We are pleased to present this special Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer bottled to celebrate Canada Day 2012.
Alongside ale malt we added Aromatic Barley Malt with imparts the beer’s rich toffee colour and satisfying maltiness. We used Goldings hops from 3 farms in East Kent to impart a delicate balancing bitterness and a fruity twist. We then slowly oak matured the beer to unlock the delicious flavours of vanilla and toffee locked inside the oak grain, only bottling it when we deemed it to have matured to perfection.

I’m a sucker for I&G beers. I adore their aromas. Big butterscotch, whiskey and oak. Pours a ruby copper with a small off white top. Taste is a stinging oak driven toffee with sweet malt and whiskey overtones.

Gerbeer (2567) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
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.

Belle couleur caramel, petite mousse blanche. Super nez bois de chene et de sous bois. Gout de sirop d’erable et de bois de futs, un peu sucrée. Peu de carbonation. Fin de bouche caramel brulé

(From Beers of Europe) Deep amber, small off-white head. Vanilla, oak and toffee. Definitely Innis & Gunn then! As with all their beers it may be too sweet for some but I think it’s full of flavour and a great laid back mellow late night beer.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a nice, resilient white head. Smell is oak and cherry. Taste is caramel, toffee, brown sugar, a touch of wood. Very sweet. Some subtle earthy bitterness, along with quite a bit of cherry and fruits. Wood is felt post-gulp. Light bodied. Excellent, very good beer!

worldbeertaste (1778) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Deep dark maroon with a red tint and a foamy thin tan quick disappearing head. Smells of oak, sweet malt, earthy, dark fruits like cherry and vanilla. Stong full musky aroma. Full oily body. Taste of wood and caramel, malt, toffee with a dry bitter hop finish. Deep full cherry flavour. Noticable alcohol. Sips slowly and tastes like a good scotch. Beautiful.

Reimer96 (1638) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a clear dark amber with a small white ring and no lacing. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, bourbon, allspice and dark dried fruits. Taste is caramel, bourbon, wood, camelized sugar and a nice spicy finish with some dried fruits. Finish is nice and dry and gives a well balanced flavor.
