Pours a very dark brown, nearly opaque with a thick head that rapidly dissipates. Notes of the Irish whiskey barrel are evident but does not overpower the caramel malt notes

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours deep ruby with a tiny amount of tan head, which doesn’t stick around long. Aroma of roasted malts along with a big presence of oak, and some earth, caramel and a tiny bit of resin. As expected it smells a little of Irish whiskey or bourbon. Big hit of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malts in the taste, topped off with a little bit of bourbon, a citrus-y sour note, marzipan and brown sugar. Nicely bitter and extremely smooth and oily on the mouth, a delight for the palate. Essentially a more complex I&G original with a little more body and kick to it; great stuff.

bottle. Poured deep brown with a red hue, settling creamy beige head. Aroma of heavily roasted malt, chocolate and alcohol. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Rich flavour, burnt malt, oak and treacle notes. Ending a bit sour and very dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ricoh Tossco. Reflective pitch with ruby edges and a small rumpled nicotine head flattening fast. Attractive aroma of bubblegum, mauby, liquorice, Bateman’s and peat. The aroma translates directly into the flavour which is slightly warming, bubblegum fruity and hints at Black Jacks with a scraping of burnt toast. Not serious joined up beer but after a dry spell I have to admit it tastes pretty sweet, if needlessly astringent and burnt to finish. Just give me a full on Bazooka chew/root beer tooth rot attack and be done with it. Kind of pleasant.
