4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark orange-gold; small white rim. Walnuts, cognac, old Bourbon casks, sweet almondcake aromaís. Dried apricots, overripe fruit, sweet but nowhere cloying, extremely complex taste, with whisky barrels, peppery & sweet in the finish, even Szechuan pepper. Warming up, dark raisins, very " ít Anker"-like. Very alcoholic, and very slick: obviously really quite thick, but feeling thinner. Excellent, superbly complex, and yet well-balanced beer. One of the best Scottish ever had. BIG thanks to Craig for this gem!

Hoppy and slightly oaked aroma. Some carbonation. Golden coloured very smooth on the palate and creamy with a hint of dryness and bitterness in a woody and whisky flavoured finish.

Bottle. Yellow and poured with a small head leaving no lacing. Medium body with a slight spirit like sharpness. Some maltiness as well.Donít usually think too highly of beers with a scotch element to them but this is one of the better ones.In fact its a pretty decent beer.

Scored a couple of bottles at a whisky fair. Hardly any smell or head, but delicate and complex taste. Tastes more like beer than like whisky, unlike many other "whisky beers".

Fwoahr. I really like this. However, it doesnít have much in the looks department - a clear , light amber body with pretty much nonexisting head. Then again it would just distract from the fantastically complex aroma of burnt caramel, citrus peel, wet wood and a hint of smokiness.
To me the flavour wasnít really like whiskey although I do follow that idea. Iím getting oak, orange peel (again) and an exceptionally smoky aftertaste, that I donít think Iíve ever experienced before. Abit more fullbodied and this would have been a real winner.

At May Ratebeer London Gathering at Chris Oís. Gold with a small white head. Malty alcoholic aroma. Sweetness blends with sourness in the taste along with the tang of alcohol. A little bitterness. Very nice, despite the fact itís Scotch, not Scotttish.

This is a fun beer. The head lingers for a few pulls. The whisky comes through nice on the flavour. Very smooth finish. The mouth feel on the finish is almost alkaline in nature. Cleanses the palate. Great whisky aroma. I donít mind that itís not a traditional scotch ale. Iím not a fan of the huge malts, this is gentle and accessible. Something youíd enjoy as a digestif, except itís a beer! Brilliant!
