As someone who absolutely loved Guillemot (it was the best beer I had when I visited TH) this was something of a letdown. It wasn’t BAD by any means, but the whiskey barrels seemed to muddle the nose a bit into less than the defined roasty character of the original Guillemot and the finish was substantially more acetic than in the base beer. Retained the nice raspberry jam flavor but just a lot harder to drink. Good but far from the masterpiece that base Guillemot is.
