330ml bottle pobres in a chatice. The beer description is: "This hand made Ale is brewed with the very finest ingredients, great care and respect. The Ale is matured in oak Whisky casks which creates a unique, aromatic, exceptional flavour." Cask references: Type: Barrel Wood: Bourbon Oak Whisky: Scotch Malt Vintage: 1989 Age: 21 years Region: Lowland (55* 55’ N / 4* 29’ W) A: Looks pretty much like the 35 (the first I’ve tasted). A dark brown color and a huge beige head when poured. Medium retention and many lacings left S: Very woody and Whisky. Stronger than the 35, but not that much. Roasted malts T: Follows the nose: wood and whiskey. Very tasty, however, much less sweet than the 10. Very pleasant and smooth. A little bit sour and bitter in the end. Less bitter than the 35 version, nevertheless M: Medium body and carbonation. Mild bitter aftertaste. Whisky aftertaste. O: Delicious beer. Really recommended to beer and Whisky lovers [ BA Review @ 1/25/2012 ]
