Pretty good the Irish whiskey is present but faint not over powering . A bit to carbonated for my taste an amazing smell and nice look. I will purchase it again

My bottle says 6.1% ABV.
This one is a smooth sipper. Malted milk balls, burnt toast, bitterness from earthy hops and burnt grains. This one tastes pretty sweet. Overall I enjoyed it very much, and at $2.99 for a single, this one won't break the bank. Recommended!

Grunt fill from Albertsons. Light bodied for a stout, and pretty sweet too. Black body, small thin head. Sweet malty aroma, milk, burnt toast. Taste also seems overly sweet. Not too many whiskey notes. Still figuring this one out.

Pours a big, slightly frothy head; very good retention, and leaving behind adequate lacing. Brew is absolutely black.

Very dark and roasty on the nose, with hints of dark fruit, oak, and smoke.

Less than impressive on the palate; it's really a fairly straight forward dry stout, with lots of roasted barley, and red grape and dark fruit notes. The oak comes through on the palate, adding a nice extra dimension, but there's almost no trace of the whiskey, save a slightly sweet kiss right at the beginning. Some chocolate, and a touch of butterscotch.

Mouthfeel is far too fizzy, which really takes away from the enjoyment. A little back end heat.

This could easily replace any normal single digit ABV stout on tap in Scotland. Few would be likely to complain, but honestly, few would notice; it's just not particularly remarkable, which is what one should expect when a brewer with I&G's pedigree ages a stout on whiskey. What one should not expect is a lunch time porter indistinguishable in style from Guinness, and carrying only slightly greater body and fuller taste.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin brown head that dissipates to small patches with light lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet dark toasted malt, cocoa and slight whiskey and caramel. Flavor is mild dark toasted malt, cocoa, light nondescript whiskey and mild oak. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A rather light weight stout with distinct, but subdued whiskey and oak barrel notes. The stout base has an Export Stout profile with good malt and light chocolate notes. This is pleasant to drink, but surprisingly restrained flavors overall. I've liked the beers from this brewery, but all felt like they are pulling back from robust flavors. Although there is a good whisky flavor, it is muted enough to not be able to get any Irish whiskey character. Worth a try for the decent light stout base and whiskey barrel notes.

Black colored beer with a medium sized brown colored head. Nearly light proof it takes a strong flashlight to revel that this is indeed clear.

Smells of molasses and smoked malt. Lesser scent of black licorice. Smells of sweet whiskey. Slightly perfume scented and fruity and flowery.

Starts out on the sweet side with a notable smoke flavor. The flavor is bittersweet. Whiskey is subdued. Mostly this is just a mild flavorful stout.

Mouthfeel is on the thin side for a stout.

Overall pretty tasty, just don't expect strong whiskey flavor.
