Night_Cap (57) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle 330ml. Served at room temperature. Pours a very dark brown (almost black). Head is good sized, lightly tanned, dense and lasts very well. Aroma is of roasted barley, blackcurrants, spiced fruit mince, toffee, chocolate and vanilla pods. Flavour is a light earthy bitterness with roasted barley, blackberries, raisins, milk chocolate, toffee, treacle (light) and a buttery vanilla finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation and a decent length finish. ABV is very well hidden.

NikkTwist (2614) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2016
Draft at Moriartys. Opaque dark brown pour with a slim refined khaki foamy head. Harsh when cold. Warms to complex flavors of dark fruit - dried blueberries, blackberries and very dark chocolate cherry cordials. Aroma is slim when cold. Builds to solid flavors of peat, celery hearts, molasses, burnt sugar, black currants, charred tangerines. Black stuff. Need to step back from it but not do bad at all. Not complex enough though.

RhetoricalAns (821) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Definitely one of I&G’s better offerings. Deep brown pour, thin tan head. Slightly sweet aroma, toffee, some wood / cask. Taste is more roasted and woody, some whiskey flavours.

Pours dark brown almost purple like in the light with a light brown head. Low carbonation. Aroma is quite woody. Taste is malty with Carmel sweetness and the warm of the whisky at the end. Another winner from Innis and Gunn ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerViking (3986) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Brown bottle - well done I&G! Pours very dark brown with a fast-settling head. Light whiskey cask aromas are unsubtle yet pleasant. Burnt barley and vanilla caramel, roasty yet sweet, a little honey and liquorice, pleasant but the sweetness somehow leaves it a bit lacking in depth.

Arek (929) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland.
Czarne piwo o beżowej, puszystej i obfitej pianie oraz słodowy, owocowym, lekko winnym aromacie. W smaku gęste, zbliżone do aromatu, słodkawe, owocowe, trochę winne, z łagodnym, palonym posmakiem drewna i whiskey.

mikeyo1 (633) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a brown medium head, leavning some lacing. Dry aroma with sweet whiskey notes, wood, roasted barley, metal and spices. Sweet taste with dry malt character, wood, whiskey, honey, herbs, sour roasted malt, and some dark fruits and licorice. Lingering chocolate.

cmacklin (763) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
330ml clear bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown, almost black with a reddish hue and a small, short lived, tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate, caramel, whiskey and oak. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, liquorice, caramel, coffee and oak, leading to a dry, whiskey finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft to flat carbonation. Ok.
