Innis and Gunn Kindred Spirits Stout
Innis and Gunn did a first-time collaboration with Tullamore D.E.W. to create this year's Kindred Spirits Stout. My local liquor store manager recommended this one as a yearly treat. A little story lets you know what to expect. 11.2 oz bottle. 6.1% alcohol.
Nice aroma, rich chocolate with a nice whiskey kick. Sweet chocolate and cocoa flavors come first. Creamy texture. A very noticeable whiskey provides a streak of alcohol that brings out some vanilla, oak, and hints of smoke and roasted malt.
Whiskey flavors grow and persist. Not bad. Interesting.
