3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2010 Re-rate: Been a while since I saw this. Still an interesting beer, but a bit thin. Seems to vary greatly from bottle to bottle; we had 4 bottles and they were all different in carbonation, texture and flavor.
Sampled at LCBO Summerhill Beer Festival, Toronto ON. Read the deScription and wanted immediately to try it, wasn’t let down. I don’t know how much it tastes like actual whiskey - and I am a scotch drinker - but it was very good. Lots of vanilla and toffee, sweet but quick finish. Would be easy to drink a couple of these after a big meal - Christmas maybe?

Bottle. Light unclear amber orange color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate to heavy toffee and butter, vanilla, honey, oak, wood, light citrus Flavor is moderate sweet with a long duration. Very nice and smoth. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat to soft. Very nice ;o))

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I tried this on July 5, 2007 after purchasing it at my local LCBO store. It was a nice pretty clear bottle. The beer poured a coppery red colour into the glass with a 1 finger creamy white head that dissipated quickly to leave a little trace on top. The smell was rather foul to say the least....almost sour. The mouthfeel is crisp and slightly thick with an idea level of carbonation. The taste is good with some hints of malt and fruit (although I can’t place the sweetness off-hand).

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2008 330ml bottle. pours amber with little white head that quickly dissapears. aromas of vanilla, oak barrel, malt, scotch whisky and sweetness. flavours are the same as these things combine into a perfect balance of smooth complexity. this beer is fantastic and never lets you down.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Rating is the average of three very different ratings.
Massively buttery aroma. Taste similar. Really buttery. Tiny hint of mustard, but the finish is mostly whisky. Fairly well balanced. Not a wow any more, but at least thenot as nasty as the last one.
What the heck have they done to this? Butter, mustard, cabbage. Quite acidic. This is rank.

Rich amber, small head. Vanilla, oak, malt, butter, whisky, ... Oh screw it, words cannot describe this beer, it’s just so mellow and smooth and warm and inviting. Beautiful.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Warm amber and a nice, golden head. The aroma has notes of vanilla and freshly chipped oak. The flavour has the same notes and a sweetness and a note of tannic acid and citrus. The sweetness and vanilla is a biit too dominant for me.

bottle. Copper colour, tiny head. Smoky and malty nose. Malty beer with lots of flavours, especiall flavours reminiscent of whisky, caramel, honey, roasted malt an vanilla. Very complex brew, but highly enjoyable.
