3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with whisky and some sweetness in the background. Taste of roasted malts with notes of chocolate and a whisky finish. Some oak in the taste and a good body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark mooolases in colour. A light skiffing of head. Very little carbonation. Bountiful aromas of dark cacao, burnt caramels and toffee. Lively sweetness at the first sip. Smooth on the tongue with a soft bitter ending. Creamy and heavy, staying true to its stout origin. Tingle of Irish whaasky flavour that leaves an exciting warmness in my barrel. A tasty treat indeed.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled in Snifter
Pours almost opaque. Fantastic head retention and lacing.
Excellent chocolate and tobacco notes that come through into a long finish.
Carbonation is right on point. The whiskey notes are very prominent but not overwhelming exhibiting just the right amount of vanilla and oak.
Great value too! Cheers!

Perfect 5. I canít take a point off for anything. I might be able to in future tastings but this is by far my favorite beer ever.

Thanks for the share, Harold! Nose is oak, whiskey, vanilla, some light roast, turbinado sugar, and some coffee. Pour is light brown/garnet colored with not much for a head. Taste is similar with light sugary sweetness, oak and whiskey, some toffee, molasses, and roast. Not bad at all.

It's dark with a very alcohol content kick. The malts are very strong, not much hops. Has a sharp astringent at the end that hold its back.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 This brew was very good overall. The pour was a brilliant ruby with a thin, frothy head. It smelled like vanilla, oak, whiskey, honey and caramel candies. The taste was of whiskey as well, but with mellow toffee and bitter-dank hops towards the finish. I want more of this!!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat muted,simple roast and nut aroma -- nice, but I expected a little more complexity. Good bottle, albeit clear. Dark ruddy brown, creamy tan head. Roast, simple sugary sweetness, tannic, coffeish. Lightish body, effervescent. A little rough edge here and there. ABC, Betton.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours cherry red with a medium light-tan head. Canít smell much (I rarely can, though). Taste is lightly roasted malts, toffee, oak and whiskey. Canít find the whiskey in the aroma, but itís there in the aftertaste. Body is really thin...not watery but far from full. Iíd be hard pressed to call this a stout, but itís better than I remember...perhaps a year (or so) on my shelf has improved it? Not bad, but not really very stout-like.
