More fuggles flavour. This beer is fantastic. I’ve enjoyed just about everything I’ve had with the innis and gunn name and this is just about the best

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Creamy but just bubbly enough. Well balanced and hoppy. Caramel and vanilla from barrel aging. Head does not last long. A gift from my sister enjoyed on New Years Day. Wish I could buy this in Florida.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, dark red. Lots of maple and sweetness from the bourbon barrel. Not overpowering though. Not bad, but still don’t like BA beer that much. 072712

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours coppery brown with a large, creamy head.
Nose shows toffee, caramel, butterscotch, oak and vanilla. Very sweet-smelling.
Similarly sweet flavours, almost syrupy sweet. Butterscotch, golden syrup, brown sugar, oak and soft booze. Pretty cloying to be honest.
Could use a thicker body and more carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A trully delicious beer. Innis and Gunn really deliver on greating a deeper yet still balanced flavour which is even better then their original and winter seasonal ales. Possibly my imagination or high expectations, but my feeling is 2011s was a little richer then 2012. Feel free to comment if you have an opion on this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Starts off amber but turns to a murky brown colour with a thin wispy swirl of foam. Loads of spice and fruit in the aroma and the flavour with a big alcohol kick to finish things off.
