Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2012
In short: A straightforward caramelized malty beer with a moderate whisky presence. Good
How: Growler shared by and with the dude from Spider Bite, the ugly one. Post Tap-NY 2012 hotel tasting
The look: Almost clear dark ruby topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is rich malts and some bourbon/whiskey undertones. Taste is caramelized malts, moderate bourbon/whiskey presence, some vanilla. Not much oak presence, did not really taste like whiskey oak barrels, tasted more like a shot of whiskey added to the beer. Overall this was actually enjoyable and drinkable but also very straightforward, probably my least favourite Spider Bite so far. And what a disappointment to get a Spider Bite and still end-up with like zero superpowers.

Bottle back at the hotel at TAPNY courtesy of Paul. Pours a ruby brown with a light touch of haze under a thin beige head. Malt and caramel, light bourbon, oak and caramel. Sweet malt, touches of roast. Long sweetness, light oak and a gentle bitterness.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Draft. Pours deep brown with a thin head. Deep sweet malty aroma, with lighter notes of whiskey, toasted malts, and a little bit of nutty sweetness. The flavor has sweet malts, a touch of whiskey sweetness, some light vanilla sweetness, lightly roasted malts, and a hint of chocolate. Perfect use of the whickey/oak here; the Johnnie Walker provides some great support to the base beer, but doesn’t overpower or dominate. Another winner from Spider Bite.

italarican (1475) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2012
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a deep mahogany with minimal off-white head. Aroma has dark caramel and bourbon backloaded with vanilla. Soft vanilla sweetness throughout with dark caramel (maybe a little chocolate?), mild plum, and bourbon. A slight wood spice really is a nice touch. Moderately heavy mouthfeel. The vanilla and wood notes really make this.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 Draft at Blind Tiger. Pours a deep amber brown, nearly black body with no head, light lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, light whiskey, Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet malt, smoke, wood, a touch of dried dark fruit, and whiskey. Thanks Paul, another great beer.
