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.

33 cl. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Thx! Black with a mocha / beige head. Nose is huge vanilla from the wood, molasses, sweet mocha, chocolate & caramel, quite unbalanced but nice. Taste is light whiskey, this makes me think more of bourbon honnestly than Irish whiskey with the big vanilla wood notes, sweet with some hars barrel, wood, mocha, caramel, chocolate, coffee, sweet brown sugar & touch molasses. Less carb. witch fits nicely. This is very unbalanced sadly but brings a lot of fun, with more balance this could become a true heavy hitter.

03-JUN-2012, bottle @home, from "Fish @ Beer", thx Minitøser. Black with lasting creamy brown head. Roasted with chocolate. Loads of bourbon, vanilla, oak, soy. Full but not really as imperial as some but just makes it more drinkable. Sweet, long roasted finish. Fantastic stout.

Sigmund (5115) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2012
Shared bottle at local tasting, as Porter House Barrel Aged Collection Celebration Stout, Limited Edition. ABV is 11%. Pitch black colour, thick brown head. Oaky and vinous aroma, notes of vanilla and Irish whiskey. Strong oaky, vanilla and whiskey flavour, some chocolate too. Excellent beer.

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 25, 2012
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.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
330ml bottle. Thin, nougat coloured head, dark brown with reddish hints in the body. Lots of wood and whiskey from the aging and some vanilla and caramel from the stout. Taste is like a shot of whiskey poured into a stout. A hint of alcoholic burn in the mouth. Body is full, but not too thick. Overall, I really enjoyed this. Spot on.

Black color; medium sized head. Mild aroma of chocolate, vanilla, liquor, wood. Excellent flavor, it tastes like a chocolate filled with liquor, and vanilla, with a touch of liquorice; very rich; moderate sweetness; in the final there is some liquorice and tar, and very light malt sourness. Nice alcohol warmth.
Excellent beer, with a vibe.

Bottle at home - April ’12. Very dark brown verging on black with a thin tan head. Definate whisky aroma floating on the nose allied to dark roasted malts, dark fruits and a pinch of vanilla and a dash of cocoa. Fairly full in body with a good alcohol burn in the finish. I was impressed by this one!
