Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Not to much head, has the look of light maple syrup. Some smoke and dough odor, gives impression of something stronger. Starts smooth, but falls out in the finish. Probably would be better on tap. Not for everyone.

Bottle. Poured a copper color with a faint white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma was caramel, sweet malts, and bread. Flavor was buiscuit, faint hops, and caramel. Something just didnt go with this one. Average beer at best. Thin body.

wlajwl (6145) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Earthy and smoke in the aroma while the appearance is similar to an EPA in appearance. The flavor is of caramel and a hint of smoked peat. The overall taste of this is similar to a light barley wine, its pretty good, unique.

Leighton (19841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle with Nick. Pours clear gold with a big, white head. Sugary, malty aroma. Medium sweet flavor, bread, cereal, slight herbs. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugar, malt and cereal finish. Pretty sweet. One-dimensional but OK.

wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2011
Pours copper with a small offwhite head. Fruity aroma with raisins. Flavor is bitter caramel, nothing whisky related at all, but still rather drinkable

mansquito (5849) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2011
MacArthur Beverages, DC 330ml ($1): Pours a copper color with a one finger head that leaves lacing. Weird aroma... kind of like a scotch ale or an English Strong Ale, with all them malts, bubblegum, and other weird things. Taste is pretty much the same thing, although it is a little bit on the thin side of things. There are almost no hops in this beer at all. A little sweetness is there as well. Weird and maybe a little old.

Mellonius (73) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAY 21, 2011
Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Beautiful amber color showing very good head formation and retention, with heavy lacing. Smell is heavily malty, with all sorts of grains, including rice (?). Couldnt find any notes that reminded me of whisky, though. Good carbonation, with a light to medium bodied feel. Taste is fairly rich, bringing some citrus notes over a heavily malty background. Bitterness is adequate. Quite well balanced. Made me want to drink it again.
