2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 500ml can from LCBO. Head dissapated immediately with non existent lacing. Low carbonation. Toffee flavours at forefront. Well incorporated alcohol. Oak in the aftertaste, not tasting the vanilla advertised on the can except a subtle note in the finish.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bouteille claire de 330 ml, dans une boîte de carton, achetée à la LCBO de Hawkesbury. Dégustée le 3 octobre 2009 (pint). Bière rousse limpide. Mousse peu, col mince et éphémère. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de bois bien présente. Goût peu agréable genre gazon/foin. Saveur de whisky, un peu de caramel/toffee. Ce n’est pas mon genre de bière, il faut probablement être amateur de whisky pour bien l’apprécier.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight whisky element to start on the nose this mad a very light and very fluffy head. Amber brown. Unusual morish flavour at first with very forward wood and slightly smokey malty butteriness which lingers. Not unpleasant nut unique. Slightly on the fat side and the whiskjy elelement is always there creating some acidity. Alcohol does eventually poke through as does its heaviness.Interesting but I had to force myself to finish it.

Post Borefts I Invasion of Fonefan and Charlottes room tasting! Clear amber beer. Butterscotch malt, not too sweet. Really not tasting that much else. Either my taste has changed or Innis & Gunn have gone downhill sharply.

Drank at the Newtown Brewfest. A brew with a rye, bread and maple flavor. There was a mild wood and toffee taste. It was ok for me.

Minor spices at the start and finishes semi-dry and again with the toffee. Excellent balance, medium complexity, short-medium length, medium depth. A balanced malty beer consisting of sweet raisin/orange fruits, malts, a bit of toffee, and minor spice.

330ml bottle. 2009 edition. Red/copper colour. Good crispness and a delicious taste of rye whisky. A very good beer. Shame about it being a limited edition.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle, pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma of oak, stale malts, and maple syrup. Flavour is very oaky, vanilla and some syrup. Decent, and better than the main Innis & Gunn concoction.
