Launched as Tullibardine 1488 Whisky Ale
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.

tommann (3264) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours dark gold with no head. Aroma is lemonade, vanilla and faint whisky. Taste has flat lemonade to start and a toffee malt finish.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2013
Flaske, 50 cl, tak Ole Ø. Kobberfarvet og klar, lille hovede. Whiskey? Sød maltsuppe uden ret meget duft og næsten endnu mindre krop. Stor skuffelse.

Vignale (3199) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Amber coloured with low offwhite head. Little toffee and buttery flowers on the nose. The 7% are well hidden which usually is a good thing, but the to sweet caramelbody is rather plain. A little hint of EKG-like hops with flowerlike scents but almost no bitterness at all. Small resembles of lowland whiskey and a little vanilla, but to sum up, a beer soon forgotten.

Bottle. Golden colour. Not really my favourite, but better than other whisky beers.

Lowenbrau (3132) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Wood, malty aromas. Pours hazy light amber, with white head, vanishing, no lacing. Light to medium body. Taste is malty, wood, vanilla, whisky, not very well balanced.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2006
(Bottle) pours light amber with almost no head. Red wine aroma with buttery, oaky tones. Notes of butterscoch, also a bit acid. Flavour starts really buttery/fudgey and sweet but continues pretty wine-ish with dry notes at the end. Elderberry tartness. Really unique, but not so good.

Gerbeer (3020) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas of light smoke, wood, and light malts. Flavors of very watery smoky scotch and fruit. Not sure what this is but its easy to quaff.

gegwilson (3003) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours golden with a thin white head. The taste is fairly fruity citrus with smokey whiskey notes. There’s a fairly unpleasant dry after taste. Not good.

tomer (2849) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, smallush quickly dissapearing bubbly head, crystal clear very deep gold colour, dominant malty flavour with some fruity notes, biscuity fruity flavour with an alcoholic whiskey presence, light bitterness and quite sweet. True to the style but much too sweet.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 20, 2007
Bottled 50cl. It pours a copper beer with a quick diminishing white head. Lots of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The beer has a similar color to whisky. Wood, plums, peaches, walnuts, apples and almonds with a medicinal background. Plums, wood and apples in the taste. Strong white wine-like elements. The mouthfeel delivers quite a fizzy bite. Walnuts, anise and almonds in the taste too. The finish is dry peppery with hints of rose and anise. This beer is too sweet for my liking. Rather interesting and distinct, but it definately gets cloying after a few sips.
