Bottled. A very dark brown beer with a red shine under a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, whiskey, roasted malt, and a bit of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, whiskey, wood, and a bit of soy sauce, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours deep brown/black with a tan head that leaves a hint of lace. There’s definitely a whiskiness to the nose with some subdued roasted coffee and stewed fruit. There’s an antique woodiness there too I’m digging a lot. The booze is quite well hidden. The booze comes out on the palate but only as a warming and drying agent. This is certainly a toned down imperial stout but I’m liking it a lot. There’s a coffee feel right up front that gives way to the booze and licorice. The finish lasts for about 7 weeks and keeps rolling over itself.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rating #100 and a worthy drop to toast the milestone. Jet black pour with a thin biscuit head and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, whisky, dark fruit, peat, vanilla. Its wonderfully warm and sweet on the palate. Slightly bitter from the hops, smoky from the peat and earthy. You can really feel the whisky heat as you inhale whilst sipping. BACS is full bodied with medium carbonation. The best to come out of Ireland that I’ve had to date and would stand up admirably with most imp stouts.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Pours pitch black with dirty brown head - good retention & lacing. Aroma full of vanilla, deep roast malt & complex notes from the whiskey barrel. Big vanilla hit in the taste, very smooth roasted maltiness - dark chocolate, molasses, liquorice all there. Healthy dose of booze in the bitter finish, very warming. Great to see an Irish brewer having some balls and pushing the boundaries a bit.
