Christian (11027) - Odense, - JAN 28, 2013
Januar bonus @Sørens. Black with a small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla and dried fruit, a roasted note and a little sweet licorice. Sweetish malty flavour with licorice, chocolate and dried fruit, bourbon and vanilla oak notes and reasonably drying roasted flavour. Very well balanced for a barrel aged imperial stout

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.

PriorL (1643) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2014
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!

stravale (2057) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
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

poech73 (149) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2014
bière brune type anglaise. Au nez fortes effluves alcooliques de wisky, malt fortement torréfié, caramel. En bouche, le wisky envahi tout et déborde le palais. Sur la fin la dégustation développe ses aômes de barique, de syrop de malt, de céréales et se termine avec une amertume discrète mais tenace sur la longueur. L’attaque agresse le palais et l’estomac en alcool au point de faire tourner la tête à la 1ère gorgée. Du coup, je suis allé commandé une autre bière, disant que celle-là ne le convenait pas. Je l’ai quand même gardé de côté, et finalement, je l’ai terminée mais avec labeur ! En bouche, le wisky reste bien présent; ce n’est que sur la fin de la gorgée que le stout revient en laissant des saveurs boisées et amérisées sur des notes aromatiques. Trop fort, pas mon truc :/

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013

TBone (12451) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Dark brown color, small brown head. Vanilla, roasted notes in the aroma. Full-bodied. Roasted malts, lots of vanilla, quite sweetish, some whiskey warming. Nice barrel ageing, although quite typical flavors.

77ships (3586) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2013
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.

Skinnyviking (6773) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing off-white fluffy head. Pitch black body. Coffee roasted malt caramel aroma. Lovely smooth coffee roasted malt vanilla whiskey flavor with a nicely subdued alcohol taste, low carbonation and a suitable long finish.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle@Home. Whisky aroma with chocolate in the background. Opaque, light brown head, good lace. Chocolate, whisky, roasted finish, light bitter. Bit thin and nothing really to get excited about.
