What started as an experiment has now grown into a hip trend and actually a new beer style. Needless to say, we’ve ended up with tough guys, so some caution is in order. However, those who dare to take on this challenge will be rewarded extra for their audacity.

In this tasting we look for the ultimate taste pleasure based on seven whiskey beers.
