2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
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 (198) - 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. putrik (41) - - JUL 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Det är detta öl som bryggeriet når sin höjd på. Riklig whiskykaraktär i fatlagringssmaken dorain (647) - 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 (983) - 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. 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. ads135 (5031) - 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 (7817) - 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.
