harrisoni (18817) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury. Deep chestnut colour with thin off white head. More toffeeish that the regular version, buttery. Not a huge whisky presence or indeed wood flavour. A lot of greasy melted butter. No huge aroma. Again not impressed. OK, but what is it?

johndoughty (5472) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2007
Golden and poured with a large head.No lacing and lots of slightly smoked vanilla swirling around. Sharp clean taste with none of the overpowering sweeetness beers of this strength sometimes have. Not that distinctive but still quite pleasant.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2007
Very disapointd here. Aroma was ovrly malty toffee apples with a touch of ethenol. Tastw was similar with alcohol quite present though carbonation does try to hide it.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2007
Sweet caramel and toffee nose with a subtle underlying alcohol. Pours pure amber. Flavour carries on where the nose left off, with sweet malt and raisins interplaying with whisky and some astringent ethanol. It’s ok, but the finish is sharp and the alcohol not as disguised as it claims on the box. Not a bad beer but not amazing.

boltonmark (9) - Uppingham, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2007 does not count
The initial gentle flavour of toffee is replaced with hint of whisky - a bit too strong - lovelly beer though

rauchbier (3901) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle. Copper bronze, good lasting white head and moderate condition. Vaguely fruity and woody in the nose with hints of whisky, peppery herbal hops and slight vinegar citric notes, quite full and sweet in the mouth with hints of vanilla woodiness and whisky oxidation note, sligtly dry and woody finish with some sweet caramel.

veringer (7) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2006 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Enjoyed this in Edinburgh. Amber honey color, with thin head. It’s exactly what you’d expect a good unpeated single malt to taste like if you perfectly married it with beer. Sweet carmel, a little smoke, and slightly acidic finish.

cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2006
Lots of toffee and sweet malts in there with the whiskey touch coming through quite clearly. Good to look at, good to drink and certainly a departure from other oak aged beers, rare as they are.

Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 23, 2006
It says Blonde but anyway, it was good, a little more creamy than the one in the bottle, it was too alcoholic.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2006
Bottled. Some vanilla and slight bubblegum. Over oaked. Like a poor man’s malt - over accentuated. Drinkable but touristy.
