Dark brown reddish tinge. Small tan head - mainly rim and wet lacing - that disappears. Aroma is oaky malt with mild chocolate and coffee. Taste follows suits but is quite tangy and a bit sweet (treacle?). More coffee and amped smoky oak notes and mild closing bitterness. Moist mouthfeel with very low carbonation. Unique but there are better stouts out there.

Review sample, label names it "Irish Whiskey Aged." Pours black, with very little fizz. Smell is warm and treacly, like a bit of whiskey and sugar stirred in hot water to relieve a cold. I am somewhat used to I&G’s house style by now: a lot of flavor from whatever was in the barrel, but not strong in alcohol. We’re talking "Bourbon and branch" here. And for a stout, the thread of whiskey keeps it very smooth. Sometimes it carries the impression of being Imperial strength, but that’s all in the taste buds.

alobar (3056) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours cola brown with no head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, and whiskey. Roasted malt flavor with toffee, vanilla, and hint of whiskey. Very nice beer.

VDuquerroux (608) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. @V&B Poitiers. A dark brown beer with a medium beige head ; average retention. Aroma of fruits (prune, grape), whisky, alcohol, roasty, caramel. Medium sweet ; light warming background. Bitter note. Medium voluptuous body, thin body, avergae to soft "smooth" carbonation, sweet fruity finish. Overall, I enjoyed this beer a lot and it got better through the tasting : smooth, roast fruity.

Helsdon (274) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Very nearly, just, but not quite opaque that’s a very dark mahogany, with a little tan head that reduces to a ring in moments. The nose is whiskey with a little booze and mild roasted malts. The taste is similar to the nose - whiskey and vanilla. The roasted malt is surprisingly sweeter than I expected. The oak is firmly there. Not a challenging beer, but a tasty one.

Draught @ Brass Monkey. Inky black with small creamy dark beige head, slight whiskey aroma, thin body, medium carbonation, caramel taste with whiskey undertones, medium finish with coffee aftertaste. Smooth and easy to drink.
