3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A pale golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of phenol, wood, and whiskey. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of phenols, wood, smoke, peat, and whiskey - too much for me.

Clear yellow coloured with a snall white head.
Aroma of malts, caramel, butterscotsch and hops.
Flavour of malts, caramel, smoke, hops and grape fruits.

Not very fond of the combination of IPA and cask aged whisky.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Islay whisky cask in the nose and also some slight fruity notes. Flavour is pretty much oakbarrel, smoke and very islay whiskyish. Not much left of any IPA-like notes in the flavour.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear golden, small head. Oaky woody whisky aroma. Medium sweet and a bit fruity with solid body. Plenty of hoppy grapefruit underneath the shisky. Long very salty bitter finiah. While the marriage between the intense hops and whisky is a stormy one, it’s tough to host to so strong personalities in one bottle, it still works out OK. One of the most schizophrenic beers I’ve head.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
9th May 2008. Strong smokey whiskey flavours battle with fruity hops. It’s bit of a shock but it does just about work.

Cloudy golden color, small head. The aroma is less strong than I remember, but still nice; there is light peaty aroma, malt, paper, hop. Good caramel flavor, on the dry side, with strong oily bitterness and some smoke; but all these elements are mixed together quite chaotically. Strong final. Good but not impressive like the first time I tried it.
Hazy golden color. Very nice peaty aroma, with shades of vanilla and paper. Medium body strength, good toffee-caramel-malt flavor, on the dry side, with a very good hopping, balanced, with dry resins; and the nice smokey touch. Balanced and long final. Dangerously drinkable. A beautiful idea.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Guilford Arms Ebinburgh... think the cask is Aardberg ... Crisp clear golden orange definte whiskey in this ... and it overpowers ... forcing its way to front ... dry hop linger with the whiskey leaveing a falvoursome coating in mouth ... this build and builds. Maybe if you enjoy whiskey you will like this... but for me . NO. Couldnt drink more than 1 inch out of the glass.
