I have loved every Innis & Gunn beer i have tried, but i do not like this one and it is no suprise. Stouts are my least favourite kind of beer, never really liked any, but i had to give this beer a try. It was way too sweet for my liking, and had too much of a whiskey after taste. I also do not like whiskey lol.

This was my favourite I&G beer so far. Rich christmas pudding flavours with a balancing bitterness and a decent body, it lacks the cloying sweetness of the other I&G beers.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
Opaque black color with no visible activity. Creamy light brown 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, whiskey, oak, molasses, faint cheese, dark grains, herbal spices. Thick bitter earthiness, yet warming and not stale. Slick medium body with moderate carbonation, a little crispy. Strong finish, dry and tongue coating with tons of flavors. Lingering grassy spices, dark fruits and roasted coffee, wood barrel, and sugary whiskey. Superb ending. It’s bold but pleasant to drink, not overwhelming, but feels a little thin. Good flavors, nice balance, some freshness. Overall very good quality craft.

Almost black coloured beer with cream-colored head. Aroma of wood with a hint of whiskey. Taste of vanilla, sweet barley and wood.

From the tap. Light, slightly malty aroma. Dark brown color with a decent head. Mild whiskey and malt flavors with very little bitterness. Finishes fairly clean.

2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 16C Tropical Stout)

AROMA: Sweet dark malt and fruits; whiskey note in the background. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown to black; fairly clear with no highlights. Small, tan, soapy head mostly evaporates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Quite sweet with smooth dark grain flavors and restrained bitterness. Some cola-like taste and sweetness. Slightly chocolaty. Whiskey-soaked oak chips impart only faint flavor and mostly on the end. Some toffee notes as well. No hop presence. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with low carbonation and watery texture. Very smooth with clean aftertaste; no alcohol presence. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: As a stout it’s pretty good, but the wood aging doesn’t do much for it. Sweet for a stout (but not cloying). 7/10
