Nästan kolsvart med lite orangefärgat skum. Doftar kaffe och karamell. Smaken omedelbart söt, nästa för söt. Eftersmaken ganska lång med smak av melass.

Bottle from Tesco, Prestwich. Black, no head. Has an interesting sweetened nose with a very light whisky influence, some soapiness, but appealing. Has a similar taste akin to the dandelion and burdock pop drink. Certainly mild for a stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown reddish tinge. Small tan head - mainly rim and wet lacing - that disappears. Aroma is oaky malt with mild chocolate and coffee. Taste follows suits but is quite tangy and a bit sweet (treacle?). More coffee and amped smoky oak notes and mild closing bitterness. Moist mouthfeel with very low carbonation. Unique but there are better stouts out there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Review sample, label names it "Irish Whiskey Aged." Pours black, with very little fizz. Smell is warm and treacly, like a bit of whiskey and sugar stirred in hot water to relieve a cold. I am somewhat used to I&G’s house style by now: a lot of flavor from whatever was in the barrel, but not strong in alcohol. We’re talking "Bourbon and branch" here. And for a stout, the thread of whiskey keeps it very smooth. Sometimes it carries the impression of being Imperial strength, but that’s all in the taste buds.
