Bottle. Think this is the first stout that I have tried from this company. Dark and smooth with an unusual slightly smoked wooden taste. A good one that I would recommend.

JesseMartineau (52) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with some copper highlights, thick tan head decent lacing. Aromas of roast malt, oak, vanilla, cherry. Taste initially really leaves you wanting it?s quite flat. Roasted malts, more like burnt malt really... finish leaves a roasted taste in the mouth. To me this is a disappointing beer...

GreenJeremy (63) - Spruce Grove, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
pours almost black with a fluffy light tan head. nice lacing and retention. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, oak, and some cherries. Taste is kind of watery, Roasted malt, some whiskey like character but not alot. A bit of oaky notes. mouthfeel lacking, flat and watery. Not the best innis and gunn out there.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2014
Sample at Systembolaget tasting. Sweet smell with buttery note and some gele candy and similar sweets. Some whisky in the taste and hard roasted bread. Not very smooth. Feels unbalanced. Better then most other I&G beers but nothing for me.

Everettm (65) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Very dark brown, if not black, with barely and head. Aroma is dominated by a sickly sweet almost cola note with fiery rye whiskey and oak, some raisin and roasted malt in present but almost hidden. Medium body and lightish palate for the style, with light carbonation. Immediate raisin and plum highlights are found when tasting, with oak and vanilla accents, some burnt malt and whiskey is also present.

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle from Tesco. An opaque mahogany pour with a tight beige head; oaky vanilla aroma; smooth, creamy, stout-like body , with a fruity taste and lots of oak; leading to a dry vanilla finish with some warmth from the alcohol. A not very successful attempt at combining stout with whiskey cask.

tommann (2488) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is vanilla, wood and a hint of whiskey. Taste is sweet to start with a vanilla roast finish.

Philym (698) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Appearance: Clear dark brown/ruby with light ruby highlights and a finger thick tan head. Aroma: Smoky, wood, treacle/toffee, banana, bubblegum, hint of peat and vanilla. Taste: Medium bitterness, low/medium sweet and sourness. Palate: Thin smooth texture, light body, low/average carbonation, lingering finish initially banana, bubblegum and toffee, vanilla, followed by a bitter burnt caramel, burnt malt. Very subtle tongue tingling alcohol warmth. Comments: Tasty and slight glass ring lace.

SarkyNorthener (1416) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Black beer with medium head. Aroma of roasted malts, wood and some Whisky notes. Taste is vanilla, oak, whisky hints and some roasted malts. OK stuff, but not quite balanced.

zacgillbanks (1860) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
