The head is good, the body blond-orange. It smells malty, sweet, bit whisky, wood. The taste is sweet, bit fruity, more wood, bit whisky, bit alcoholic. Quite nice! sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2011

This is pretty harsh stuff, aroma is bearable, but the low carbonation and firey palate make it a once only affair. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Clear golden with a tiny white head. Sweet aroma with whisky, malt, caramel and woody hints. Flavour had malt, caramel, whiskey and woody hints. Finished sweet. Light body and suprisingly light for this abv and style. Ungstrup (37601) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, whiskey, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, whiskey, caramel, and a bit of wood, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours an almost clear amber with a rough white head. Distinctly sweet oaky, bourbony aroma with sweet malts and caramel. Medium body, low in carbonation, sweet malt and caramel with a massive shot of sweet caramel and Bourbon (which is probably not Bourbon but American oak). A little sweet even through the finish with a good alcohol burn. 010510

33 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry phenolic and dry cornish, light almondish note. Whisky malty, light vanilla and distinct caramelish. Sweet and light alchol warmth into the finish. SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - MAR 15, 2009
no carbonation, no head. massive dms on nose and taste. sweet palate. interesting sweet whisky flavours but otherwise not my cuppa tea, especially not at $10/330ml DuffMan (10433) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2009
Clear, deep dark orange, minisule head that vanishes nearly instantly. The colour is gorgeous but the beer looks dead! Rich burnt toffee aroma with a tickle of underlying booziness. Chewy toffee backbone, a little burnt sugar, a little stewed peaches. In the first few sips I was surprised to find a hint of vegemite but this fell away after a minute or two. Quick finish, sweet but dry. Despite the flat pour, my beer had just the right amount of carbonation, much as a cask hand-pulled might have. My bottle actually lists the ABV at 10.6% but I have to agree with sdriessen that it is completely hidden aside from a pleasant warmth at the end of the swallow. sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2009
Zero head and hardly and carbonation. Pours dark brown.
Dark, slightly burnt malts dominate the nose, whiskey oak shows through nicely. A powerful aroma of caramelized golden syrup (or maybe treacle?).
Some stone fruit in the nose, with dates and raisin.
Flavours are sweet and smoky. Dark, burnt malts.
Slightly salty aftertaste.
Alcohol doesn’t show through at all.
A rare beer, but rich enough to appreciate only once! beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 28, 2008
Dark amber in colour with no head. Sweet whisky malt aroma. Short mouthfeel, thin body. May have been sitting on the shelf a while.
