scantron (63) - Ontario, - MAR 20, 2013
March 17, 2013; 7.4% abv, 650 mL, tulip Nice dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Some cherry tartness cuts through the roasted flavours. Whiskey malts and vanilla also make it in there. Dark used motor oil colour with deep tan head of about 1 inch. Shrinks down pretty fast but leacves nice lace. Roast chocolate and coffee dominate with some light acidity. Booze kicks in with nice sweet whiskey flavours - nutmeg, smoke, sweet jerky, vanilla, other spices of some sort. Smooth milky mouthfeel and sharp carbonation lets your swirl this in your mouth a bit. This is surprisingly good. The sweetness, booze, and whiskey flavours makes this pretty enjoyable.

Pours a brown with almost no head. Nose of oak, malt, and something sweet that I cannot put my finger on. Taste of malt, caramel, oak. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Cybion (61) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
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.

Strangebrewer (844) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
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.

(bottle - 330 ml) Dark ruby pour with a thin tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma with some vanilla and oak notes. Slightly sweet at the beginning of the flavor with a roasted malt backbone coming up right after. Bitter and roasted coffee mixed with some light vanilla and buttery flavors with a bitter and lingering finish.
