3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle poured in a snifter. Pours a brownish amber with a medium white head. Big oak and sour vanilla aroma. The vanilla was so overwhelming I wasn’t sure I could finish it. Taste was much better, though. Smooth crisp and malty with just hint of the vanilla and oak. Finishes dry with a slight oakiness. Interesting beer, but not worth what I paid for it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Dated 08 Jan 09. Dark copper amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly malt, much like Newcastle Brown. Medium body. Slightly sweet. Rather oaky. Mild, lightly spicey hop. Bitter builds with time. Leaves a tingle behind. Seems a bit of malt whisky notes. Pretty good.

But overall I still think it was an above average beer

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, BB West Kirby. Pretty nasty sweet, woody whisky flavour. Not what I really look for in a beer.
Seems somehow artifical. 77 day process? Don’t waste yer time.

330 ml bottle. Small white head. Clear, deep reddish / amber liquid. Lots of vanilla and sweet caramel malt. Low bitteration and sharp carbonatioin. Flavor is mostly sweet but dries up a bit in the slightly woody finish. Almost too sweet for me. Clear oak notes in the finish. A bit thin moutfeel.

Great beer. Tastes like a hint of Whiskey in it. This is because it is aged in oak barrels. Crisp flavour.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Looks like cream soda gold with a large white head. Aroma caught me off guard with a vinegar hint up front, before mellowing out into some softer notes of bourbon. Sweet flavor with lots of bourbon and some malt and toffee. Wow, plenty of woody notes. Still a little sweet comes through.
