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.

Poured into a mug: color is black, with dark brown edges at the bottom, head is light tan made of fine bubbles, some lacing.

Smell is stouty: light chocolate, light roast, molasses.

Taste is similar, though a slight bit thin for 7.5% - chocolate, roast, molasses, hints of whiskey at the very end and more so as it warms

Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation, lingering bitterness, light sweetness.

Overall a decent beer with solid stout qualities and a just so subtle whiskey flavor.
