Bottle. 11.0%. Best before 13.08.13. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a dark khaki head. Decent lacing. Sweet and roasted aroma with a faint vanilla note and an alcohol bite. Dark fruit note as it warms and a slight berry-like tartness. Flavour is sweetish and dry, with dark fruit and roasted notes, alcohol and a plastic note, the latter diminishing as it warms though. Tart, alcoholic finish with a roasted touch; whisky-like overtone. Lingering dryness and a grassy note. Overall good. Aroma wins by an inch over flavour. 28.12.12.

(Another rare stout from my friend Tony. Thx a lot!) Une robe brune avec un col de mousse. Des parfums délicieux de whiskey, de vanille, de bois, de chocolat et de fruits liquoreux. Ça sent bien bon! Sur les papilles, un mélange très adéquat de notes boisées d’eau-de-vie, de cacao sec, de vanille de barrique et de petits fruits avec une belle touche de réglisse. En bouche, un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse, voire même vineuse si le rapprochement peut être possible. En finale, un alcool qui procure une chaleur et une amertume créée par le traitement réservé aux céréales maltées. Très bel exemple d’un stout impérial vieilli en fût.

Bottle from Kris Wines. I’ve had this about 18 months. It’s aged in ’Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey casks.’ Colour is very dark brown to black, tan head which dissipates to a thin edge ring. Nose is sweet, sherry, whisky barrel, musty fortified wine, musty aged wood, some Marmite and yeast extract, some slight oxidisation mustiness, chocolate, black coffee and roasted malt. Taste is musty oxidisation, but not in an unpleasant way, Marmite, black treacle sweetness, roasted malt, sherry, aged wood, slight cola sweetness, dark chocolate, bit of black coffee. The yeast extract and barrel ageing is dominating things, but it’s not too overpowering. Nicely warming and decently balanced. Body isn’t huge. Heading towards big but lighter than some. Finish is yeast extract savoury and salty on the back of the tongue, and traces of the sherry and whisky from the barrel.

Cerveza de color marrón oscuro con una cabeza de color canela. Aroma a alcohol, whisky, malta tostada con un toque a madera. Sabor dulce a malta tostadas, whisky, madera y notas de alcohol y de vainilla con un final tostado y seco. Me gusto Mucho.

I love a great stout and I love Irish whiskey. This beer is a perfect marriage. Hardly any bitter of the stout but contains a great balance of sweet taste. Had this from bottle right after drinking the Regular Celebration stout at Delirium cafe in Brussels. Awesome.

Taken from notes, at Porterhouse Dublin, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: black beer, small unstable beige head. NOSE: lots of whiskey, some chocolate as well, some wood. TASTE: feels like a bit of whiskey was trapped in the barrel and has come out with the beer, lots of whiskey taste, but all around a nice stout!

Bottle from Drinkstore [Jan 2014]
Pitch black, big thick beige head that dissipates, good lacing
Aroma - Rich meaty roast, definite whisky but not too much, bit vinous. some dark fruits, touch of red berries, hint of treacle, woody, complex
Taste of dark malts, mellow roast, hint of vanilla, the whisky is good in this, bit leathery, dab of dark fruits, some alcohol is noticeable, touch of chocolate, again complex
Palate - soft carb, full body, very smooth. Finish as main flavour, warming alcohol, a bit dry
Overall - The whisky does work in this - decent impy
