DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, - DEC 1, 2006
Bottle at home, not what I expected. Do you know the Jack Daniels Mixdrinks with about 5% alcohol? It tasted pretty much the same. Weird sweet whiskey malt taste. I think the only positive thing about this beer is the colour.

Lore (2991) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2017
Dark golden colour, moderate sized slightly yellowish off-white head; aroma and taste of caramel,toasted rye bread and some whisky, as well as smoke notes; unbalanced beer

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2017 bouteille 33 cl - couleur whisky, odeur de whisky, peu de mousse, goût sucré, whisky, malt, pas exceptionnel mais ce laisse boire

loscovar (826) - Principality of SEALAND, - JUL 17, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 Bottle from supermarket. Amber light color. Sweet, some malt, whiskey wanna be taste. Bad

330ml bottle into tulip. Courtesy of Bitterlady (bought in some supermarket in Noumea). Smells like creek water, earth, grass, and smoky peat. Lightly carbonated bronze beer with a bit of scummy foam on top. Flat and sweet, doesn’t taste of much. But the palate! Plastic sweet scotch whisky cordial is the closest I can get to describe it. And it lingers. I think this is what a burnt plastic bag tastes like. Weird, really weird.

From old tasting notes. Bright amber, red color. Brief beige head. Perfumy sweet smoked malt aroma. Intensely sweet, smoky mesquite malt flavor. Brief sweet malt finish.

Pas fan du principe de base de parfumer telle ou telle bière avec des saveurs d’un autre alcool, mais pour une fois l’ensemble fonctionne pas mal !

sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - JAN 5, 2017
Ambrata chiara, schiuma fine e abbondante. Nella ricetta ci sono coloranti artificiali, che tristezza... Odore cereali, leggero erbaceo, sapore dolce, dolcissimo, stucchevole. Amaro non pervenuto.

VDuquerroux (1954) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. A golden orange sparkling clear beer with a medium white head ; ok retention. Smoke, sugar, roast, light caramel. Medium sugary sweet, round, light dry refreshing. Light to medium body, thin texture, light syrupy, average carbonation, sweet smoky dry finish. Overall, average. Not so bad, actually.

Piw (1292) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2016
500ml Dose. Golden und opalisierend mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Leichte Whiskysroma. Süß. Pappig.

nathanvc (798) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from an Esselunga supermarket in Lucca. Pours clear amber/orange with a small off-white head. The aroma contains malts, peat, smoke, whisky overall, but also some caramel and sugar. It tastes medium to heavy sweet. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Good try but way too sweet and uniform.
