4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 2010-03-16. Bottle #16251. This beer has the crazy-ass, over-the-top, mega-nice, undenyable honour of being the 400th beer, I rate. Let me walk you through the experience; I open the fancy cardboard box. I pull out the equally fancy bottle. I apply the back end of my dinner fork to the cap. Fzzzzz!!! A spicy, malty, vinous scent rises from the bottle and violin music immediately start to appear from nowhere. Squirrels appear. Birds place themselves by my window. My wife starts dancing uncontrollably and without knowing excactly why (but she does that alot). Then I pour... A clear, amber liquid beautifully fills my tumbler, covering itself with an off-white layer of soft, care free foam. I stick my nose in the tumbler while every being in the country holds their breath. I smile. They breathe the breath of relief. I start to mumble about a complex mixture of raisins, sweet malts, funky sourness, vanilla, whiskey, wood, cookies, angles and happiness. I take that first sip... Eh... It’s OK.

Pours amber, off white head. Nice nose of whiskey, oak, raisin. Golden syrupy flavour initially. Full bodied flavour of raisin and caramel, nice smooth progression of flavour. A great, balanced whiskey beer, with both complimenting each other.

The aroma is a bit sour in a nice way. The colour is amber and it has a huge head. Flavor is very sour, which is very interesting. There is no trace of the oak!!

20th December 2008. Hand labelled advance bottle courtesy of Rich at Utobeer. Cloudy brown beer. Lively and tangy with just a light touch of whisky and wood. Crisp dry finish. Warming afterglow from the whisky. Just a tad different.
