4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown in the pour, almost black in the glass. Finger of tan head that held well and great lacing.
Some good roasted malt smell, caramel and toffee.
Tastes like milk cream, harsh malt with a tease of sweet, bitter follows, ends with a good burnt malt grip. The oak cask is the backbone of it all, bringing structure and balance. It has a warming effect but not in the usual whiskey cask aged beer style.
Soft and creamy texture. Low carbonation, medium body, not as heavy as other cask aged beers.
One of my favorite whiskey cask aged beers. It’s between a sipper and an easy drinker, which for a cask aged beer is impressive. Not hardly sweet at all, which is great.

Aus der Flasche am 2017-02 getrunken. Typische Innes & Gunn Aromen treffen auf typische, sehr runde Stout-Aromen. Dazu ist diese Bier verdammt süffig. Klasse Teil! BBHansen (939) - Køge, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2017

Bottle. Black beer with a tan head. Caramel and light choocoate aroma with light whiskey, Caramel and whiskey flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel and whiskey lingers. JoeZasada (317) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown / blackish opaque with a thin tan head, moderate carbonation. Aroma is tinny, roasty, and oak-like. Taste: notes chocolate, roast, but not much burnt, warms to an oak sweetness. Finish is malty, oaky, some chocolate. Very good; this may be the best of the I&G’s beyond the original.

A very good stout. Not as heavy as a Guinness and not as creamy, but still a fine stout. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Black with a thin white head. Aroma is bizarre, like dank wood and booze. Has a really pronounced whiskey character, but not really in a good way. Tried at Wilson and Washburn in 2017. Ernest (7699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain, caramel), with a note of vanilla, light note of whiskey/alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
As with the bourbon dark ale, this is pretty timid and plain. Not much cask influence that I can detect, just a basic porter/stout. Fair enough, but ordinary and forgettable. alvaro78 (506) - Sevilla, SPAIN - APR 12, 2017
Aromas a whisky y madera
Buen aspecto cristalino y carbonatacion media.
Cuerpo medio-bajo. En boca caramelo y whisky. EL final es seco migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2017
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.
