Aroma of sweet malt and some toffee. Light.
Taste is equally as sweet at first but goes into a decent hop bitterness.

330ml Flasche. Klar und dunkelgolden mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Etwas muffig. Süßlich. Mild. Leichter Körper. Bamsen78 (5451) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle, 16 months past the BBD. Pours hazy orangeish amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with dusty and hoppy notes. Dusty onset with sweetish notes of yeast and malt and some fruity and acidic hints. Bitter touches of hops. Estery aftertaste with dusty hints. Not that bad for the style. Nothing illuminating, though.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2017 A bottle from Citysuper in the basement of Sogo at Zhongxiao Fuxing, drunk at home. Aroma: vegetable, slightly sour. Appearance: a lovely clear dark amber, practically no head. Palate: medium-bodied, rather oily texture, soft carbonation. The finish is astringent, noticable boozy for its ABV - is this the barrels? Taste: I can’t decide if it’s sweet or sour. I’m going to have to mark this one down, as I can’t abide whiskey, and the booze leaves a slightly unpleasant afterburn. Nevalainen (791) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Expiracy date sep.2015. Cloudy orange color with white head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Light sweet taste of caramel and maybe whiskey. It has too light body to be a really good beer. Maits (508) - ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2016
