As another reviewer said it pours a bit like cola. I find this beer a little disappointing and I am rather fond of me stout. Itís not bad by any stretch of the imagination but I just dont find that the flavours work together all that well. Dark fruit, slightly smokey and sweet. Certainly drinkable but Iím not sure if I will go for it again.

Aroma: High malt, dark fruit, sweet, roasty, woody, whisky, Appearance: Clear, very dark copper body. Large light-brown, fizzy head. Good retention.

Creamy carbonation.Medium warmth, dry finish, slight burn on the tongue. Overall: A bit harsh. A good end of the evening beer, but not my favourite. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 13D.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2014
330ml bottle - Thanks Chris! Deep port red in colour with a thick pale buff head. Strong malt aroma with fragrant vanilla pod long on the nose. Thin oily mouthfeel and no lacing. Dark malts give a rich maltloaf base with syrupy raisin fruit, black cherry, vanilla and a hint of nutmeg. There is a slight dry earthy note to the hop resins but this fades fast in the short aftertaste. Finish is malty with a mild boozy warmth of Whiskey - but not as evident as the Rum cask in flavour though. Sweet notes of liquorice and marzipan follow through in the malty backbone with smooth vanilla always present in the palate. The 7.4% is very well hidden in this excellent stout and is so easy to down it quickly. Highly recommended and my second favourite to the Treacle Porter.

Freaky_tiki (636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Pours out of the bottle like a cola. Thin burnt sugar cap, ruby highlights when raised to the light. A brisk stout: more carbonation than expected, a sweet dimension & a ever so slight twang of the whiskey barrel. Milder than expected --almost watery -- especially with the 7.4% & barrel aging.

Pours dark. A touch of molasses and fruit on the tongue. Smooth mouth feel. A touch of whiskey on the tongue and nose. Some chocolate and coffee. Small head.

Pour is black in color with a nice tan head aroma is larger and malts. A nice medium body beer that has great whiskey flavors. Stays on the plate to enjoy longer.

twindog (265) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2014
Smooth and nice, with a hint of fruits, whisky. Very good stout better tasting of whisky, the alcohol does not dominate the beer.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2014
Like many cask aged beers, it has notes of molasses, black cherry, vanilla, and of course wood aging. Not as overtly whiskey flavored as the rum cask is rum flavored, although I think the starting product is more rum oriented in any case. Dark brown cola like appearance. Taste of bitter vanilla and chocolate, a touch of whiskey, but mainly toasted malts. Kind of thin but very smooth. My favorite of the new series I & G casked ales.

CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pint glass. Dark brown with half finger tan head. Smells like whiskey, vanilla, and brown sugar. Tastes of whiskey, cherries, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. The palate is a bit thin for me, but overall, it's ok, I would try it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radagast83 (5053) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft at World of Beer, Fort Myers. Poured a dark brown color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some chocolate and toasted malts, some oak notes, and a bit of booze. Flavor was roasted, toasted notes, smooth whiskey character comes out. First sip was actually all that pleasant, but subsequent sips were quite enjoyable. Creamy, enjoyable.
