WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 25, 2013
Most important with this beer is that the whiskey barrels add to the complexity and don’t drown out the stout, which tasted like the foreign stouts I’ve had more than the standard style. Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, toffee... better and more complex than many imperial stouts I’ve had.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Bottled. 31/12/12. A near black beer with dark red hints and a pool of whitish head. Sweet caramel, toffee and chocolate in the whiskey free nose. A sweet oaky feel to the mouth, Fruity. Has the woodiness of the barrel aging but no whiskey; and lacking much by way of stoutness. In spite of all that it’s tasty enough if like me you like sweet beers.

BBB63 (6526) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle and served in nonik pint glass: Pours a deep ruby highlighted deep brown hue with a small frothy head that left minimal lace. The aroma has notes of corn whiskey, green apple and pear esters, some oak and herbal hops, a bit of Diacetyl and heavy crystal, moderate roast, charred wood and pale malt vapours. The taste is unique with a twangy green apple Cidery note more than a tart Acetaldehyde character. Brash alcohol of the whisky cleanse the palate from the heavy crystal, roast, chocolate and biscuity malt overtones. A splash of herbal hops on the finish along with some tannic oak and a touch of char. The mouth feel is smooth but a tad under-carbonated. Ashy and dry tannic finish. It is okay, a bit disappointing. Not really stout like IMO. More a strong ale in more than one way.

wheresthepath (2059) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
[330ml bottle from Beers of Europe] Pours mahogany-black with a moderate tan head and a slight fizz. Cream soda up front, then port and chocolate followed by a pleasant smokiness, roasty malts and cola. A little sourness in the finish is a concern, but the beer makes up for this with a lingering aftertaste of vanilla ice cream. As is usual with Innis & Gunn, it’s on the sweet side, which some might not like, for for me it was a great pudding/ late evening beer. Another great effort from Innis & Gunn, nice to see them varying the style a bit.

stantheman (864) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottled. Very dark, almost pitch black, ever so slightly translucent, with a tan head. Malts evident on the nose. Flavor is jam packed with malts, along with vanilla, fruit and chocolate notes. Very rich and sweet. Wow!

mansquito (5041) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($3.25): Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is slight roasted malts, but mostly vanilla and whiskey, lots of whiskey. Taste is a bit sweet. Light bodied. Tastes mostly like whiskey aftertaste, and with a slight whiskey aftertaste. Alcohol is well-covered. This ain’t that stouty, but it is a unique little beer, which is fun to drink here and there.
