2013 - 01 - 30 330ml bottle. dark brown colour with a red glow. medium, fading to small tan head. complex aroma... hints of licorice, grapes, caramel, coffee.... bitter-sweet taste, bit alcohol... dry palate...
I expected a bit more from this. It has a nice taste of roasted malt and whiskey, but considering the aging I hoped for a richer taste. Decent. Martinus (4610) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2013
Dark brown to black colour, off-white head. Starts out with herbal aromas, soon replaced by cacao and chocolate, quite boozy. Some mandarins (tangerines) and what feels like an almost completely hidden hint of smoke. Sweet woody flavour, astringent, red wine, sour notes. Dry finish, dry sour, astringent wood, red wine, traces of whisky. Amusing, and nice as an experiment, but for me not something I’d drink a whole evening.

(From 33cL bottle @ home. Batch 2857. From trade with CountBeer. Thanks Kamiel!)
330ml bottle. Clear dark brown colour with small, frothy, collapsing, off-white head. Aroma has an intense oak note, but nothing else. Taste is dry, notes of oak, leather, a sourish dark malty touch in the background. Expired? ration (2245) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
300313. Bottle at home. Pours almost black with a nice head. Aroma ripe fruit(?), coffee, vanilla. Maybe a bad bottle because this tastes like a wild ale. Yet it works very well. Not Bad. jerohen (2306) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2013
Bottled from biernavigatie.nl. Black appearance, small brown head. Nose of vanilla, wood, whisky, malts. Malty flavor, smoky, vanilla, in finish more wood. Short dry finish. Unusual, the complexity doesn’t really match with the low ABV, but not bad.

Great stout, lots of coffee and oak. Cherry. The whisky is not easy to recognize, but that shouldn’t be a problem. Nice oak-aged beer with some peat in the aftertaste. Benzai (15726) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Very dark brown color, small beige head. Aroma has something really weird in it. Don’t know what to think really. Weird. Taste malts, some oak, a light sourness. Medium body, thin texture, ok carbonation. DutchDrebus (6031) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle @ home. Muddy black with no real head. Smells slightly sour, red fruits, oak. Tastes red fruits like cherries, oak, woods, chocolate in the aftertaste. I can’t find the whisky though. Thin to medium body, soft carbo. Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
A clear almost black colored beer, with a foamy beige head. The aroma ofdark malt wit fruits. A little wood . The taste of dark malt some vanilla, with dark malt, notes of whisky with a bitter. The after has sweet wit wood notes and a gentle bitter.
