ChadPolenz (1721) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 16C Tropical Stout)

AROMA: Sweet dark malt and fruits; whiskey note in the background. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown to black; fairly clear with no highlights. Small, tan, soapy head mostly evaporates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Quite sweet with smooth dark grain flavors and restrained bitterness. Some cola-like taste and sweetness. Slightly chocolaty. Whiskey-soaked oak chips impart only faint flavor and mostly on the end. Some toffee notes as well. No hop presence. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with low carbonation and watery texture. Very smooth with clean aftertaste; no alcohol presence. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: As a stout its pretty good, but the wood aging doesnt do much for it. Sweet for a stout (but not cloying). 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

chinchill (4422) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2016
330 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Stirling, Scotland. Wood and whisky notes compose the aroma and are a little more prominent in the flavor than is the base Scottish stout. Too sweet. Decent aftertaste. Good tan head. Overall: disappointing.

angelkostvo (1182) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 7, 2016
Very dark brown colour, almost black, beige head. Aroma of oak, some roasted and toasted malts, slight notes of the irish whiskey. Taste is medium sweet, more flavourful than I expected. Light body, pretty thintexture, soft carbonation. You can feel the ABV.

Foerdifuxx (251) - Franconia, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2016
Deep brown coloured beer with a big, medium lasting, beige head. Aromas of irish whiskey, milk chocolate, wood, malt, floral and citrus hops. Taste is like drinking chocolate with an underlying pleasant whiskey touch, more wood towards the finish. The texture is silky-smooth, creamy. Soft carbonation, medium body. I love it!
