3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark clear copper color with light head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of malt and caramel with a hint of wood. Definite oakiness but not overbearing. Additional flavors of sweet toffee, roasted malts, and vanilla, just like the description. Very nice.

Taste etc.: medium bodied with oily mid, thinner sides with oak-alcohol blend on top. Slight spice note, peppery caramel. Shorter finish. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very strong ruby colour. The oak is quite strong on this one and I felt like I was drinking a whiskey. Alcohol certainly comes through amidst the sweetness... perhaps I should have aged it longer. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. I enjoyed the 2012 edition much more than the 2011. Reminded me more of the old Canada cask. Aroma and taste of oak, vanilla and whiskey are nicely balanced with becoming too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BC Liquor Store
Nice amber color with copper hue; medium sized compact head. Light aroma of caramel. Medium body, pleasant but simple toffee flavor, some toasted notes, some sweet wood, oak; the bitterness is quite low.
As many other Innis & Gunn beers, not bad, but inoffensive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from LCBO. Beautiful clear deep ruby brown, with pretty much no head. Aroma of fruit punch, oak, and toffee. Taste is some fruit, lots of oak, some alcohol, and a mildly bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle. Pours a rich mahogany with a medium tan head, lots of lacing. Great on the nose, aromas of yeast, vanilla, rum, raisin, spice and toffee. Taste is big sweet malt in the forefront. Mellows out to a creamy woody finish, not a lot in the way of hops. Thick on the palate medium carbonation and full body, lots of texture. Another good special edition from I&G, now if only I had a steak and kidney pie to wash this down with.
