Enjoyed in the lovely Whiski bar in Edinburgh, only served in half-pints due to the percentage. Most enjoyable, not too strong a taste for a 7% beer. Actually quite light for a dark beer. Loved it.

This one poured a light yellow colour with almost no head. Scents of oak, wine and vanilla. First swig was smooth and creamy. Finish was nice and oaky with a light smokey flavour lingering. Bygers (1184) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2015

This has a really interesting taste. It's a little woody. And really delicious. Light golden yellow appearance.

Bottle at Porch Nite thanks to Raith. Pours a clear amber with one finger of white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, some oak. Slight alcohol. Nice beer. Fritz123 (1597) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter. Golden-brown pour with light head. Mostly clear. Aroma of oak cask, booze, toffee, malts, and leather. Taste similar. Booze flavor isn’t as strong as the aroma. Toffee, leather, malted barley, oak, must. Smooth mouth. Malty finish. Very nice. DocJitsu (2036) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a clear, rich, bourbon golden color with a short beige head. I hate when a pretend know it all about beer (at World of Beer) server pours my beer out of the bottle for me without asking. Aromas of toasty malt, sweet fruit, and hints of sassafras. Smooth, mellow, moderately thick mouthfeel. Mildly scrubby. Oaky vanilla up front. Sweet fruit, but not too sweet. Toasted malt adds to the lingering, yet mild sweetness. Very good beer. fitzpatm (1) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2013 does not count
Too sweet, like soda sweet. Dark amber appearance, aroma is sweet. I’m a bit disappointed by the body, expected more body with mellow oak overtones. Not an overwhelming flavor when drinking with a sweet oak finish.
