bottle. Pours almost black with a nice carmel head. The aroma is robust and the milk stout is prominent, as well as some chocolate notes. Very impressed by the aroma, light coffee. You get more coffee in the taste. The whiskey is light, but noticeable. Finishes rather clean. A good stout. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - JUL 15, 2012
[Bottle] Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma is heavy on coffee and whiskey. The taste also has a lot of whiskey influence, along with char. The taste is a little thin, and has a long, chalky finish. I’d be interested in trying this one in a non-tasting setting some time. Other than the char getting a little annoying, this was pretty solid though. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle from Alpar. Pours dark brown with espresso head. Aroma of cocoa, fudge, light coffee, vanilla, lacto, wood. Taste is sweet with coffee and light whiskey. Medium bodied and a dry, slightly bitter finish. I like it. hopscotch (11049) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. The nose furnishes notes of dried plum, burnt malt and subtle coffee with hints of chocolate and malt whiskey - maybe a trace of acetaldehyde. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor presents an odd marriage of fruity essences and roasted, moderately bitter malts. Finishes a hint chocolaty, but mostly bland. Where’s the whiskey and coffee? I like my stuff BIG! Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Thanks to burg326 for sharing this one around. Cheers, Adam! Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Nose is coffee, some light chocolate, and whiskey. Flavor is exactly as promised: roasted coffee and whiskey along with some earth and dark chocolate. Light to medium in body and lingering coffee and whiskey in the finish.

Thanks to Bob for the 750mL bottle! Poured high-viscosity brown with a creamy cap of dark tan head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up bit lactose and other sweet chocolatey notes joined by some dry-roasted coffee.. not a whole lot of whisky barrel was apparent, but there was related vanilla and a hint of oak.. came back to lactose sugars and chocolate on the back of the nose. The flavor found tangy whisky barrel accents over cream and chocolate notes at the core.. dry coffee roast, tart oak, and surprisingly clean whisky notes on the edges.. peppery and spicy, but with really good balance on the warm finish.. tasty stuff! Medium-plus bodied and fairly full on the palate.. lots of roast held the hefty sweetness in check.. I enjoyed the long, sweet-yet-barrely finish.. really good stuff! emacgee (4674) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Shared by turdfergson. Very nice pour, inky black with a dark chestnut brown head. Nice nose, rich with notes of blackstrap molasses and espresso roast. Bitter chocolate and a rich sweetness. Some bite comes through with a mild acidity but its very well contained in the beer. Nice residual body and modest carbonation. Coffee and chocolate dominate.

Bottle from MattyB83. Thanks brother! This was really fucking good. Black pour with a small tan head. Nose is roasty and lightly sweet; notes of whiskey, vanilla, brown sugar, coffee. Flavor is similar, very creamy palate, sweet, but never cloying. A nice surprise.
