Appearance is that of a black body with cola brown at the edges when held against the light. Moderate pour into the glass edge provides a two finger tan head with frothy substance. Head dissipates in a few minutes, leaving a thin remnant of various bubble sizes, and beautiful lacing.

Smell is reminiscent of other stouts, with that recognizable smoky malt, and a touch of hop. This particular stout adds a nice wooden presence, with hints of sweetness.

The taste is outrageous! I’m not sure how I missed the vanilla in the odor, but one sip and it reveals itself prominently. The ubiquitous smoked malt is there, along with a bit of hop presence. Although I’m also picking up chocolate and yeast, and just a touch of good earthy funk.

Mouthfeel provides a mellow sip and a slightly dry aftertaste.

Overall this is a fairly complex and moderately sweet stout, with a solid marriage of complimentary smells and flavors.

Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown in the pour, almost black in the glass. Finger of tan head that held well and great lacing.

Some good roasted malt smell, caramel and toffee.

Tastes like milk cream, harsh malt with a tease of sweet, bitter follows, ends with a good burnt malt grip. The oak cask is the backbone of it all, bringing structure and balance. It has a warming effect but not in the usual whiskey cask aged beer style.

Soft and creamy texture. Low carbonation, medium body, not as heavy as other cask aged beers.

One of my favorite whiskey cask aged beers. It's between a sipper and an easy drinker, which for a cask aged beer is impressive. Not hardly sweet at all, which is great.

Innes & Gunn has done it again. Their Irish Whiskey Cask beer is a very good tasting beer; it has a definite hint of Irish Whiskey aroma and taste. It`s not too strong, heavy or filling; certainly a great beer to enjoy St Patrick`s Day festivities.
Well done Innes & Gunn..
