SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle, pours dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, some chocolate, vanilla and some raisins. Taste is like aroma with some licorice. Pretty sweet. Medium-light mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Slightly watery, would be better if it was richer in the taste and aroma.

douglas88 (7244) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Not a fan of the presentation, looks like a cola bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey head. The aroma is big smoked malts and light fruit. A sweet and fairly light beer with big oak and some whiskey, a bit of vanilla and candied fruit. Dry. Warm. Certainly has some barrel to it and a bit of heft. Good. Needs more roast to be better.

BillWyce (841) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2012
From notes: Poured cola brown-to-black, with a thick, creamy tan head. Mild, but complex aroma, with notes of caramel, cream, vanilla and a light woody note. Medium-bodied, medium-thick, with a somewhat dry finish. Flavors of coffee and caramel, with some earthiness and a mild wood note that becomes more pronounced as it warms.

dandeman (654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Aroma: Nice butterscotch accent on a whiskey basis. we also find molasses and caramel butter. Appearance: Black and opaque, generous head, creamy and long lasting. Taste is all caramel / butterscotch with an explosive whiskey finish. Chocolate is there also and we can feel the oak cask as well. Caramel is everywhere and long lasting. An excellent stout, very sweety. Very close to an imperial stout except for the weak bitterness. Une superbe bičre!!!

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle from Bon Vivant, Edinburgh
Very dark brown, frothy tan head that dissipates to thin layer, some lacing
Aroma - whiff of light-struck on opening, soft dark caramel malts, slight medicinal phenolic note, dark sugars, creamy, hint of wood, overall soft aroma
Taste - Caramel malts, liquorice, bit medicinal / phenolic, hint of chocolate, hint of wood, alcohol quite well hidden, bitter burnt ash note at the back, bit muddled
Palate - moderate carb, thin to medium body, quite smooth. Finish as main flavour with that bitter ashy note and some lingering alcohol.
Overall - Not that bad at all - doesn’t have that over sweet vanilla malt like the other I & G beers

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown pour with red highlights and a lasting creamy tan head. Nose is roasty with lots of whiskey and lesser hints of chocolate, earth and vanilla. Flavour is also heavy on the whiskey with chocolate, vanilla, charcoal, liquorice and toffee coming through. Mouthfeel is light and very dry with lively carbonation and a lingering bittersweet, slightly boozy finish. Not too bad, the cask maturation works pretty well with the beer if not actually enhancing it. One of the better brews from I & G although I do get the feeling that the stout could probably have stood up quite nicely on it’s own.

mkel07 (4299) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2012
330ml bottle. Perfect beer for this cold and wet winters night. Thick black colour with loads of deep tan foam. Aromas of chocolate, licorice and a hint of whiskey. Strong flavour in the mouth with a creamy smooth mouthfeel and a bit of an alcohol burn in the back of the throat. Nice.

BenH (3020) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle. Black with off white head. Fairly low key aroma, some caramel, faint whiskey, something slightly vegetal. Taste has caramel, toffee, very little whiskey again, little cola, little coffee. Slightly sweet with a sticky finish, a tad thin. On the whole, they’ve done much much worse than this
