SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours black with no head. The aroma is a strange mix of dark malts, some whisky, maybe some smoke. The flavor is slightly sweet, not as complex or interesting as some of their others.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
Der Geruch ist ein Mittelding zwischen Imperial Stout und schön holzigem Whisky. Schon der Antrunk ist komplex-tiefgehend. Tolle schokoladen-kaffe Aromen des Imperial Stout zusammen mit einer milden Holzigkeit des Speyside-Whiskys. Der Hauptteil wird etwas herber, die schönen Stout-Aromen treten hinter der Herbe etwas zurück. Zum Nachgeschmack wird das ganze wieder schön rund und sehr interessant komlex. Zum Schoko-kaffe kommt eine schöne milde Holznote, die aber etwas mehr ausgeprägt sein könnte. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine Holzig-vanillige Schoko-Kaffe Note
→ Auch eine sehr nette Bier-Whisky Kombination, aber mir persönlich hat die Kombination mit dem in Grain-Whisky Fässern gelagerten Bier besser gefallen. Da waren die Holzaromen mit den Whisky-Vanille Aromen viel besser ausgeprägt. Trotzdem lecker. 13+12+12+12

jbruner (2160) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a thick black from the bottle with minimal bubbly tan head that doesn’t leave lace. Aroma is heavy on the whiskey, oak and peat, with a hint of vanilla behind it. Taste follows, add a bit of chocolate and roast. The barrel on this went a little overboard and take over the stout, which is also kind of thin. Not bad, but not great.

AdamJackson (2380) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Almost black, minimal boring head. Nose is super sweet, some chocolate and caramel not much booziness on the nose. Thin taste, lots of oak, some tobacco and charred wood. Bitter medicinal finish with some residual sweetness. "best by 09" obviously well past it’s prime

Scopey (6239) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to CGarvie! It pours deep brown with a reddish hue and a small quickly dissipating beige head. The nose is earth, wood, mellow roast, light smoke, dates and stewed cherry. The taste is roasted malt, cocoa, earth, spice, oxidised notes, light bitteress, rubber, cracked black pepper, dust and coffee grinds with a very dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great to try, but over the hill methinks.

BenH (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottle thanks Craig. Dark brown with small ring of head. Smelling quite oxidised, sherry, dark fruits. Taste of rich dark fruits, chocolate. Little sweet woth a clean finish. Nice

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Black with a almost no head. Big earthy, peaty, scotch and chocolate aroma. Nice smooth scotch, oak, peat, chocolate, and sweet caramel flavors with a dry chalky finish and an oily medium bodied palate.
