mateuszk (2668) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle, 2014 edition. Pours (be careful - small gushing) brown/amber, very high head that quickly disappears. In aroma mainly malt, caramel, dried fruits and oaky, vanilla and bourbon notes. In taste sweet, malty, caramel with strong bourbon flavour and hints of fruits and oak. Full bodied, highly carbonated (overcarbonated actually) with warming alcohol. Finish is oaky with medium bitterness. Not bad but expectations were higher.

(Cask at White Horse, Parsonís Green, London, 22 Nov 2013) Very dark brown colour with brief, frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, dark fruit and chocolate. Quite vinous. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, port wine, a touch of bourbon and a fiery, vinous finish with a certain alcohol bite. Full body, fairly sweet. Lots of things going on here, very tasty with a certain bite. Very nice.

Gravity Dispense at the White Horse Old Ale fest, 22/11/13. Opaque dark mahogony brown with a good sized tan covering which retains well and leads to good lacing. Nose carries a good lick of whisky, roast malt, oaky dark fruit infusion, Xmas cake mix, light nutty waft. Taste comprises rich toffee fudge, subtle whisky presence, lick of booze - well integrated and not OTT, dark malt, brown sugars, oaky wood, dark fruit notes. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, light booze lick in the closure. Good stuff, subtle whisky notes, well balanced.

Cask at White Horse Old Ale fest 2013, Parsons Green, London. A dark brown coloured pour with a thin off white head on top. Not much aroma to this but slight dark fruit detected. Tastes dark fruit, slight caramel/sweetness, hardly noticed the alcohol.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
August 18, 2013 - handpull cask at The White Horse (Parsonís Green). Opaque brown/red, cloudy, not much head, but it was creamy and biege, what there was. Smells of oak and sweet caramel, some bitterness, a little chocolate and maybe even a hint of light molasses. Taste - like a Christmas chocolate toffee with alcohol in it, whisk(e?)y in fact, some oak tannin. Slick, average body, solid carbonation - a little boozy and a nice charred herbal bitterness emerging in the finish - sweet, but itís supposed to be, innit??

At Parsons Green with Harry. Hazy brown dark no head. Itís ok. Some barrel ageing. Some heat but alcohol isnít too obvious. Some syrup. Donít get a lot barrel ageing. Guess itís an Irish whiskey barrel.
