12oz bottle. Poured a clear, burnt brown with a watery film for a head. Nose: mild roasted malts & nuts, sweet-ish, mild wood & whiskey (sounds better than it is). Taste follows the nose well - however, the malts take over and are a muddled mess... which really takes away from every thing else imo. Thin body. I think I have had 3 beers from this brewery to date... I doubt I will buy any more.
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.

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 (90) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2017
A very good stout. Not as heavy as a Guinness and not as creamy, but still a fine stout. ads135 (4590) - 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.

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 (492) - 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.

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. kassner (1657) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Porter color with not much head or lacing, wuite a bit of vanilla but very drinkable. Varbonation a bit high special right American Express thank you
