A partnership between the Black Wolf Brewery and Tullibardine distillery has produced something special - a unique beer with a light whisky aroma and clean fresh aftertaste. Once bitten, forever smitten.

daje (2047) - NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle, june 13th 2013. Unclear light amber body, quickly disappearing white head. At least I think it was white, by the time Iíd noted the beer name and lifted the glass it had all vanished. Never a good sign. Light aroma, some peated malt, wood, apples and whisky. Not bad, just have to look hard to find it. Indeed, bad is a word Iíd rather use to describe the taste. First itís very sweet caramel malt, now whatís wrong with that you might ask, nothing, the fault lies in the seriously way too strong whisky with water taste that comes up next and overshadows everything else. Itís probably not a good whisky cask used either. I donít mind a whisky but I like my beers to have beer elements in the taste. If I want whisky & water I pour my self exactly that. Ok Iím being harsh here as in the aftertaste, when the alcohol taste leaves thereís actually a nice, though a bit too astringent, wood barrell taste that I donít mind. Itís just too little, too late.

jesperhammer (2843) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2013
28-JUN-2013, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer, present from MinitÝserne. Clear copper with quickly dying almost white head. Aroma is weak whisky and sweet malt. Taste is Smoke, whisky, caramel, toast. Very low bitterness. Thin body, soft carbonation. Not really complex despite the whisky.

Imaena (1811) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. I really did not enjoy this beer. The whisky maturation does not seem to have had a positive impact on the beer overall.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 9, 2013
0,33l bottle as gift. Clear, deep golden colored beer with medium, frothy, white head. Basicly alcohol and malt aroma. Some molasses and some wooden flavour also appears. Basicly itís dry, but the alcohol gives it some sweetness. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation. Alcoholly and dry finish. A classic malty ale with alcohol, malt and liqueur flavour.

jbruner (2181) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a hazy golden orange with a creamy white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, toffee, caramel, vanilla, a hint of bourbon. Taste follows, medium body, add some light fruitiness and sweet candied sugar. Nothing special.
