Purs a dark black. Has a pretty good amount of carbonation. Smells like coffee and a hint of bourbon. Taste is roasty with a nice touch of coffee and just a bit of bourbon on the tongue. Big lacing throughout. This is a nice treat from lift bridge.

Tap. Very dark pour with a smaller cream head. Whiskey, oak, lactose, and coffee all over the nose and taste. Yummy.

Not too shabby. But, nothing to write home about either. A pretty run of the mill Irish stout with lots of coffee in it.

Bottle pours dark brown/black with a small brown head. Aroma of cold pressed coffee and chocolate, slight whiskey as it warms, pretty simple. Rather smooth, taste is like aroma chocolate and coffee, whiskey is present but not overbearing and balanced rather nice with the simplicity of this one. Pleasant and enjoyable but lacking an overall complexity of a stout aged in whiskey barrels.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 I was not crazy about this one. Aroma has oak and heavily roasted grain, with lots of coffee. Flavor is mostly cold coffee with very light spice. A thick beer, with low carbonation. Very intense coffee all around, and a dry finish. My issue is a cold coffee flavor that overwhelms everything else.
