stantheman (1101) - British Columbia, - NOV 10, 2012
Bottled. Very dark, almost pitch black, ever so slightly translucent, with a tan head. Malts evident on the nose. Flavor is jam packed with malts, along with vanilla, fruit and chocolate notes. Very rich and sweet. Wow!

Many thanks to shopkeeper from Abbot's Ale House for this sweet memory.
Bottle. Clear, rubbish black, almost without head. Aroma of caramel, whiskey, raisins, dates, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Whiskey, walnuts, raisins, dates and another dried dark fruits, nougat, alcohol and wild almonds in finish. Medium body, low carbonation, but still pleasantly warming.
Very good, enjoyable.

11.2oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a moderate creamy tan head. Aroma is wood, whiskey residue, faint vanilla, tobacco, and some soap. Taste is caramel, some whiskey, wood, light fudgy chocolate, and a little grain. Lightly bitter finish - with lots of boozy whiskey. Light-medium body. Average carbonation. Watery-oily mouthfeel.

beern (220) - Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Pours black and opaque with a one-finger tan head with an aroma of malt, oak and whiskey. Tastes of lively carbonation upfront with a light coffee body and mild oak, whiskey finish. It’s light bodied.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Det är detta öl som bryggeriet når sin höjd på. Riklig whiskykaraktär i fatlagringssmaken

dorain (691) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2017
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 (994) - Køge, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle @ friends/Boilermaker. Appearance: pours clear brown with goodbut short off-white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: barley, toffee, oak, whiskey and chocolate. palette: medium malty and whisky aroma, low to average carbonation, medium body, average to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by a medium bitterness, average duration and an oily texture. Overall: nice whisky aged ale.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 17, 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.

fsquirrel29 (91) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2017
A very good stout. Not as heavy as a Guinness and not as creamy, but still a fine stout.
