341 ml. Brune pas très foncé et brumeuse. Mince broue beige. Odeur et gout de whisky, caramel et d'alcool, avec une fin houblonneuse intéressante. La rondeur en bouche est bien aussi.
Je n'aime pas les bières qui goutent le whisky, mais elle me semble bien balancée.
Bottle shared by KBL. Poured a deep brown with eggshell foam. Sweet malty aroma, bready, dark fruit, herbal booze note. Malt forward, pleasant booze flavour and warmth, notes of toffee and nut on the backend. Very smooth, medium-bodied, great drinking on a cold winter’s eve.

Now with a much cooler label than this photo. It was an exceedingly clear red-brown in color with a rich malty plum aroma. Medium to full bodied and surprisingly mellow and smooth. Rich malty sweet caramel with lots of plum and stone fruits. Surprisingly easy to drink and everyone was astounded at how smooth it was. DrNosha (2947) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2017

Says 9.5% abv on this bottle. Pours an average amount of fizzy head but doesn’t stay long at all. Has a rusty amber colour, sort of like plum juice. Alcohol is quite noticeable. Aromas are bready and with notes of coffee. Flavours are light chocolate, raisins, plums, nuts and malts. Alcohol is also apparent in taste. Has a watery mouthfeel. Strong warming sensation as well as in the finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 341mL Bottle: Hazy brown amber, minimal to no white head that dissipated. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, bread, toast. Lots of sweet, slightly warming alcohol and a bit of bitterness. Medium body and carb, thin oily feel, and very nice nutty toffee slightly dry finish.

Bue en bouteille de 355ml. Nez sur l’alcool, le pruneau, les fruits noirs. Palais alcool, sucre, prunes. Grosse corpulence, et grande longueur en bouche. Pas trop mon style en fait, l’alcool est vraiment trop présent. Theydon_Bois (22092) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle split at Cotts Convention ii, thanks to team Cotts, 05/03/16.
Rich amber with a decent off white head.
Nose is nutty, dark fruit, Xmas cake, earthy.
Taste comprises dark fruit rinds, dates, light spice, fruit loaf.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close.
Ok but lacks any finesse.
