Opaque black beer, good tan head. Crispy semi dry palate. Lots of minerals. Tangy dark malt. Sourish mild whisky. Trace of candy fruits. Very similar to Lambda but the whisky is more sour.

oliodnb (662) - ITALY - JAN 4, 2015
33cl bottle. Bottle 118 of 540, best before september 2013. Pours black with a thick beige head. Aroma is chocolate, sweet malts, vanilla, light acidity. Taste is similar with a very light whisky note and a strange lemon acidity. Some bitter coffee aftertaste along some saltiness. Medium body, light carbonation. A bit disappointing.

fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle 434 of 540 from A Tutta Birra, Milan, bb 19 Sept 2013
Pretty dark color, with brownish compact head. Mild aroma, some roasted malt, and some sourness; bit of alcohol. Slim body, with moderate roasted malt flavor and some sourness; very light smoke; no evidence of whiskey flavors; the roasted malt contributes to the bitterness, which is not strong. Maybe a trace of whiskey in the end.
Quite odd and unexpected; not exciting.

3.2
Koelschtrinker (20403) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 23, 2013
Rund malzig-säuerlicher Antrunk. Etwas laff, die Malznoten rücken in den Hintergrund. Sehr trocken, kaum Noten der Whiskeylagerung. Nicht alkoholisch, zum Ende milder säuerlich. Nett aber definitiv nicht mehr. 11/9/11/9//11

3.7
lembeek (143) - ITALY - SEP 23, 2012
Colore nero, poca schiuma evanescente. Al naso cioccolato, vaniglia, caffè, malto. Nel palato sapida, con sentori di liquirizia e note fruttate. Buona acidità.
