UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Cookie (ontap) - Sour sweet wood vanilla whiskey barrel age aromas. Brown red colour, nice head and large suds lacing. Big vanilla oaked spice, light sweet roast malt flavour. Spiced vanilla sour berry fruit finish, that lingers nicely into the aftertaste.

One of the best beers I’ve ever had the pleasure to treat my mouth too. With the right choice of using Islay Whiskey, it leaves one with the satisfaction of going home feeling like they had three glasses of scotch when really they had the refreshing sextuplet tulips of a great tasting beer.

On tap at Cookie. Great mouthfeel. Aromas of bacon, caramel, hints of
liquorice. Taste is sweet, with light bitter and sour notes, and long
length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

On tap at The Scratch. Lots of whiskey aromas see out of the glass and the taste is somewhat whiskey like as well. Deep copper colour with a earthy peaty smoked aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has lots of complex whiskey notes, as well as its own peaty and malty aromas. Appearance is a deep red-brown with a nice reddish-tan head. Taste is peaty, malty and a touch hoppy. The palate reflects all this and is a long and evolving journey through the mouthfeel. Really good!
