fhoublon (314) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
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.

zimbo (526) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2012
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.

sulawang (600) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
pours ruby red, small head gone in 30 seconds, minimal lacing. A bit of malts on the nose. On the palate, burst of raisiny 6/10 sweetness, some orange in there, mild bitter hops in the background, and a bit of toffee. 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.

reebtogi (4097) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
330mL bottle poured a light brown color with a slightly off-white head and some fine lacing. Aromas of whiskey and caramel. Taste is mild whiskey with some caramel sweetness and a dry hoppy finish. This is a fine beer with nice carbonation and a medium body.

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 15, 2011
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.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2011
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.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours orange/brown. Aroma of cherry, raspberry, syrup and malt. Flavour the same. Quite thin, fruity and slightly dry. Not a lot else to say.
