sarauckelman (232) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is relatively weak, with hints of coffee and whiskey. Flavor is a good solid stout, accented with coffee and whiskey. The palate is a bit astringent. Well-crafted, but not exceptional.

Bottle. As Shire Stout Whiskey Barrel. It pours a huge, light beige colored head that leaves lacings. The beer is dark brown in color, clear looking and with aromas of dark chocolate dominating. Some dried fruits and a hint of booze as well. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and a boozy hint in the mouth, full-bodied and with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting roasted finish with chocolate, coffee and some whiskey. Surprisingly, this is even more boring than the regular edition, although marginally. 140530

RW80 (1056) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: Unclear black colour, beige head. Aroma: roasted malts, coffee, hocolate licorice,,oak and some boozyness Taste: Roasted malts some chocolate and some coffee with quite some licorice notes. Littel hints of oak, and quite some boozy alcohol in the finish. medium body (thin for it’s style) above average (slighly over)carbonated. Not as good as the non barrel aged version, too much of hit and miss in the tastes and palae is a bit off.

caesar (5500) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Bottled as Whiskey Barrel Aged, bottled 17-01-2013, large sample, served in a TeKu. Ingredients mention coffee, gale, juniper berries, vanilla. Pours a dark brown color with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, chocolate, caramel, some oak wood, licorice, some dark fruit, raisin. Medium sweet in taste, bit dry, slight spicy bitterness. Quite high in carbonation, bit thin in body. Dont get the whisky barrel that much. Not too impressed to be honest.
