Bought this from Systembolaget when it was available. I have a hard time with the butterscotch which i think is dominating these beers, there’s also problems with all the ’special-editions’ which in my opinion are all pretty much alike. With that said. Roasted malt and butterscotch caramel with some sweetness.

Bottle. Pours dark brown caramel, with a big creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and caramel, as well as bread, oak and whiffs of whisky. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts, grain, oak and peat, and a too sweet finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper colour and after letting it warm up a bit no head just a few spots on the glass. Aroma is sweet mild toffee, mildly peaty, and sweet maltiness. I’m not getting a ton of aroma on this one. Taste is sweet caramel, vanilla, scotch notes, mild alcohol warming/bite on the finish. Very enjoyable beer, I would describe it as a sweet scotch like beverage though much less harsh/peaty and a much lower abv and makes a good dessert beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a minimal head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla and peaty smokiness. Taste is toffee, vanilla, some peat, slight bitterness. Overall it’s a nice oak aged beer in scotch casks bit it’s a touch too sweet. One of the better Innis offerings though.

330 mL. 7.4%. Pours a dark mahogany, coppery colour with a tan foam that bubbles away slowly. Aroma is roasted malts, hint of peaty smokiness and toffee. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped and rich in roast malt flavour. Finish develops a little of the whisky character, honey, toffee, and that oaky tinge as you swallow. Delicious.

Currently drinking whilst typing. Instant aroma of vanilla, toffee, caramel, subtle whisky notes and sweet fruitiness. A crystal clear amber colour with an off white fluffy/creamy head which stays for a while and disappears sometime through the beer. Flavours of sweet Danish bread, toffee and vanilla with a woody whisky bite and low bitterness, malty throughout the finish with a very mellow hop character. Smooth and easy texture, nothing huge in the mouthfeel and a gentle carbonation. Overall a very nice beer from Innis & Gunn, It’s just a shame to see it discontinued, as for me it was one of their more enjoyable beers. The whisky bite just does it for me and I do prefer it to many of their other beers. Very nice!
