The biggest thing about this beer is just how subtle and balanced the beer is. Yes you can taste the whisky but its a passing note, you can taste the beer that is the basis of the bottle. Its sweet its deep its lovely. cgarvieuk (26422) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2013

Pours a deep burnt umber with a trace of khaki foam. The nose is spicy whisky soaked wood, chocolate syrup, herbal cola and earthy toffee and leather. The palate follows the nose with ripe dark fruit mingling with dark chocolate roast, really complex spicy booze and some soft coconut roundness lingers with the sweet finish.

Tap at the birch. Pours opaque black, small brown head, some lacing. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, peat, smoke, coffee. Flavor is the same, quite peaty, but the stout flavors comes through as well. Light sweet, light plus bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice balance. aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2013
Aroma of dark dried fruits, chocolate, whiskey, wood, vanilla. The flavour is very much the same. Very well balanced. dmac (6592) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle from Eileen. Poured an oily pitch black body with a smaller creamy deep beige head. Aroma sweet smoke, sherry, wood, dark berries, dark molasses and soy sauce. Full bodied with average carbonation and some heat. Flavor is smoke, sherry, cask, soy, black olives, bad dark chocolate. Interesting sipper. devman171 (1223) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2013
