Atlanta Cask Ale tasting ’07
Pours black with a small brown head.
Coffee and whiskey dominate the aroma.
Smooth with a sweet whiskey finish.
One of the better ones at the tasting, Well balanced as all of the aroma and flavor components have a chance to play here with none overpowering another.

Pours a dark brown color with with a brown head. Aroma is malty with coffe notes in it. Beer is surprisingly complex for all the stuff in it. Nice coffee up front with some warming whiskey notes toward the end and finishes with some alcohol.

A highlight of the Cask Ale Fest for me. With all the crap they do to this beer you would expect it to knock you on the floor. It is surprisingly subtle in all its characteristics but you slowly taste the beer, then the coffee, then the whiskey, finishing with a slight alcohol taste. Leaves a slight sugary film on your lips. Very nice from these guys.

This won the Cask Ale Tasting in Atlanta this year. (2007) Very dark and oily. I smell the coffee and clearly smell the Jack. Not unbalanced, but the whiskey is prevalent. Very tasty beer.
