330ml bottle from the LCBO. Special thanks to my brother in law who works downtown Toronto for leaving work early to go pick this up for me. Pours black, with an almost black ring of foam. Aroma is big. Smell the whisky! Very rich, like a port. A nice unique drink. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle 235 thank you Derweg aka Belgian! Had this on our anniversary weekend retreat to Prince Edward County. Deep black pour, nice brown head. Fantastic whiskey aroma, earthy, wood. Taste is what all barrel aged beers should strive for: incredible balance of whiskey barrel hotness/sweetness + substantial body of beer behind it. Taste is so good - the hints of whiskey, lots of wood, plus the roast and wood of the original beer. I am not a fan of these barrel aged beers that I have had so far: of the 50 or so I have had, I’ve enjoyed 5. But this one is spot on and an amazingly complex drink. I actually found it very drinkable surprisingly. I wish I had more of this rare treat, it was so good. Thank you Jonas for the trade, the wait was worth it.
