OwainTurner (381) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Pours a cola colour with soapy head, softly dies down. Rich sweet aroma, cherries and berries. Taste is a little disappointing. Tastes a little under developed. Very smooth on the palate, silky. No sense of alcohol at all.

Probably the worst stout I have tasted. Poor head retention, looks like cola and also tastes like (probably not helped by the clear bottle). The saving grace is that it has a pleasant aroma and there is the definite aroma and taste of Irish whiskey.

Enjoyit (3566) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
Black of color with a beige head. An aroma of coffee, plastic, bitter liqurice, prunes and coal. A flavor of roasted malt, liqurice, weak sweets, spice, alcohol, oak and weak hints of whiskey.

330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear deep Cola black colour; Very thin head and light beige foam which fades in 10 seconds; Small sticky lacing and minimal carbonation; Aroma of roasted malt, with light black coffee, light chocolate, molasses, cream, faint alcohol and light grass; Pleasant sweet taste of roasted malt and molasses, with whiskey, smoke, black coffee, light chocolate, oak, light earth, light citrus and grass; Light body, thin, slick and slightly creamy palate; Mouth feel is like a bare-bone stout get oak-aged in whiskey cask. Potent sweetness and whiskey stand along with roastyness and strong smokiness. Whiskey booze is very evident in smell but not in taste. Creaminess and earthy hops are lightweights, otherwise, tastes are quite bare; Hoppiness is very light grassy nose, light earth, citrus and grass taste. Low bitterness kinda working okay but still a sweet booze finish; Wet after taste, sweet and smoky to mouth.

Comments: A different take on a stout which undergones whiskey cask treatment. The smoky whiskey character is strong at the expense of stoutís roasty and chocolaty characters. Decent, but not top stuff.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2013
0.33l clear bottle. Not that Iíve had a coke for the last 10 years, but this looks just like that in the glass. Dark deep brown with a nice medium dark head. Lots of dark deep sweetness on the nose. Burned sugar, dark malts, a little bit of chocolate and chocolate paper, some smoky hints and toffee. Smells quite nice actually. Doesnít taste bad either with lots of licorice, burned sugar and dark sticky malts. It has a light oily mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. Yeah, itís definitely on the sweet side but hey, itís a Innis & Gunn... Canít really sence any whiskey before I get a slightly salty licorice and smoky hint in the aftertaste. Normally not the biggest fan of this brewer, but this was not all that bad. 19.07.2013

bottle that M.A got for me somewhere in the USA .. . somewhere .. . pours a rather deep brown .. baby foam, light lacing .. . a straight forward stout, nice soft barrel presence .. . nice beer, nothing crazy. .. . . Itís funny how we needlessly shorten sentences in this day and age. Because convenience.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black beer with a small beige head. Aroma is light sweet with some light whisky malt touches, sweet and sugary. Flavour is quite sweet with a decent amount of sweet boozy characters. Alcohol is well hidden, yet itís noticeable that this an barrel aged beer. Decent beer, lacks some complexity though.
