Bottle: Slightly hazed golden amber appearance, moderate head formation. Woody, fruity apple aroma. Lightly hopped fruity flavor, dry spice and woodiness. Starts out interetsing but just dies after a few sips.

Light color,as in a whiskey and water.Oak-bourbon nose with a little vanilla maybe some sour notes.Flavor is what you expect with the oak vanilla but also a sourness that is almost a "What is that flavor? " thing going on.

Light amber orange with no head and clear appearance, almost champange like in it’s carbonation. Light honey, oak, molasses, vanilla, skunk and hops on the nose. Light mouthfeel with strong sparkle and dry finish. Very citrus like with vanilla, wood, light cherry, and well all in all peculiar flavor. Hmmm, not sure if I need another, but glad I tried it thanks Eric!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber coloured, thin white head. Toffee and caramel aroma with a flavour of vanilla, whisky, and buttery aroma. flavour shows lost of oaky character, malt, alcoholic heat slips in along with some whisky character, but it is quite subtle. Oaky finish. Would have benefited from more body.

Bottled. Dark amber. Aroma of honey and oak. Sweet and clean with obvious cask character. Notes of vanilla and sugar. Low bitterness. Too light bodied. Lovely aroma, but a bit empty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Light amber colour , with an off white head. The aroma did immediately remind me of whiskey, also sweet caramel and fruits. The taste doesn’t disappoint; definitely whiskey in there again, sweet malts, with strong warming alcohol right at the end. Full bodied. Very interesting and excellent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toffee colour, which you can see through the clear bottle, with a huge tight white head. Aroma is sweet and almost whisky-like.Flavour has strong sweet maltiness with, yes, some vanilla and almost no bitterness. A long finish containing a strong alcohol presence. Quite good but way overpriced.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2004 330ml Bottle. A nice idea, there have been some nice beers aged in whisky barrels that I have had. It started with a nice fruity, sweet aroma. Sadly the taste was sweet, toffee and vanilla. Not much hop bitterness in the swallow. A good beer, worth a try.

Copper whisky colour, almost no head. Sweet, oaky aroma, whiskyish, honeyish, malty and vanilla palate. Too sweeet...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet looking medium dark amber clear with a small off white head. Medium strong biscuity malt aroma on immediate opening of bottle. The oak and a hint of vinous bourbon and hops comes through as it warms. Medium light pleasing crisp clean mouth feel on initial swallow but it has a slight cloyiness and oiliness at the finish otherwise I would have rated this a 4 or even 5 on palate. Flavour is light candy stronger biscuity malt sweet at the start becoming more sour mash malt and whiskeyish toward the finish and a light bitter and malt aftertaste. One of the most interesting beers I have tried in a long while.
