BeerViking (4109) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Brown bottle - well done I&G! Pours very dark brown with a fast-settling head. Light whiskey cask aromas are unsubtle yet pleasant. Burnt barley and vanilla caramel, roasty yet sweet, a little honey and liquorice, pleasant but the sweetness somehow leaves it a bit lacking in depth.

Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland.
Czarne piwo o beżowej, puszystej i obfitej pianie oraz słodowy, owocowym, lekko winnym aromacie. W smaku gęste, zbliżone do aromatu, słodkawe, owocowe, trochę winne, z łagodnym, palonym posmakiem drewna i whiskey.

mikeyo1 (657) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a brown medium head, leavning some lacing. Dry aroma with sweet whiskey notes, wood, roasted barley, metal and spices. Sweet taste with dry malt character, wood, whiskey, honey, herbs, sour roasted malt, and some dark fruits and licorice. Lingering chocolate.

cmacklin (815) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
330ml clear bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown, almost black with a reddish hue and a small, short lived, tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate, caramel, whiskey and oak. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, liquorice, caramel, coffee and oak, leading to a dry, whiskey finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft to flat carbonation. Ok.

yourilevesque (1288) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2015
Bière brune foncée mais pas noire. La tête est assez volumineuse certes, et d’un blanc crémeux cassé. Celle-ci ne dessine cependant rien sur mon verre qui demeure impeccablement propre. Nez qui annonce beaucoup de sucre raffiné. Une pointe de café me chatouille aussi mais rien de très intéressant à ce niveau. Un certain vieillissement en baril est perceptible mais le sucre est beaucoup trop violent et en cache les nuances. Un corps volumineux en bouche accompagné d’une texture laiteuse. C’est ici que le whisky s’exprime le mieux mais il est toutefois enveloppé d’une texture laiteuse qui encore une fois est décevante. Alcool très bien dissimulé, longueur moyenne, cette bière est de même bonne si je compare aux autres produits de cette brasserie.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6641) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with an enormous fluffy brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was malty, woody, toasty and had notes of whiskey and gingerbread. The flavor was whiskey, wood, caramel, raisin, bread and had a moderate underlying bitterness. Long malty whiskey finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

eduardovl (1353) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 3, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 330ml bottle served in a chalice glass. Pours a dark a brown color forming a small and low persistent tan head. Some few spotty lacings are left in the glass. Strong woody and whiskey nose. Strong sweet notes of caramel and roasted malts followed by a whiskey nose. Sweet upfront mouth. Strong notes of caramel malts, roasted malts and oak. Low bitterness. Heavy body. Low carbonation. Oak and roasty aftertaste. Medium drinkability. Not bad.

TorbenJensen (1452) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2015
The aroma is malty but difficult to lay down the details due to its dense foam. The taste is very malty and luscious with clear notes of coffee and a little smoke. It is a beautiful and very tasty ale. A nice and tasty stout, which they say may have a little more whiskey character to live up to the name.

Jag är inget big fan av alla öl Innis & Gunn gör men jag brukar ändå tycka vissa är bra. Denna drack jag faktiskt inte ens upp, pga sötman. Den är på alla sätt och vis alldeles för söt. Sliskig liksom. Synd! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Surprisingly mediocre. I had stopped rating for a long time, but the most recent Innis & Gunn offerings were so bad that I started rating again as a warning. This makes a great "bad example" beer, and example of how not to do something. Aging a stout in used Irish Whiskey barrels is a great idea. Throwing oak chips in to get an oak taste in a hurry is a terrible idea. This tastes too sweet, too chemically, and is just a bad beer. Not drain pour like the toasted oak IPA, but pretty awful nonetheless.
