Rich aroma with caramel and vanilla dominating, but also some woody notes. Medium to full bodied, not too refreshing, but more packed with flavor. Lacking bitterness in the finish to balance the sweetness. Very interesting beer.

Poured it in my Westmalle glas - because it was the glas that most closely looked like the Innis & Gunn glas.
It pours a dark amber/copper body that has a lots of bubbles in it, with a thin creamy layer of foam.
Aroma of vanilla toffee and oak, fruity - i really love the aroma cant stop smelling it.
Flavor is of vanilla, toffee, oak, plum, little alcoholic tonse(the good kind)- but it isnt that large that you would excpekt from the aroma.
Palate is medium thick and pretty smooth but little harsch to, pretty fizzy.
Its a very good beer and very priceworthy.

Pours amber or light brown. Thick, off white head. Strong caramel, brown sugar, and cherry aroma. The scent had me prepped for something really exciting. However, the taste doesnt fully come together quite the way the aroma does. A caramel maltiness gives way to a tiny hop note. The beer carries a slight dryness. There is some whisky noticeable as well. Despite some missed expectations, the beer is still great.

Light caramel colour. Light body. Whisky nose, oak wood, smooth, whisky taste - with fine malt support. Not much hops. A very satisfying drink. Underrated in my opinion.

12oz bottle from Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Really nice bottle, despite the clear glass. Pours clear amber, with a moderate sized white head that fades quickly. Nice aroma of oak, brown sugar, and peat. The flavor is initially sweet caramel malt, then finishes with some mild hops. As the beer warms, some oaky, whisky flavors are present in the finish. Nothing exciting, but fairly refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Medium copper pour with 1-finger off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of oaky, bourbony caramel malt, some tannins, and some British hops. Tastes scotchy, oaky bourbony, with decent caramel malt, some tannins, and hops. Medium palate heft that seems to water out a bit as it warms. Average at best.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8/25/07 Sweet, tangy. Reddish amber out of a Riesling glass. Crisp, with a almost berry or citrus light smell to it. I don’t taste the oak. Not much mouth, but good none the less. Went great with cheap pretzels I had, superbly in fact. Sourish towards the end buy overall I enjoyed this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet entry and finish. Slightly peaty/smoky and a tad on the sour side too. Hadn’t noticed that with this beer before, so this might be skunked. It looks good in the clear bottle though. Thin body, yes and mouthfeel leaves a lot to be desired. I can imagine something like this would really come alive if served directly from the barrel.
