simonblaine (576) - Alberta, - MAR 14, 2013
Pours black with a marginal head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and slight whiskey aroma. Taste is chocolatey, coffee, roasted nut. Bold taste that fades to a slight metallic taste. Still quite yummy.

JoeZasada (316) - 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&Gs beyond the original.

A very good stout. Not as heavy as a Guinness and not as creamy, but still a fine stout.

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 (7624) - 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.

migwell (357) - Northampton, 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... its 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.

Gorgosh (488) - SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2017
Det finns nt tragiskt ver att Innis som experimenterar s att de slr knut p sig sjlv, och andras smaklkar, aldrig lyfter ver innertakshjd. Det finns som vanligt den klassiska smakbilden av en standardiserad stout som den hr gngen ramas in av fyra vggar tapetserade med aromer av irlndsk whisky. Det smakar precis som frvntat. Whiskyn r ngot nedtonad vilket r att betrakta som en frdel. Ovntat lite utanfr boxen fr att vara en l som snarare borde befinna sig lngt utanfr ramen.

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.
