Bottle into snifter. As someone once said, "Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, dark bread, whiskey, and toasted oak; with light nuttiness, smoke, char, raisin, plum, fig, molasses, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, whiskey/oak chips, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength." Gotta like BA. This is a decent enough ’light bodied stout’ or more precisely ’porter’. It is mild and a tad chocolate-y, malt and smoky peat with caramel... it’s a real investigation to try to discover any Irish whiskey in the mix... I get the oakiness. Alcohol very well hidden. Just got in from a longish spring bike ride, so this decent, well balanced. easy drinking brew will not last ’til I finish this review. I could drink a bunch of these.

Det finns nåt tragiskt över att Innis som experimenterar så att de slår knut på sig själv, och andras smaklökar, aldrig lyfter över innertakshöjd. Det finns som vanligt den klassiska smakbilden av en standardiserad stout som den här gången ramas in av fyra väggar tapetserade med aromer av irländsk whisky. Det smakar precis som förväntat. Whiskyn är något nedtonad vilket är att betrakta som en fördel. Oväntat lite utanför boxen för att vara en öl som snarare borde befinna sig långt utanför ramen.

stevoj (5586) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Grunt fill from Albertsons. Light bodied for a stout, and pretty sweet too. Black body, small thin head. Sweet malty aroma, milk, burnt toast. Taste also seems overly sweet. Not too many whiskey notes. Still figuring this one out.

tightslice (1438) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is coffee candy, malts, dark fruit skins. Taste is tangy whiskey, dry coffee and cocoa, some dark fruitiness. Some decent coffee, chocolate and whiskey notes but a bit thin overall.

alexmate (286) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Dark brown colour with a decent sized clean white head. Taste is of black treacle and caramel mainly, some subtle roasted cocoa, a bit of coffee and some fruity plum notes. Pretty good. Price Paid: £1.79 330ml bottle.

oobawa (1747) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Certainly what it says it is: a boozed-up Innis & Gunn. Malty as all hell with sweet toffee on top of an earthy peat base, finishing with a discernible whisky backside and a slight smokiness on the fade. Too sweet, but okay for mid-March celebrations.

3.8
TaxiDriver (1830) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2017
A taste of chocolate, malt, raisin. The head is beige, small and creamy with a normal duration, the body is black. A malty taste, chocolate, toffee, licorice, syrup, a little bit like Christmas. The body is medium strong to strong, very creamy and oily with a soft carbonation.

3.7
Beachmaster (580) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 13, 2017
On draught. Pours a dark yellow, with a small white head that fades quickly. Nose is a mild Irish whisky note, and the taste follows. Slightly sweet, with a noticeable Irish note on the medium finish. Creamy mouth feel, low carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special.
