3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of whiskey and vanilla and English malts. This tasted like an English bitter to me with some rum or whiskey poured in with it. Very bitter sweet palate and hard to drink quickly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
clear glass....do I need a glass? Yeah i guess so. Pours a watery looking light amber. no head. no action. Aroma of a grolsch like lager and oak. Hint of whiskey.Nice smooth oaky flavor but it still reminds me of a german/european lager. The whiskey is very present and surprisingly smooth. Nice smoothness and a light [,lager like] flavor. The ABV will sneak right up on you but this beer, although very easy to drink isn’t a beer I want to keep drinking.

Bottle, 33cl. Pours an ochre-bronze, with quickly disappearing thin head. Honey, citrus, malt and toffee on the nose, and quite oakey on the palate. Low carbonation, nicely blended alcohol in the mouthfeel, with sour tail. Unusual, but quite decent.

Bright copper with lasting ring. Toasty toffee woodsy whiskey coffee-cake aroma. Malty toasted toffee flavor with mild whiskey barrel and British hop. Medium body and carbo. Fairly complex and tasty. I like the whiskey barrel again of this. I could drink many of these.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bottle from the Scottish Pub in downtown Savannah, GA. Pours a clear orange with low carbonation and a thin, white head. This is quite a change of pace. Nose is vanilla, cream soda, oak, honey. Taste is very creamy- pretty much really good cream soda albeit alcoholic. Aftertaste is a little sour. Very oily on the palate. Interesting and I would recommend it to others. 11/1/2008 5/3/7/4/14=3.3
330mL courtesy of beerandblues2. Poured a clear gold with really no head formation. Aroma is macro lager, sharp import macro lager metallic, butter, light whiskey. Taste is smooth, bourbon heavy, lots of butter. Pretty interesting but not integrated very well. Overall comes off as much too sweet and heavy on old toffee malts. Body has too many brewing flaws (diacetyl) that the barrel aging attempts to cover up. 2/12/2011 4/2/6/3/10=2.5
