shaynsawchuk (435) - 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 (3576) - 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 (20252) - 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.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 14, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Petalax, BBE 2013)
Deep ruby color, steady brown head. Aroma is caramelly, toffee/fudge, sweet berries. Medium-bodied. There is some whiskey in the background and vanilla. Dominating is caramel and toffee. Light hoppyness in the finish. Interesting, maybe a bit different I&G.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - APR 13, 2012
12oz bottle poured into glass. Brownish color with very minimal head. Whiskey in the aroma, but not a ton. Very easy to drink and light in body.
