but Id say a cheap scotch or maybe one of those foul-tasting American whiskeys. Colour is a bit weird. Not the average drinkable beer, but nice to try.

pivnizub (10306) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle: Copper coloured; thin but lasting head; smoky, brandy-like nose, traces of caramel and burnt malts; initial sweet, (smoked-) malty taste; sweetish flavour; short sweet finish with traces of charcoal and some bitterness coming really very late. Too sweet and kind of "artificial"..................

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
50 cl can. No yeast in bottom. Amber clear colour with a fizzy fast head. Just little aroma of sweet malt. Big mouthfeel with a smooth whisky flavour, some speciel and different.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2005
Deep amber colour with a fairly big off white head. malty aroma with a clear smokyness. Flavor also has some smoke, but also a light sweetness with woody notes.

MusicalBox (1) - ITALY - SEP 8, 2005 does not count
A hybrid without a soul. Clear, anonymous color topped by a rather inconsistent layer of foam. Malty aroma and excessively sweet taste, no wonder some occasional drinkers find it nauseating. A long, reiterated and somehow difficult approach is needed before being able to rate this beer as drinkable.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours light amber golden with a foamy off-white head with spots of fizziness where the abundance of fizz bubbles break the surface. Aroma is initially a bit skunky, past that however, this beer has an interesting aroma. Smoky, with hints of seaside & some orangey citrus notes. Flavor has a smokey oak taste at first, finishing with an overly sweet caramel/toffeeness, almost too creamy of a mouthfeel with hints of buttered toast. Very interesting, but definately not a daily drinker by my standards.

NosirIwont (2409) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle. Pours an amber colour with an off-white head. Peculiar aroma; acidic/citrus with smoked notes and malt. Flavour is smoked, but in a slightly cloying way - feels more like an added smoke flavour than the result of using smoked malts. Also sweetish with a slight alcohol note in the finish.
