HeistAlmighty (1126) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
330ml bottle. Beer looks black in the bottle, but has red undertones when held up to the light. Very thin off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, Irish whiskey and vanilla. Taste blends dark chocolate roasted malt with whiskey and wood. Slight earthy bitterness, cola and vanilla notes. Palate was appropriately smooth and full. Overall, when I&Gs aging gimmick works, it works well and this time it came off really flavourful and enjoyable.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2012
Nja, det här är väl kanske inte deras bästa öl. Smaken är spretig och sticker åt alla håll med sötman, maltigheten och smaken av jord. Slutsats: nja, det här var ingen favorit.

maneliquor (3067) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a small off white head on top which stays and leaves solild lacing. Nose is predominately chocolate and roasted malts. Not a lot going on. As it warms some faint ’Jameson’ like notes come out. Taste is rather pleasant. Chocolate with a roasted core and a light finish of irish whiskey - you know the kind that has no harshness and that touch of sweet vanilla behind it all to finish things off. Medium mouth feel with soft carbonation. not too bad. Much better than I was expecting

Beersiveknown (2876) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 2, 2012
Dark ruby with vanilla and toffee apple on the nose. Quite highly carbonated with more toffee apple, sweet caramel, chocolate. Lingering sweet finish. Pretty well done.

rocbyter (1896) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2012
Sweet dark robust malt aroma with a light amount of wood. Black color with a large brown head. Sweet with a light bitterness throughout with the perfect balance.

shaynsawchuk (460) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
330 mL bottle. Dark brown, almost black with red at the fringe, a nice brown head with lots of lacing. Weak on the nose but when drinking you experience deep roasted oak and caramelized malt aromas. Espresso and vanilla flavors with a hint of cherry and cola, nice bitter malt aftertaste. No whiskey flavors. Full bodied and thick on the palate. An interesting stout.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
Single bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, AB on 03/30/2012. Colour: black and dark brown mix with light brown medium head that continued to rise for a bit after pour. Nose: some interesting fruit...grape, cherry and plum...definitely dominant. Secondary notes of cocoa powder, cough syrup and wax. Odd. Taste: medium-light sweet, medium bitter, medium-light sour. Deceptive cola-caramel sweetness that is dominant through start to middle but is not overly sweet. Dusty and smokey bitterness builds up steam late and packs a punch in the finish. Aftertaste of teriyaki fried mushrooms?? Lots originality here....missed the oak influence but a pleasure treat.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2012
12 ounce bottle poured a dark red color, with aromas of toffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some whiskey. Flavors are a mellowed version of the aromas with some wood added to it. A lot better than the other beers I had from Innis & Gunn.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2012
Bottled (thanks omhper!) Quite much rubyish black colour, small head. Aroma is sweet caramel, toffee, liquorice and some slight alcohol. Flavour is quite similar in a quite dry wooden way. Not much of whiskey, but still quite pleasant, though it’s quite sweet.
