Gun Brewery Whisky Imperial Stout (7.4%)

This is a super Stout.
The can doesn’t tell you exactly how the whisky is used but I’m guessing that the beer has been barrel aged, and what I like about this beer is that the whisky isn’t overbearing, but instead adds a subtle boozy warmth to the background of the beer.
I also loved how the beer looked as I poured, its head forming a rich and thick creamy cappuccino fawn while the beer smelled of chocolate and walnut.
There’s an absolutely delightful malt body at work here, thick with creamy coffee, vanilla, honey and toasted brown bread, there’s a very welcome hit of spiky bramble and hedgerow greenery from the hops.
The addition of oats to the brew means that the beer feels smooth and thick, filling your mouth as you head towards the woody and boozy molasses tinged finish.
