Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a thick white foamy head. Nose is plenty of skunk, some earthiness and herbal notes, a bit of whiskey/oaky character. Palate is surprisingly broad, nice mild whiskey oak character, skunky hops continue. A cross between Heineken and Innis & Gunn. Okay, but I have had many other oak-aged beers I liked better. Seems overly carbonated.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
Bright rich copper body with zero cap not a single bubble is floating on top this looks ungood. Woody alcohol aroma with moderate hop. The smell is awesome and rich on big deep inhales. Apple flavour on first sip followed by alcohol burning the throat with a bready after taste. Flavour seems empty mostly contains vanilla oak, and whisky. When I hold the brew in my mouth a nice hop bite starts to show up. Flavour is ok I guess just kind of watered down. I think I might enjoy this beer maybe?

330ml green bottle. Golden coloured, small white head. Sweet and malty nose with a slight whisky character. Flavour is sweet malts, toffee, noticable whisky, some woody notes. Finish was lingering whisky, some caramel malt. Medium body.

JoeZasada (307) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2009
Pours a cloudy yellow with a dissapearing white head. Smells of oak. Tastes of oak, with minimal hops and malt. Kind of thin. Not really much whiskey taste... a lot like Innis & Gunn but thinner.

GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Thanks, Cheeseman! Pours a light golden color with a hint of orange. Aromas are whiskey and malts. Flavor is more of the same. Fairly light tasting with a slight sweetness hitting first and a lingering aftertaste that isn’t too pleasant.

Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Clear light orange color with a very thin soapy head. Sweetish whiskey aroma over toasted grains, not a lot of heavy malts as in a traditional Scotch. Very basic taste - a golden ale with some whiskey tones.
