COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the delightful combination of whiskey, sugar and coffee. However, you don’t have to be Irish and it doesn’t have to be morning to enjoy this labor of love. Our Imperial Stout was aged in whiskey barrels, then blended with a big Milk Stout, and finally infused with locally roasted cold-pressed coffee. It’s a complex beer meant to be shared with friends over an Irish toast.

Bottle... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. The nose furnishes notes of dried plum, burnt malt and subtle coffee with hints of chocolate and malt whiskey - maybe a trace of acetaldehyde. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor presents an odd marriage of fruity essences and roasted, moderately bitter malts. Finishes a hint chocolaty, but mostly bland. Where’s the whiskey and coffee? I like my stuff BIG! Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice.

Thanks to Bob for the 750mL bottle! Poured high-viscosity brown with a creamy cap of dark tan head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up bit lactose and other sweet chocolatey notes joined by some dry-roasted coffee.. not a whole lot of whisky barrel was apparent, but there was related vanilla and a hint of oak.. came back to lactose sugars and chocolate on the back of the nose. The flavor found tangy whisky barrel accents over cream and chocolate notes at the core.. dry coffee roast, tart oak, and surprisingly clean whisky notes on the edges.. peppery and spicy, but with really good balance on the warm finish.. tasty stuff! Medium-plus bodied and fairly full on the palate.. lots of roast held the hefty sweetness in check.. I enjoyed the long, sweet-yet-barrely finish.. really good stuff!

I thought it wouldbe smokier and more robust but it turns out to be a well-balanced stout.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with nice tan head, aroma brought notes of espresso, dark chocolate, hints of lactose, touch of grain, caramel, toffee in there as well, smells very nice. Taste is a mix of green espresso bean, hints of coffee, whiskey, slight oak, nice chocolate in there, finishing fairly coffee forward with lots of dark chocolate, slightly bitter, Very tasty.

Bottle thanks to Eric! Pours a dark brown color with a thick brown head. A nice nose of roast and coffee. A very good flavor of milky coffee, roast, light caramel, not much whiskey but a fiery bite. Nice.

Thanks to burg326 for sharing this one around. Cheers, Adam! Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Nose is coffee, some light chocolate, and whiskey. Flavor is exactly as promised: roasted coffee and whiskey along with some earth and dark chocolate. Light to medium in body and lingering coffee and whiskey in the finish.
