A probably crazy idea came to my mind:
As whisky is kind of distilled beer, what about a mix of whisky with beer? Before I try that, is there anybody out there who experienced such a mix? The question is which whisky would suit to which beer and what amount of whisky to take. I think it should not be too much.
All Scotch purists please don't hate me!
Jameson is the best whisky to have with beer.
but then I realised you mean IN beer.
Well, if the choice is whisky & Coke and whisky & beer, theoretically I think the latter will make me puke a bit less.
Seriously, I don't think it's THAT crazy an idea. Less so than "whisky & cheese", as seen in a recent edition of Whiskymag... ;P
When all is said and done, we won't know until we've tried and if there are more ways to enjoy whisky than neat or with a splash of water - hoo-fucking-ray! - I'll try it in a heart-beat.

P.S. Only good reason for that drink that I can come up with, at least in Finland in the old days, was to get more alcohol into beer due to high taxes for beers with higher alcohol levels. With that drink you got cheaper stonger beer in the bars.

My experience is that beer kills complex whisky, but can add complexity to good, straightforward drams. Usually I prefer to let the whisky chase the beer aftertaste, but try the other way around as well.
