Metalchopz (2406) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
One I have put aside, but now time to rate. Comes in a single box from the LCBO. Pours a clean dark brown colour with a frothy beige head that stays a long time and creates foamy lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, cacao, vanilla, with notes of bananas, caramel and rusty water. Smooth, very creamy mouthfeel, very silky. Mild taste of roasted malts, butterscotch, with bananas and hop mild in the finish. The banana hints make me think this is closer to bourbon barrels than Irish whiskey ones. Still, a very creamy, lighter stout that is interesting.

edgallow (2363) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2012
12 oz bottle pours black with a off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, and a hint of whiskey. Taste is the malts, whiskey and a bit of vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2012
Medium brown coarseish head doesn’t last. Barely translucent clear deep dark red body. Faint roasty toffee aroma with vague chocolatey notes. Sweet perfumy vanilla toffee taste with chocolatey notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish chocolatey perfumy aftertaste with butterscotch notes. Perfumy and candy-like, but still very delicate and harmonic. I quite like it. (0.33l bottle, Alko Arkadia, Helsinki.)

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Roasted aroma, not so casky. Black colour. Small tan head. The flavour is creamy and mildly roasted. A little coffee and a faint hint of vanilla. Gets a little fruity in the finish. Does not taste of extreme barrel, but subtly.

Sigmund (5325) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2012
Sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Very dark brown colour. Moderate aroma of whisky cask and caramel. Rich and fairly sweet flavour, whisky cask and caramel again, but the hops are far too moderate for my taste..

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a very dark brown with a warm reddish hue and a small, beige head. Roasty nose, pruney with a little yeasty phenols. Medium body, sweet overripe fruit and again some damned phenols from that yeast. Only a subtle hint of wood or whiskey. 110512

HeistAlmighty (1155) - 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 (1496) - 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.
