A one-off at the Copper Hog, Bellingham, WA. Aged, I believe, in Dry Fly, whiskey barrels, served from firkin. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear dark amber color, very still with no head.

The aroma was the nice grain of the base beer, with just enough whiskey showing through to be interesting. On the tongue, the beer was a pleasant surprise, the whiskey matched the solid Pale just right. Some good grains, some tart hops,and the whiskey balanced everything nicely.

The body was nicely medium, smooth and had a very clean finish. Drinkability was nearly excellent, I had a couple and was sad indeed when the firkin was empty. Overall, a very good experiment. I hope the brewery takes a chance on doing this on a larger scale. It would be a very popular beer indeed.
