3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from 0.75 l bottle at RBBSG 2016 in Evergem. Minimally hazy, golden amber with a white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly peaty aroma of caramel, honey and some peat. Sweet-malty, slightly peaty taste of caramel, honey and peat, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite peaty finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Off-balanced, don’t really like it.

Taste & body are rather thin, bit fizzy,… Smoked basic malt, leaves, fizzy, herbal, low oak, sugar,… Thin fizzy, far too plane & simple. Rather bland & thin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ Ratebeer Belgian Summer Gathering 2016. Clear orange color, average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly grainy, light smoke I guess coming from the whiskey malts, definitely some whiskey / whiskey malt influence. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Old rating from 2013. Pours a slightly hazy reddish orange with a thigh tan head. The smell is caramel, fruit, quite malty, chocolate milk. The taste is Slightly sour fruit, cherries, caramel and it ends dry and fruity. Strange stuff. Light/medium in body with average carbonation. Not very good and likely infected.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Orange-amber colored, sparkling and cloudy with a lot of sediments floating around. The head is full frothy and tan. Smoked aroma in the nose with notes of wood, but there is distinctive whiskey aroma. However the aroma is quite complex and contains beside the smokey notes, sweet malty caramel notes along some plum as well as more floral and spicy hoppy notes. The taste is sweet and become light bitter in the end, very pleasant with some peppery alcoholic warmth. The body is medium with medium carbonation. Like in the nose there is no Whiskey in mouth however there is well balanced but rich flavor profile which has similarities to Doppelbock with it sweet plum and caramel notes. These are balanced by the hoppy floral and bitter finish and make the beer very harmonic. It leaves a light but long and pleasant aftertaste.
