4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown in the pour, almost black in the glass. Finger of tan head that held well and great lacing.
Some good roasted malt smell, caramel and toffee.
Tastes like milk cream, harsh malt with a tease of sweet, bitter follows, ends with a good burnt malt grip. The oak cask is the backbone of it all, bringing structure and balance. It has a warming effect but not in the usual whiskey cask aged beer style.
Soft and creamy texture. Low carbonation, medium body, not as heavy as other cask aged beers.
One of my favorite whiskey cask aged beers. It’s between a sipper and an easy drinker, which for a cask aged beer is impressive. Not hardly sweet at all, which is great.

Very dark brown colour, almost black, beige head. Aroma of oak, some roasted and toasted malts, slight notes of the irish whiskey. Taste is medium sweet, more flavourful than I expected. Light body, pretty thintexture, soft carbonation. You can feel the ABV.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown coloured beer with a big, medium lasting, beige head. Aromas of irish whiskey, milk chocolate, wood, malt, floral and citrus hops. Taste is like drinking chocolate with an underlying pleasant whiskey touch, more wood towards the finish. The texture is silky-smooth, creamy. Soft carbonation, medium body. I love it!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque black ruby hue with a quickly dissipating beige head. Spectacularly pungent aroma with notes of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, and oak, emphasizing sweetness. Robust smooth body. Splendidly sweet combination of caramel, roast, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, oak, and syrup with a smooth, sweet finish. Quite nice, but perhaps slightly too sweet for my liking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 ounce bottle. Poured out a semi-translucent mahogany brown with a thin wheat head. Appearance was more of a porter than a stout. Whiskey was fairly strong in the aroma with the addition of malt and wood. Taste followed in almost the same proportions. The palate was thinner than most stouts but had a nice oily smoothness to it. Well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2016 Butelka 330 ml. Czarny kolor. Piana obfita jasnobrazowa o kremowej konsystencji. Pierwszy zapach uderzajacy w nozdrza to whiskey potem nuty wanilii czekolady i palonych slodow. Dosc nietypowe dla stauta ze czekoladowe tony zostaly zrzucone na drugi plan. W smaku slodko wytrawne. Dobrze zbalansowane o gladkiej teksturze. Wyczuwalna czekolada ale whiskey zaglusza wszystko. Niewatpliwie dobre piwo ale jak na stauta za duzo whiskey. Mi jednak smakuje bardzo.
