So, I'm switching over to this categorized Review format because it seems to me like it's easier to read.
A- It pours a Nice, dark brown with a splash of crimson when held to the light. The tan head has poor retention, but it never fully fades. A nice thin layer of foam is left that leaves excellent lacing.
S- Sweet malt and oak Dominate with subtle hints of licorice and vanilla. It does smell a bit like whiskey.
T- Sweet, smokey coffee notes with hints of vanilla that dance across the palate. The coffee sticks around through the finish, which reveals a slight bitterness with underlying notes of toffee.
M- It's a bit lighter than I had expected, medium bodied with moderate, prickly carbonation.
O- It was good, I feel like it would have benefitted from a bit of a heavier mouthfeel though.

Deep brown, approaching black. Creamy, tan head holds together pretty well for a few minutes. Nice lace around the edges of the glass.
Roasted malt up front, a bit of chocolate and vanilla. Subtle notes of whiskey.
Roasted malt, but not overly so. Somewhat dry up front, and sharp. Whiskey notes at a nice touch. A bit of vanilla and the butterscotch notes I see in other I&G beers.
Medium body, wish it was a bit fuller. Soft carbonation helps things out. Alcohol is well hidden. Simple beer, with a hint of complexity. I enjoy these beers from I&G very much.

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.
