3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy amber beer with a collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of whiskey and caramel, and lesser notes of alcohol and smoke. The flavor is also very sweet, which makes it sticky in the mouth. It has notes of whiskey and caramel, as well as hints of smoke. A lovely thick caramelized beer-whiskey.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yngwie. Clear, warm, amber golden with a dense, handsome, off-white head leaving some lacework. Aroma of wood and vanilla. Medium body, fairly sweet and caramellish with distinct whisky notes. Almost no bitterness. Perhaps a little on the sweet side. 051007

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at RBESG ’07. Amber colour, minimal head, clear. Sherryish woody nose with some vanilla. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Evident and elegant barrel flavour like a less peaty Highland whisky. The malt however is a bit mellow and not firm enough. Still a good interesting beer.

Thanks to Scopey for excavating this one for me, cheers Paul! Cloudy brown beer, good pale cream coloured head. Oxidised caramel malt nose. Oxidisation on the palate as well but some vigorous agitation got rid of the worst of it. What’s left is smooth creamy malt, lactose and a little caramel. Soft milky vanilla oak and sherry. Trace of dried fruits. Smooth finish. Usual I&G huge oak - can’t help but like them!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Sainsbury. Deep chestnut colour with thin off white head. More toffeeish that the regular version, buttery. Not a huge whisky presence or indeed wood flavour. A lot of greasy melted butter. No huge aroma. Again not impressed. OK, but what is it?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, copper pour, with an off-white head. Rich, malty nose, slightly peaty, with some fruityness as well. The flavor is sweet, with maltyness, some fruit notes, and not much bitterness. Neither in the initial flavor, nor in the finish. Full body. A nice, malty and peaty beer. I normally prefer more hoppy beer, but this one is nice, but maybe a bit on the sweet side. Repeatable indeed. (071005)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 330ml from Sainsburys in Banbury, aged 4 yrs. Dark copper with white head, floaters. I’m finding that many of the I&G beers are on the sugary sweet side for me, this has a heavy caramel note with hints of burnt mollasses. There is an overriding alcohol note, not sure if this is from the barrels, but I’m not really noticing an oaky flavour. Overall quite reasonable though.
