Innis and Gunn Irish Whiskey Cask pours a dark brown with a small head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is full of sweet malt from the whiskey cask, along with a bit of roast and chocolate from the stout. The aroma is a little poorly integrated, but the taste makes up for it with smooth oak and whiskey tones over a generic, yet solid English stout dry roast. The mouthfeel is light for the style and gently carbonated, and the drinkability is great. Overall, this is another solid beer from Innis and Gunn. They seem to have a thing going on where they make complex yet delicate sipping beers. I'm all for it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pitch black in color, a nice off white head at the top that left a little bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Vanilla up front, some coffee notes, and a hint of whiskey on the tail end.

T: Same as the nose, just more of a roasty taste followed by the nice smooth whiskey notes, very good taste.

M - Medium bodied and nice amount of carbonation.

O: A good brew, well balanced, I think a little more whiskey flavor would have made this a little more tastier.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: perfect mocha head; very dark brown, opaque

Aroma: big chocolate, but on the sweet side; some molasses, figs, lightly burnt

Taste & Mouthfeel: roasted/burnt chocolate flavours, a great subtle smokiness, and it all combines for a rich, somewhat earthy brew that is like drinking firewood; good carbonation, smooth medium-heavy body; lingering bitter finish with some sweetness hovering in the background; raisins

Overall: a great stout, and the cask ageing seems to have a legitimate and enjoyable impact on flavour
